Welcome to Just Answer.
When did you have last test?
last yr cant relly remember but i kind of remember like in may of 2012
When you did not have any exposure to HIV in last 10 years, it should not come positive.
Usually in 97% of cases it will be positive by 3 months after exposure.
no i have not had any exposure to hiv i have been with my husband for the past 10 yrs and only with him
So you need not to be worried.
You are not at risk.
but i also have another question Im embarrassed to say this but i also have herpes and me and my husband take care of ourselvs with that part of our lives can it be i may have hiv also
because of the herpes
No, herpes & hiv are different viruses. Though a sore in the genital can increase the risk but as you are not exposed to HIV virus, the risk should not come.
Another question do herpes and hiv have similar symptoms or different symptoms
Did you have herpes eruptions?
Did you have any symptom from herpes like vesicles?
what is vesicles?
Herpes causes painful vesicles or rash. Vesicles are blister like as you see following a burn.
The HIV symptoms are different. It depends on the stages.
i have but only like 2 times since i tested positive for herpes butthey were not bad
Yes, herpes may not cause any symptom too.
Many did not know that they have herpes without test.
As you do not have any exposure, there is no reason to worry about HIV.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know
i have noticed that when im going to begin my period i feel like a tingeling sensation and i usualy tell my husband that we should not do anything because i have read that my period can cause a flareup
Tingling can be a symptom with herpes but it can come from other cause too.
Another question i have been trying to explain to my husband that having oral sex is not a good idea since i have herpes and to be honest i didnt find out i had herpes till like 3 yrs ago so we did have unprotected sex me and husband so i say no oral sex well me to him because i dont let him do that to me so am i right not to have oral sex
In some cases genital herpes can cause eruptions in mouth area.
Because i know that he might be infected too so i know having oral sex can put me at risk on having an ifection in my mouth right
It can affect mouth area.
If you have any follow up question, please do not hesitate to ask.
The reason i decided on asking my question is because i have been going through a really tough time these past few weeks by thinking about hiv because i hope its because im really paranoid that i have been hearing that word everywhere and it started scaring me since i do have herpes and i know it is much easier for me to get hiv if i have herpes but i know i have been in a one on one realtionship for 10 yrs and i wanted to know if i was still at risk to test positive if it had been a while since i have had sex with my ex
As you are in one to one relationship for last 10 years, you should not be scared.
I know that anal sex is bad too right because my husband has been trying to convince me to have anal sex but im scared what do u suggest sorry im being so out there but i have alot of things in my mind
As i mentioned before, in 3 months 97 % of cases will come positive.
In anal sex, you need to have good lubrication. Otherwise there can be risk of injury.
You can reference this link for additional information on this topic.
You can discuss with your husband about the issues noted in the link.
ok i know i have never had anal sex before but when i was fisrt diagnosed witht he herpes virus i know i told my dr that i had something in my anal section & he saw and he told me he thought it was herpes so how could it of gotten back there since i have never had anal sex so now im scared that if i have anal sex and if i do have herpes in my anal part they can flareup and cause a big problem
Physical, emotional stress, injury etc can flare up herpes. if you had herpes there, I would suggest to avoid anal sex.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Ok Thank you for all of your help it has helped to put me at ease because i have not been sleeping well since i have been with the hiv situtaion in my head for wks now Thanks...
Ok so if i want to get in contact with you again how can i do that?
Another question im not taking any mediction for my herpes is that wrong should i go to my dr and ask for medication
You are always welcome. You can open question requesting my name.
If you do not have eruptions or rash from herpes, it is not necessary.
