Hi everyone

I am sick and tired of wondering do i stand a chance. I met this girl through a friend, she is a sex worker, we slept together on saturday 9/12/2012, we used a condom and it broke, I was very drunk and did not notice so we had sex for 15 minutes without a condom, until she had an orgasm, i also came inside her, I was so worried that the next morning i phoned her , requested her to go with me for a test and she agreed, both our tests were negative thank GOD, but then i realised she is a sex worker and im sure before me has slept with more people, and maybe without a condom, so the window period was still open to HIV she said she slept with two other giuys without condom and the rest she was careful!!!!!!!!we had done and ELISA test for HIV 1and 2 , my question is, I believ in God and know i cant be worried and pray at the same time, but why am i so worried, i have text her to ask abt her sex history in the last 3 months but she does not want to answer me!!!!!i have to wait for 3 months to get tested, im so worried what do I I do, I also am sniffling and is the 11/12/2012, are these symtoms already, she is an african girl from Kenya born in uganda.........she says her mum passed away fro HIV so she is careful, but if she is so careful why did she tell me the condom broke, she felt it and did not say anything??????????????what to do what to do????

Well, you can always take a screening test now. It's December 10, 2012; this is just about three months past the broken condom event. Any test now will certainly be accurate in terms of your status.

harrytooworried replied to georgiagail's response:
Thanks gail, my ordeal happened this past saturday, and we went for the test on sunday, the next day both negative, I thank God for that, I do know that the results could change and i have to wait till feb 9th which will be two months or march 9th which will be three months since it happened...........I asked her to come for the test because i wanted to know if she was positive thiss past weekend, i keep texting her n she says im ok, but before tghe test she would say i dont know, now she has the confidence o sa im ok.......and i keep telling her there is a theree month window period, from 9th sptember to december 9th 2012 when we had sex where any sexual encounters she had cannot be accounted for, we did the elisa for hiv 1 and 2 this past saturday, should we go for a viral load test or wait three months its expensive too, cost me over $250 for both tests, is it true that the chances of getting hiv are 1 in 200, and so there may be a good chance? as well as what does one do so as not to worry?

harrytooworried replied to harrytooworried's response:
It was vaginal sex, no oral, and kissing too, no anal or anything like that, she did come i felt it, and i came inside her too////;-(
georgiagail replied to harrytooworried's response:
Ah, so you mean the encounter took place DECEMBER 9, 2012 (12/9/2012) as opposed to 9/12/2012.

Your test done the day after the event was totally useless. Hers likely wasn't if her last unprotected encounter was at least 3 months prior to yours.

Stop running around spending money on all these tests on you. They are useless this early in the game.

harrytooworried replied to georgiagail's response:
thanks ill keep you posted i plan on taking her back in 8 weeks to get tested.....n illl get tested too.....thanks
