    Still worried

    I've tried therapy it isn't seeming to help. I really am still worried I'm at risk for HIV. I left my door unlocked last night and I love in a sketchy area so that was stupid of me to accidentally leave it unlocked.

And i have a better chance of getting hit by lightening?

I cannot remember if it was wet or dried but I have been sitting in front of it for perhaps a couple of hours before I noticed it. When I eventually alighted from the bus, there was some drops of rain that hit near my eyes and....

    Negative after 11 weeks

    Hi, I got an rapid INSTI HIV test done (11 weeks) 77 days after possible exposure. The results were negative. I am wondering what the chances are that they would become positive after that time.
