Unprotected oral sex carries an extremely low risk of HIV transmission. And I do mean extremely low.
Think along the lines of an estimated risk of .5 to 1 per 10,000 exposures with a source KNOWN to carry the virus. This assumes the act was carried to completion (i.e., ejaculation took place in the mouth).
If you remain concerned over these extremely small risk, then take another test at the 90 day mark. In the meantime stop drinking; it will kill you faster than these sexual events.
Andyburry...there is really nothing more I can tell you that I haven't repeated over and over again.
What do you want to hear?
That your night sweats are due to HIV? They aren't.
That you need further testing? You don't.
That you are HIV positive?
That your tests for HIV were wrong in their conclusion?
That you should move on and have a baby with your girlfriend? I don't think so; not until you're in the right frame of mind to finally accept you are HIV negative and stop thinking every other hour that you are infected.
In addition, you should actually pay attention to what I have written at least, what 50? 60? times over in this forum. I have repeated myself until I am blue in the face telling you that you do not have HIV.
Frankly, either there is something seriously wrong with you mentally or I fear you are enjoying playing some kind of sick game ignoring everything that has been posted before and continuing to ask the same questions over and over again.
So for the last time...MY OPINION IS THAT YOU ARE HIV NEGATIVE. MOVE ON FROM THIS.
No, shaunw84 is NOT implying that these tests are not accurate. And yes, the Oraquick test is a 2nd generation test.
Attached is an excellent review of different generation testing for HIV.
The advantage of, say, 4th generation testing deals with EARLY test results after an exposure to the virus. This is NOT the case with your son whom you put through several tests long after a non-exposure to the virus in the first place. All of this testing was done (and may continue to be done perhaps) because you still appear to have difficulty accepting the negative test results all have provided.
Yes; that is very common. It would be a very good idea to stop reading about symptoms on the internet, accept your test results (good heavens, not one but three negative tests!) and put your fear behind you.
Swollen lymph nodes can mean many things, including the fact that lymph nodes can be felt even when not swollen (especially in the neck) and we generally don't think about them until we read about symptoms of HIV. And then there's sometimes a tendency to poke at the poor things until they swell in protest.
Swollen lymph nodes are seen in early stage HIV (during ARS); after that HIV typically has NO symptoms for many years; not until the disease has progressed into the later stage (AIDS). In an untreated individual this typically takes as long as a decade after the initial transmission.
This is why we look more than a bit skeptical when someone posts what they think are symptoms months after a potential exposure and certain after a number of negative test results. They are not HIV positive but rather seem to suffer perhaps from "Internetitis" after reading far too many stories about HIV on the internet.
Look; you tested three times and all three times the results were negative. As has been pointed out here before, testing beats what folks think are symptoms to HIV each and every time.
What would it take for you to believe that you are HIV negative?
