[Question #501] about my relationship

44 months ago
Dear Doctors,,

Hi I want to ask about something I had sex with a Escorts girl the relationship was with condom ( vaginal sex ) and ( oral sex ) for 2 minutes the ( vaginal sex ) with condom and the ( oral sex ) without condom and I do 3 tests 

1- after 33 days ( antibody ) : negative
2- after 44 days ( rabid test ) by blood : negative 
3- after 53 days ( combo ) : negative 


this the first sex i had.


the second sex it was just ( oral sex ) but I put a condom in my penis and she do the oral sex until I cum. but I don't do any tests 
I just do it for the first  relationship.


My questions are: 

1- are the tests in the first relationship certain  ? or and I must do another tests ?
2- for my second relationship, is oral sex transmitting the disease ?   
3- can give an  advice for me because I 'm very afraid ?

thanks for you.

Welcome to the Forum.  I will be happy to answer your questions.

1.  Combo (that is, combination HIV antigen/antibody) tests for HIV are 100% conclusive at any time more than 28 days after a potential exposure.  For antibody on;ly tests, results are not conclusive until 6-8 weeks after testing (8 weeks-56 days).  Thus your combo test is conclusive.  You can rely on the tests and do not need more testing.

2.  HIV is not transmitted by receiving oral sex.  thus, even without a condom, receipt of oral sex does not put you at risk for HIV. 

3.  In addition, condom-protected sex is safe sex.  Condoms are one of the most effective ways to prevent HIV is exposed to an infected partner.  I recommend that you continue to use condoms for new sexual encounters with partners of unknown HIV status going forward.

I hope these comments are helpful to you.  EWH

No, no more testing is needed for the encounters you have described. 

Touching and kissing does not lead to transmission of STIs.  EWH

You are permitted three responses on our Forum. this will be my third and final reply if I am unable to answer your question to your satisfaction.  I hope this answer will be sufficient however.  The doctor you spoke with was misinformed.  Many careful scientific studies have shown that combo tests are completely reliable 28 days after exposure and do not have to be repeated after that.  "Official" recommendations often recommend longer times but they are overly conservative.  I hope this answer will satisfy you- my answer will not change.  This thread will be closed later tonight.  EWH
