I asked a question Previously on this forum in regards to my worry of HIV and you answered the questions pretty clearly but I find myself still in the midst of a lot of worry.
The situation is that I had exposure that I was worried about and subsequently tested using fourth generation that based tests through STD check.com which uses quest diagnostics as the laboratory. The test were conducted on the 58th day and 130th day still essentially eight weeks and 18 1/2 weeks Both tests were negative
I’ve had scares over the last 2 1/2 to 3 years a few times and I’ve always gone crazy with the testing and this time I literally took only two tests.
I feel I’ve gotten to the point where I am realizing that there is a bigger issue in terms of my thinking and not being able to move past my fear of HIV. What drives me crazy is after intercourse with my girlfriend she tends to get sick a few weeks later and then this cycle of worry and fear just keeps coming back
Sorry for the long-winded details above of my mental state but just for reassurance purposes with the above negative tests I should have absolutely zero fear and further testing for this disease would be a waste of time and money, am I correct in that conclusion?
Would there be any reason for me to have a further test from a scientific standpoint?
I don’t even feel that testing for a non-scientific conclusion is even worth it because all I do is live in this cycle of testing and fear of testing and fear.
I guess I paid again to find some reassurance as I have also lowered the frequency of intercourse with my girlfriend Auto some crazy made up for year in my mind even though I tell myself you have tested above and beyond what is considered conclusive.
Thank you for your time and I hope it wasn’t a waste of time actually.
