I recently sero converted and am now hiv+. I'm in my late 40's and after being vigilantly hiv- am so dissappointed with myself. How did this happen? Hubris? bug chasing? unfortunately, i think i got it from a 20 yr old guy i had been dating and i knew in jan 09' i tested negative, so iwas topping him, taking a 'calculated' risk. seeing each other 2-3 x per week. I also ran out of my regular lubricant 'ero's' and started using Virgin coconut oil which irritated my urethra.(any probably his ass). I tested hiv positive dec 09'. i just pray i didn't and don't infect anyone else. i had to do partner notification with this beautiful 20 yr old young man. it was very difficult. A real game changer.
