Hi all,

I had sex with an unknown HIV status female on 1st April 11. Heres what happened. She put a condom on me and we started having sex. Then stupid me decided to be adventurous by taking my penis with the used condom on, with her vagina fluids and putting it in her mouth for a BJ. After a few minutes she then complained the taste was bad and removed the 1st condom, then wiped her mouth with tissue. She then put another condom on, but she opened it from the tip and pushed it onto my penis. She then did me on Oral with the 2nd condom on.

My concern is when she was wiping her mouth with the tissue, the HIV virus could have been on her finger nails or part of her fingers and I be contacted the way she put the 2nd condom on. After 4 weeks I started having ARS symptoms. I consulted a STD specialist, A 4th Gen Rapid test was done at 33 days (4 weeks 5 days) from exposure. Result came out Negative. The next day, I visited the clinic, A PCR DNA test was done at 34 days (4 weeks 6 days) as I was afraid and wanted treatment asap. Result came out Negative. I was in pain and having all these ARS symptoms, I decided to do a full STD body checkup on 13th May. Result came out I had Herpes-1. I never had Herpes, Sores or anything like that before. So for sure I can guarantee I got Herpes from this encounter.
On the 50th day, (7 weeks 1 day) did a 4th Gen Rapid test. Result came out Negative. It is really assuring. But I am weighing out the possibilities

My main concern now, is the HIV results conclusive as I have gotten Herpes-1 from this encounter? I believe it could be possible to be infected with HIV and Herpes-1 during the same encounter.

Will having Herpes and HIV on the same encounter affect the HIV antibody testing reliability?

I have a number of ARS symtpoms, which could be related to any other disease other than HIV. I am mentally preparing myself for the worse.. But the results are all Negative. And Based on ARS symptoms, it cannot determine it is HIV and the only way to tell is from testing.

I realised how fragile life can be and just 1 mistake can change a person's life. I'm trying to be strong and don't want to disappoint my family. I have told my gf and she has been really supportive, and I really wish to be myself again.

Thanks for the replies and hopefully a Dr can advise me on this. I be more than willing to make a donation but i'm tied up now due to my medical problems.

I probably be going for testing at 9, 11, 13 weeks.

What are my chances?
