I’m from India.
So I had sex with a prostitute on 15 feb 2021 and 15 march 2021. On both occasions, I received unprotected blow job and had protected vaginal sex.
I didn’t care about HIV then.
Later I started taking these around 20 May,2021 for general well-being:
1) Multivitamin tablet 1 daily
2) “Ashwagandha” tablet twice
3) Fish oil supplements
Ashwagandha is a medicinal herb, boosts immunity. Lately I found out it has some “anti HIV potential”- online sources.
I took my First HIV test at 5 months 20 days after LAST exposure, Rapid antibody test negative.
I started reading again online, about delayed seroconversion, the herbal supplements with anti HIV potential (I started comparing it with PEP/Early ART affecting antibody results)
So I tested again, Tridot- negative
At 6 months 20 days of exposure.
I am still worried.
Are these tests conclusive? Hope multivitamin and herbal supplements, fish oil won’t affect the results.
I am so worried that I started to think even if I am negative, I would have caught the virus during the blood test (as the nurse was not wearing gloves, put the cotton ball on table, touched me to feel vein after wiping with alcohol swab, what if her finger had virus particle? What if the table on which the cotton was kept has virus?)
I am going mad I think
I will be always grateful!
