tafkalil saidI'm totally freaking out right now....
The last guy I was with just contacted me and said that he just got results back saying that he is HIV pos. We fooled around about a month ago, and I regrettably have to say that I didn't use protection. So is there a time limit I need to wait out before I get tested, or should I go ahead and schedule an appointment?
You can get tested now, but, you'll need to get tested again in about 6 months to just really be sure that your bad behavior didn't nail you.
It's good that you posted. Like being a fat ass, and its related diseases, HIV is almost 100% preventable via proper behavior patterns. The I,I,I,me,me,me self-indulgent irresponsibility of unsafe sex really has to go in order for these diseases to be contained...be they obesity or HIV. As I said, it's nearly 100% avoidable through good behavior.
Good for you for sharing your experience. I hope it's one you don't choose to repeat, for the sake of yourself, and the sake of society.
Cross your fingers, and if you're still clear in six months, you're likely lucky...this time.
Don't be an idiot about sex.
If you end up positive, well, I hope you'll spread your lesson to others, so they don't repeat your ill-thought behavior.
Most health organizations have vast resources on the disease, and that information should be easily attainable.
While you wait to see if you've made yourself sick, take time to educate yourself on your sexual health, and the various STDs. Contingent to your bad behavior, risks of infection vary.
