I'm sorry that your virtually no risk activity which you have previously discussed with both Terrie and Dr. Handsfield continues to needlessly worry you. As Dr. Handsfield told you "Repetitive anxiety driven questions are not permitted on the forum. This is definitely your last one about this exposure, tests, etc. If you try again, the question will be deleted without reply and without refund of the posting fee. This policy protects people from themselves (to not spend good money when the answers won't change) and because such questions carry little educational value for other readers, which is one of the main purposes of the forum." Not describing the exposure does not change this- this is still a repetitive question. I will provide very brief comments and there will be no further responses to this or future questions about this exposure.
Your tests are conclusive. If a person acquired HIV, 4th generation HIV tests of the sort are always positive within 28 days of exposure and then remain so for the rest of the person's life. The antibiotics you took make no difference either.
Please believe your tests and do not waste your time or money on further tests. If you cannot stop worrying, I urge you to seek professional counseling to work through this. I say this only in the interest of your mental health. EWH
