HIV/Hep C from Cocaine
« on: April 27, 2014, 11:19:55 am »
I recently got really drunk snorted cocaine for my first time. I am not a drug user and never plan on doing it again. I snorted it with some of my Gay male friends. We did not use straws or bills, but instead we used one of the guys car key. I am very concerned that i may have been infected with HIV/Hep C. It has only been two weeks and I don't have enough money for a RNA test. Any advice, and do you think I should be concerned?

Although the risk is small, I suggest you contact agencies in your area and ask who does free or low-cost testing. Wait for at least 8 - 12 weeks before doing an antibody test - if it is negative, repeat in a couple of months to be sure.
