... Hi I'm a 25 yr old bisexual male and I had never tested myself for HIV infection. Last October 5, i slept with a sex worker. I don't know if he inserted my penis in his anus, but he said he just put it between his thighs. I honestly don't know how anal sex feels like because I have never tried it.

... another thing about seroconverting. I ended up getting the flu at what was about 5 weeks after my exposure. Pretty much scared the bajebus out of me, but it turned out to just be a coincidence because I tested negative at 10 months. Don't stress out about symptoms! Sometimes a sickness is just a sickness.

If I am still seroconverting, my test wouldn't show up on the antibody test, right?
