Good morning I read many answers in HIV HELP LINE however one of your volunteers has given inconsistent and erroneous answers that are consistent with the responses of the other volunteers. While everyone indicates that the window period is 12 weeks (84 days) Mr. Trevor indicates that they are 90 and he has answered many that if they have taken the test at 84 they should do it again after 90 days. He also replied that the elisa of 4 generation is not a duo test. So, the question is because someone from your volunteer community called "Trevor" responds differently to all the rest ????
I had unprotected sex with a sex worker.after 4 days I was placed on 30 days PEP (Yes, I know it is late). I completed the 30 days and 4 weeks post PEP (8.5 weeks post exposure) I had 2 Rapid finger prick tests. Both came back Negative.
1. I was wondering if PEP has any chance at working after 3 days ?
2. What are the chances of it interfering with an antibody test at 8 weeks post exposure ?
Thanks for your time
my last intercourse with a thailand commercial sex worker was on 11.01.2019
i got the following test
HIV1 & 2 ANTIBODIES SCREENING TEST SERUM FROM LAL PATH LABS NEGATIVE
HIV 1 & 2 ANTIBODIES SCREENING TEST SERUM FROM LAL PATH LABS NEGATIVE
HIV 1 & 2 ANTIBODIES AND P24 ANTIGEN TEST FROM LAL PATH LABS 0.14 NON REACTIVE
my question is that can a man take more than 3 MONTHS to produce hiv antibodies
do i need further testing or its sufficient
Thanks for helping millions of people with your response .I had done HIV DUO combo test ( Vidas Duo Ultra ) after pep usage. The results are
30 days(post pep) = antibody-0.03,antigen-0
60 days(post pep) = antibody- 0.05, antigen -not determinable
75 days(post pep) = antigen - 0.03 ,antigen - 0
120 days(post pep) = antigen -0.03,antigen -not determinable
what is my hiv status .Do i need to do any test further .Kindly answer I am nervous about it.
I had an exposure and took PEP for 28 days which i started within 72 hours. I did the following tests which all came back non reactive:
1) At 105 days post exposure (76 days post pep) 3rd Generation HIV Elisa Antibody test which was non reactive.
2) At 119 days post exposure (90 days post pep) Determine HIV Antibody test which was still non reactive.
3) At 122 days post exposure-Hepatitis C rapid test which came back non reactive as well. Can i consider my results conclusive since the guidelines state that delayed seroconversion only occurred in people who acquired Hepatitis C together with the HIV virus. Please respond and this will be the last time am asking.
thanks for your good site and your helps.
sorry for my poor english.

Thank you for your services.I have been working as a doctor in Germany for two months. During my pre-hospital screening test, my blood test was positive for HIV. Nine years ago, I had a similar incident in India where a screening test was positive. My doctor advised me to do a Western blot, P24 antigen and DNA PCR test, all of which were negative. I did not have any exposure.One year later, I got married and was tested every two years and was always negative. I gave birth to a healthy boy two years ago. The regular maternity checks for HIV were also negative. I am only sexually active with my husband. Is there a chance that this current test in Germany could be a false positive? How accurate are these tests in Germany for occupational medicine examination. What do I have to do now? Why would such an incident happen to me twice? I would really appreciate a feedback.
I had a encounter of mutual masturbation, where I fingered the lady and then masturbated self with Vaginal Fluid on my fingers and that fluid may have came in contact with my Penis.
I had SERUM HIV(I & II)AG/AB( Combo) Test with Method : Chemiluminescent Immunoassay on day 15th and Day 29th and both the results are as under:
15th Day: 0.24 S/Co : Non Reactive
29th Day: 0.11 S/Co : Non Reactive
1. Can I Conclude that I am not infected on the basis of the Test results?
2. Is the above mentioned test 4th generation?
3. If I need to take the same test for a conclusive result, when should I take it again?
Thanks in advance for your knowledge sharing and support.
after expojer 93 days antigen and antibody test negative 103 daysafter screening test negative pls tell me i am safe yes/no or other test
I had sex with someone on Dec 20 and the condom broke in between. I only realized after finishing. I started PEP in less than 48 hours and took it for 30 days. I tested at 42 days after exposure (11 days after PEP completion) the test was negative. The test I used was HIV CMIA (p24 and Antibody). I took another test (HIV CMIA serum) at 60 days after exposure (29 days after PEP completion) which was also negative
My question is this:
1. Are these test results encouraging?
2. I am planning to take another test at 42 days after PEP completion (74 days after exposure). Have you ever seen post pep test at 28 days turn positive in the future?
I have read on the Internet that HIV 4th gen test are conclusive at 6 weeks by expert. So if my test at 74 days (10 weeks and 4 days after exposure or 42 days after PEP completion) is negative. Can I consider this conclusive?
