Talking about home testing for HIV

Tell your story




I'm worried and very suicidal

Had protected sex with 2 girls and get a negative after 5 days after having sex. The first girl i feel normal and I’ve mistakenly decided to have sex with another girl a fortnight after I have sex with the first girl. Which I’m began to fell ill. The day after I have sex with the second girl. I decided to go to the doctors to get a HIV test which he tell me to come back 4 days and after 4 days I came back and it say negative. But inside I’m still worry and suffering from anxiety and even thought of committing suicide. Now it been a months from this happening and I’m developing some symptoms. And also I still have herpes on my lip, fatigue, sore throat, headache, swollen nodes on the armpit and mouth, fever, persistent diarrhoea, ulcers and white tongue, strep throat, oral thrush, red blotches, and skin rash. Also if I got tested on the forth generation test and I’m negative. That mean I’m negative and won’t get HIV in the future.

Hi Ken Thanks for getting in touch with us. All negative tests results are encouraging. A negative result from a 4th generation test which is performed by a laboratory will be reliable 4 weeks after possible infection. Also it is virtually impossible to contract HIV as a result of protected sex. The chances of either of your partners being HIV positive is about 4 in 1000. So overall your risk from these incidents is truly negligible. Finally remember that HIV is a completely treatable condition. Only not knowing your HIV status is risky. And you have taken the correct action in getting tested. I hope that this helps. Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Limited
