Hi there I am just wondering that when getting a test done hiv if you have to tell the doctor the type of sex you had. For example is there a different test for unprotected anal vs unprotected vaginal sex or is just the standard blood test for all sexual acts. Do I have to tell the doctor what I engaged in or can I just be confident in requesting a test and not worry about giving full details to the doctor.
hi, I need help. 9 weeks ago I had a relationship risk on bleeding during sex. At 63 days (9 weeks) I do an HIV test 1 & 2 (antibody and p24antigen) by chemiluminescence fourth generation by extraction of blood of my vein. It is my result conclusive? This is better than a elisa or is the same?
I had protected vaginal sex and unprotected oral sex(licked vagina) with a female sex worker in 2012 July
I fell really sick after that for two weeks
Headache, weakness, nausea ect
At that time I tested for hiv with Hiv 1/2 antibodies with p24 test and it came back with a result of 0.66
Since then I have been falling sick regularly with symptoms such as stiff neck, nausea and accute weakness, sore eyes ect
I have tested multiple times in last two years for hiv with antibodies plus p24 test
All of them came back negative with values such as 0.08,0.05,0.12 ect
Please tell me is there a risk for hiv infection?
Will antibodies be present for life?
Why was the reading so high first time?
Should I keep on testing?
Is this antibodies test sensitive enough?
Are my tests conclusive?
should I test with rna test?
Please help me to clear my query. I had unprotected sex who HIV status is unknown. But, I suspect, she is HIV positive. My last exposure 8th December, 2015. I first tested WB testing on 12th April, 2016; the result was INDETERMINATE NEGATIVE (Bands present, but pattern does not meet criteria for POSITIVE). This put me in more worry. I then tested ELISA testing on 27th April, 2016; result was NEGATIVE.
What should I consider now? I am suffering from excessive flatulence and gassing. I get my nose block during bed time, at night. I have other unusual problems that I had never experienced and suffered in my life, earlier. Please help.
I tested positive with ELFA at 5 weeks post risky exposure, however i tested non reactive with sd bioline 1/2 rapid test at 5 weeks as well. I need to wait two weeks for western blot, what are the chances I am really positive?
i had an sexual intercourse with a call girl in thailand on last week of (30april2016). i had a protected sex but my condom became little loose later so i am not sure of protection. since then i am afraid of infection. i face some symptom on hiv like tired, dry mouth, loss of appetite, diahorrea, rashes.so by then i did some tests 30days after sex (30may2016). hiv anitbodies test result came was non-reactive . dna pcr test also i had taken results have not come still. can u please tell me that whether i am in safe state or have any other test to detect the hiv much earlier. some people say i have to wait for 3 to 6 months. i am confused. please help me.
I had a possible exposure to hiv last April 8, 2016. and on may 2 and 8 i had this test including the rpr, tp-pa and HBsAg both came non-reactive.
Can I breathe easy now?

I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend for many months starting in november of 2015 which is where we lost our virginities to eachother (we are each others only partners; we both havent had sex with anyone else). during Mid march I became sick and looked up my symptoms and they matched up to the symptoms of HIV. I took both and oral swab test as well as a blood rapid test during the month of april both came out to be negative... are those tests conclusive or should i take another one? they were both taken around the 5 month mark but im still not sure if it was too early to tell. also if those symptoms were infact HIV symptoms then shouldn't my tests have come out positive? I am currently very anxious about all of this and I want to know if I should still be this apprehensive about it or should I just calm down and relax? thank you
I am from Romania, at 3 months (12 weeks) I've made a Hiv Test Elisa Ser 1+2 and come back negative (I don't know the test generation but on the note is Test Hiv Elisa Ser 1+2). It is conclusive because I'm very very stressed and anxious, I want to kill myself...please reply as soon as possible..... In my country they insist at 6 months....why?
I had risky sex[oral sex only] activity 9 weeks ago. At 30 days (4 weeks and 2days ) and 50 days(7 weeks and 1 day), I took a ELISA HIV test in China and it came out negative[I never take drugs].
The WHO Web site display : Window period :This is the time between original infection with HIV and the appearance of Detectable antibodies to the virus, normally a period of about 14-21 days.[ WHO:http://www.who.int/diagnostics_laboratory/faq/window_period/en/] ,Can I rule out HIV? I need to test after 12 weeks or not?
