Question: Hi Dr.
I posted my thread which was answered by XXXXXXX jangid. I have just a couple of questions. I will just summarize my question. I had a brief unprotected sex with a CSW on 1st Oct 2015 i did not ejaculate in her. I had myself 4th generation duo tests just after 7th week 12th week 22nd week. After I posted this thread again for peace of mind i got myself tested yesterday i.e. after 25 weeks all has come negative. My questions are:-
1. I read somewhere that a person got infected in a hospital because of too many blood testing.this scared me.Have you ever heard of anyone getting infected beacuse of many hiv testing? I got myself tested in an international lab. Metropolis healthcare
2. I am pretty much convinced I dont have HIV but this article scared me and now I dont wont to get tested again
3. As per your expertise what would be that patients case and what are the chances in my case can i forget about HIV and move on

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

Welcome to HCM.

Metropolis healthcare is very reputed laboratory so chances of getting infected in lab are very unlikely.

You need not to get tested again as you are 100% safe and free from HIV because all the test results are negative even after 25 weeks post exposure.

The cases about which you are talking about is just misnomer and the chances in your case are nil so forget about HIV and move on in life happily.

Thank You
