Hi, I wanted to have clarity on some of my actions, the episode goes on as follows: -
1) 27 August 2013 - Unprotected Oral Sex - Receiving
2) 4 September 2013 - Unprotected Oral Sex - Receiving
Tested Negative for HIV on 4th October 2013, i.e. 5 weeks after 1st exposure and 4 weeks after 2nd exposure
3) 16 December 2013 - Hand Job; But when the act was going on she was giving me a hand-job, I was fingering her and as soon as I cummed, she stopped and I wanted to carry on that is why, without thinking I took hands which were covered in somewhat vaginal fluid and started stroking my penis for 3-4 times...is this high risk??? The girl told me that she gets tested for HIV regularly, but this happened.
Now the main part of my worry is that 13-15 days after this exposure, I was diagnosed with Herpes Zoster, this freaked me out, as I read somewhere that Herpes is caused when body's
immune system is very weak, does this mean I have HIV? Also, doctor prescribed me these medicines: -I got diagnosed with Herpes Zoster in 1st week of Jan 2014 after a week of rashes developing on my back and right arm pit, under arm pit actually.
Doctor advised me these medications: -
Zovirax (800 mg)- 35 tablets
Antobiotic - Phexin - 20 Tablets
Medrol - 14
Macetol - 14
These dosage stopped 10 days before i.e. on 10-11 Jan 2013. I got tested Negative for HIV on 21st January 2014, i.e. 21- weeks from 1st exposure, 20 weeks from the 2nd exposure and 4.5 weeks from 3rd exposure, but do you think these medicines might have played a role? Are these results conclusive?
Kindly let me know at your convenience.
I had previously consulted a Doc over here, my Consultation ID: - CS012220140530.
In that he had recommended to take another HIV test after 6 weeks. Now I wanted to know few things: -
1.0 Is it necessary for me to get tested again?
2.0 No exposure after 16th december 2013, as mentioned on the previous questions
3.0 I am really stressed out thinking I will have to go through the testing again
4.0 As my Herpes Zoster was not completely resolved, doctor had prescribed me these medicines Althrocin 250 mg (3 times a day for 10 days) & Ebast 20 (2 times a day for 10 days), now I do not know when I stopped taking these medicines, at least 15 days before today, so if I take the testing now, will it be conclusive, or these medicines will play some role in the results, shall I wait for the few days before testing again?
Looking forward to hearing back.
