Resolved Question:

I was wondering if you could explain something to me. I was wondering if electrical currant could affect or "kill" the antibodies in your body? The reason why Im asking is: In Feb 2014 I had unprotected vaginal intercourse (I am a male). In July 2014 (5.5 months later) I was shocked electrically at work (high voltage, low amps. Much like a police taser or car spark plug(around 10,000volts)). At this point I became fatigued, constipated and had a loss of appetite and weight(this lasted serval months). I began to worry about a possible HIV infection. So I was tested at 5.5 months, 7 months and 8 months past possible exposure. All came back negative. The tests actually check for the Antibody, but then I became concerned that the shock may have "killed" the antibodies making them undetectable. The CDC claims 97% of people will show within the first 3 months, and in rare cases 6 months. I have surpassed all of that, I was wondering if I could consider my results conclusive?

Thank you for your query at
Prolonged exposure to high VOC stains and paints is what is associated with probable birth defects in the unborn child.
In your case, the exposure was very brief, and that too with the windows open.
Also, once it has dried and aired out, there is no reason to worry.
All said, in my estimate, you should not be worrying at all.
The exposure has been negligible.
Also, at 8 weeks, please get an ultrasound scan done to confirm the well being of the baby.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further.
