I am a 23 year old female, I have never been sexually

Customer Question
active. I am waiting until...
I am a 23 year old female, I have never been sexually active. I am waiting until marriage. My sister had her girlfriend living with us and at the time we did not know that she was shooting up drugs. I used to leave my razors in the bathroom and I am pretty sure she used them several times. I was tested on November 24th for HIV and again on April 18th for HIV and Hep A,B & C. All were negative. Recently, I cut my finger with a knife while cutting vegatables andc my finger was bleeding, I don't know if anyone used them before me or how recent. Shortly after that, I was going to use nail clippers but was spraying them off with everywhere bleach and whatever was on the nail clippers and the bleach got into my cut. I was tested after the exposure with the knife and nail clippers 5.7 weeks after and it was also negative. Should I be tested again since I was 4 days short of 6 weeks and was there a risk of HIV or Hep from the exposures of the knife and or nail clippers.

Hello,
It would be very unlikely that you have HIV or any Hepatitis from what you describe - and since almost 6 weeks and negative, you do NOT need to be tested again.

that 5.7 week test is concerned conclusive?
Doctor: Dr. Owen, Board Certified Physician replied 8 years ago
This would be fairly conclusive - I usually say 6 weeks - but essentially 5.7 weeks is 6 weeks.

I have had severe anxiety over this for several months since the first test in November, what would you recommend for this stress? Do you think re-testing is recommended? or should I let this go and move on?

Doctor: Dr. Owen, Board Certified Physician replied 8 years ago
If you really want to relieve the stress - get another test for HIV and Hepatitis - and then this will put this to 'bed' for you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
