    Please assess my encounter

    I had a sex with a CSW several weeks ago, during the encounter I used a protection. After ejaculation I stayed inside until my penis became flaccid, when I pulled out the condom stayed inside her. It was my first encounter with the CSW, I felt very nervous. I have been tested for Xpert RNA PCR Hiv-1 qualitative at 24 days, a finger prick test of Acro biotech at 42 days post the encounter. Both have been performed at a state owned clinic. Should I get tested again for 4th gen assay at 45 days as CDC....

    HIV concern..

    I am a straight 21 year old male. I had unprotected sex for the first time on June 25 with a girl for a few minutes. I started with a condom but could not finish so I took it off for the end. A few days after, I developed a lot of pain in my groin area and legs. I went to my doctor and he said I have an infection and prescribed me penicillin. It turned out to be a muscle strain after an MRI and pain pills. However, I finished the medicine. About 7 days into the medicine treatment, I developed a rash....

    An obsession with testing

    I had a sex with a CSW several weeks ago, during the encounter I used a protection. After ejaculation I stayed inside until my penis became flaccid, when I pulled out the condom left inside her.

    Could hypnotism be the cure for HIV?

    Ask yourself this question, Do you believe that the mind is powerful? If your answer is yes, then here is some food for your thought. The mind is said to be very powerful, when one focuses and channels one's energy the result is said to be powerful enough to move a mountain. Let's think of something much much smaller. Can we change a cell? Just one cell in our body? What if we gather a group of people diagnosed with HIV from different countries and hypnotize them to think they can bring forth....

    Blood test

    Hello, Been reading around and was hoping Gail can help answer. Ty for what you do and spending time to answer questions. My experience is unprotected sex a ex girlfriend back in 2009. I didn’t really pay much attention to it until I decided to test in 2013. The Dr gave me a blood test antibodies 1/2 and it came out non reactive. Was I suppose to take this test sooner? Also is this good after years later? (This happens to me my only sex since then, none) I’ve have had rashes/white thing on my tongue....
