Anxiety over HIV?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Okay so could I have HIV

I started dating someone new in December

The last time he slept with someone before that was in September

I made him get tested in December time/January time and everything came back fine

I also had a test in February and it came back fine but that's only 2 months

    If he's been tested 3 months after the last time he slept with anyone else, and you've been tested since then (and neither of you has slept with anyone else since September), there is almost no chance that either of you has HIV.

    It's actually quite difficult to get HIV via heterosexual sex anyway, and personally, I'd be more worried about other STIs.

      I always do hence why I made him get a full STI screening but I always think like what if he made up the results like what if he faked the text

      I suffer from very bad anxiety including a very bad health anxiety I worry about this stuff on a constant, I even got my nails done before and convinced myself I caught HIV from the machine

      same with piercings and tattoos I am completely fine in the moment then as time goes on my mind will start messing me over

      Yeah you are right but there are times when I am on my own and I will pick up my phone and start googling stuff it's worrying, I feel like it's going to eat me alive. My doctor is referring me for cognitive behavioural therapy
