HIV transmission through nasal endoscopy

Hi, I went for a check-up on 2/19/16 and the doctor used a rigid nasal endoscope on me to exam up my nose. I remember seeing the flexible scope sitting in a blue water and the other one (which he used on me) was sitting in a tube without water. I saw him take the scope not in the water, wipe it down with a tissue and then examine me. After using it on me, he then put it in the water.

I assumed it was clean before he used it on me, but now I have a low-grade fever and dry throat. I am wondering if it wasn't clean and if anything was transmitted to me. I pray nothing was, but because of my fever I am worried.

I will get myself tested but am very, very worried since I have symptoms of fever. Is it too soon to get test this week?

HIV risk

I am very scared. My gf cheated on me. she was hiv negative but she had sex with someone of unknown hiv status and then we had sex with me after 12 days. My condom beak. what are my chances of hiv from this as she has a exposure 12 days ago with someone else and i had sex with her. Can i get hiv if i had sex with her after she exposed to the virus?

normal HIV test range ?

i have taken an Elisa test and the result was 0.110 . is it negative ? what is the normal range >?


Hi there.

i have a question and i would really appreciate if i get the answer.

i did combo test with 30 days after exposure and another elisa test on 10 weeks (about 70 days but i don't know whether its combo or not but they told me it takes one hour go and come within one hour, any how the most important issue that i took a doxycycline after 10 days of exposure because i got chlamedia, i took the medicine for 29 days and i took nasacort medicine its a nasalize spray and it contains cortisone, i am taking it twice daily two shot in every hole and approximately within one week and a half before the first test till today, could this medicines affect my tests and increases the period of 3 months , and please as an expert side please give me your opinion on my tests and am i infected or not? specially after 80 days of exposure and i still have some symptoms.

thank you very much

urrrrgentttt help required

hi i had sex with a female and after 6 week i tested and the test was negative and after that she had typhoid fever and after that i again been with her and now i am scared that i am affected she has lot of bf which i came to know now and i did i not cum inside her if you suggest me to take the test what test should i take when to take and if i am affected should i be on medication for whole life even if i am getting test very soon may be by 10 week. if i have multiple partner and all are hiv- then is there a chance of getting exposed pls clarify as soon am really scared?

Totally confused by the internet

I had a high risk exposure(unprotected vaginal) 76 days ago. I went for 5 test Ag/Ab up until 9 weeks(63 days). I also did a 3rd gen antibody test on day 73(10.5 weeks). All test have come back negative. Still seem to be experiencing symptoms( Flu,Malaise and mouth sores and sore throat) on and off for 7 weeks

My questions are;
(1) Can ARS occur this late ?
(2) Can ARS occur over a period of 7 weeks ?
(3) Could Seroconversion have occured earlier(say at 2-4 weeks post exposure) and still be undetectable at week 10.5 ?
(4)Could symptoms be related to anxiety instead ? Hiv infection has practically been at the forefront of my mind these past 10 weeks.

Thank you for doing what you do. Im sure everyone looking for advice appreciates it !

follow-up query re: initial Q with title educated information

The information provided by the Aids Vancouver helpline through volunteer Christina was very informative and helpful. Somehow it it gave me peace of mind. Yes, I would still go for a test, just to be clinically conclusive about it. I am planning to have the test after 30 days, just to be sure that it is included in 21-25 days window period. And then I would have another on the 3rd month. In light, what tests would you recommend me to have? Does this 4th generation test cover not only HIV screening but also for other STIs? If not, what test should I seek? Another is what type of doctor should I visit for these tests?
