Hi. Last year (June/July) I tested for HIV using a rapid test. Got a faint Test line and my mother (who is medical practitioner) suggested the test negative. I wasn't satisfied with the result though. In December we tested again first result had a strong control line and a very faint Test line, so we repeated and it was negative. Now, I tested yesterday and there was a faint line again, so I requested blood samples to the lab. Should I be worried about faint lines in a space of almost 12 months?

Hi, I am 26 years old man. I had sex with one of my old girl-friend on 3rd July, 2010. On that day we met and decided to have sex after a long time. After warming-up (had some mouth to mouth smooches) she helped me to wear the ‘condom’ using her own hands. But, at the time of intercourse my penis became shortened, may be due to we had no emotions in between us anymore. Though I had a feeling that my penis got into her for a very short period of time and that moment I also felt that, the head of my condom became wet due to vaginal fluid. After a big dissatisfaction I removed my condom holding the head of that (Where I felt a little amount of vaginal fluid caught into my finger-tips). After that I rubbed my fingers in bed-sheet and then went to washroom and rinse my hand by water only (Did not use any soap) for 10-15 seconds, then I washed my penis and touched/rubbed the tip of it (penis hole) to clean it (cause, a little my-hormonal fluid and condom’s lubricant was present there) with my finger-tip (Which mean there was a contact with the hole of my penis and the tip of my finger which was not properly clean by soap) for a very little time. Now the problem is after one month of that incident, last 2-3 days I am having headache, my stomach is unstable and having loose motion and also tiredness all the time. (This may caused due to rainy reason as well) Now my question is- 1.     Is there any possibility that I caught by HIV? 2.     How can I come to know my AIDS status? 3.     Worst case, if I caught by HIV, is there any medicine to survive? If so, then how long I can survive? Also I would really like to know when should I take the HIV test, as I mentioned in my previous question, the incident happened on 3rd July, so shall I go for 3rd October for ELISA test or you want me take the HIV DNA by PCR test now (as already 35 days past, the incident occurred). I have another query regarding the smooches, that is – that day I shaved my facial hair 4 hours prior to that incident occurred and I had no major or minor cuts or injuries. My question is – As I was shaved therefore may be my facial skin had some open pores or may be very little sensitive or one layer thin than normal skin though I used safety razor. After that when her tongue or saliva contacted some of the part of my face (especially which part moustache grows). Can this transmit HIV in me? Please let me know your concern. I know that is a mistake I had done, because I was unaware of that what my girlfriend was doing these may days. It may be possible that she is clean and may be she is not. But the sex was not unprotected and there was no 100% sperm-contact, which I can guarantee. Please let me know what should be done now because I am too much worried. Also let me know, shall I look for any other side-effect for the time being. Thanks and Regards SD
