Our expert says:
The test can't harm you, it can only inform you and give you more power to look after yourself better than perhaps you did in the past. The fact that your pregnant girl friend has twice tested negative is really good news, for her and the baby ; it may increase the chances that you are also negative, but it is also posssible that you may be positive. Only testing can give you a usefully sure answer. If you prove negative, yo can by now being very careful try to remain negative, and of course that'd be good news. IF you test positive, and the result is confirmed, there should be counselling available to help you decide how best to deal with this, both to promote your own health, and also to protect your girlfriend and child. Remaining unsure and scared won't help any of you and will leave you more uncomfortable for longer. We can't plan how to properly deal with a situation until we know what it actually is.
