How I Got Infected With HIV by Ronaldo24682: 4:10am On Aug 16
I felt like sharing so others will learn, this might also create awareness as I feel a lot isn’t done to educate people about the insidious HIV.

I will try to be as brief as possible. Sometime this year I had a fling with a girl, I have always been careful as to use protection when I ever I have sex, unluckily for me my condom broke, I realized this immediately and pulled out, got a new condom and continued, wasn’t up to three weeks or so I fell ill, malaria like symptoms and all, during that same time I started having some hiv symptoms like.

Had to go for a test it came out negative, this was around week 4 or so. Despite this test I knew I was positive, I just had the feeling I was, the doctors and lab attendants were just playing it down, no disrespect but most lab scientists here have really poor knowledge on HIV test kits and all.

Lab test negative and ur thought gave u positive.
Rush to another hospital to affirm the result. And do away with ur negative thought.

So I had to do another test at week 6. This was when the test picked up the virus. I will try to educate people here with the little i learnt, maybe it will help for those who wants to learn.
We have two different types of hiv test kits. One test for both antigen and anti bodies this one picks the virus as early as two weeks, and results comes out withing days to a week, with a window period of a month(meaning by a month and your result shows negative then you are free). The other checks for anti bodies alone and this one picks the virus withing a month for few people, mind you for few people and most people at three months as that is when the body might have produced enough antibodies for it to be detected. And the latter is what we use here in Nigeria, where finger is pricked or blood drawn and the result comes out within 15-20minutes.
The bad thing here is we are not well informed about the window period and seroconversion( period when one is turning from negative to positive and takes as long as 3 months in most people and 6 months in some, meaning your result might show negative yet you are positive) and all that, I advise you google this, due to this lack of information people go about thinking they are negative and go about infecting others, until the sickness has progressed to a later stage where they start falling sick.
My piece of advice is ensure you use condom( and pray not to be unlucky like me, the girl who gave me has no idea she’s infected ) if condom breaks there’s what they call PREP, it’s a medication used within 72 hours after exposure to prevent you from catching the virus if your partner is positive.

And please the government should try to create enough awareness as this virus is so common I know about this since I became positive. Please no one should ask me what my symptoms were as no two person can have the same symptom, if you think you might have been exposed go for a test.

Apus:



Did you do a follow-up test to arrive at this conclusion?? Modern HIV testing procedures can now detect HIV between 4-6 weeks. Your symptoms may not necessarily be connected to HIV, but some other form of STIs.

In all I'll suggest you do a follow-up test. I am not saying this to make you feel better but your anxiety may also be the reason you feel some of these symptoms.
I sure did still +. I am ok now, already came to the fact I am positive, I don’t feel bad anymore about it since I started connecting with others I met here on nairaland.

The Rapid kit test kit will detect hiv virus as early as 4 weeks. You don't need to visit the lab anymore to confirm your status. Only high risk people are advised to visit the lab for proper confirmation. HIV is not a death sentence and always wear a condom its 90% safe the other 10% is only when your condom breaks and I think you might have been exposed to HIV before now and you didn't know. Getting infected because your condom broke and you changed immediately is not a common norm. Probably there's more to the story you aren't telling us. It's possible you continued having sex when your condom broke

it can doesn’t mean it always will. Check on the other guys thread. He tested negative at week 4 with the same Rapid test. And what do I stand to gain lying about pulling out or not on time. Does that change my status. And again prior to my testing positive I did a test early this year.

You either had sores on your dick or when you pulled out, you continued having sex for a while before wearing a new condom.

Kindly confirm this cause getting hiv by what you listed above is 1 in 10 billion.

Not disputing anyways.

Not even expecting you to fully remember events of that day considering the trauma of getting infected. Hiv is not the end of the world anyways. I am sure you are already on drugs, take them.

But what you listed above has so many questions marks.

Nairalanders ehn. Una no go kill person. See it requires just one exposure to get this n immediately d codom broke definitely it was in the v jay, even if he pulled out immediately you must have had at least one thrust to know the condom broke. So the guy might be saying the fact.
And about the test level I know of someone who tested positive at week 11 after doing series of test with all coming out negative. About 10 test o withing 11 weeks lol. This one na true story. I pitied the girl. She gt d feeling but last last result show positive. So no go about misleading people with that four weeks crap. Most people go just Dey treat malaria up and down.

DON'T KILL YOURSELF!

​​MAXIMUM EXTREME RANGE OF SEX IS 13 MINUTES..​ for married men and women only. Stay away from Tramadol...

Men Please, stop killing yourselves with aphrodisiacs (Sex Enhancing drugs).

Depending on what side of the sex duration spectrum men fall on, an average of five minutes is good.

But, according to a 2008 study of United States and Canadian sex therapists, sex that is “too short” lasts one to two minutes, “adequate” lasts three to five minutes, and some extreme condition is seven to 13 minutes.

It seems that anything longer than ten minutes is unusual.

So, why then has the issue of sex in marriages become a hard nut to crack.

Today all medications on the market has it written on their labels: sexual weakness.

This is giving ladies the impression that the maximum Five minutes of sex isn't enough making them pressure the men to seek for supporting aids (aphrodisiac).

The youth are dying early because of the usage of these drugs.

Knowing therefore that the maximum range for sex is 3 to 5 minutes, our women are to be content with what their husbands offer them.

Men are also to remember that the pistle damages earlier than the mortar. Be wise and stay healthy and strong.

Men! Men!! Men!!! How many times have I called you? Take note and beware.���

Please send this to the men/women in your lives to prevent early death.

I don talk my own. If you like hear & if you like no hear.

Nah you sabi.
