3rd Generation ELISA

oral sex only

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?

Worried of HIV

I have been exposed to a protected vaginal sex 66 days a go. I did a ELISA HIV 1 & 2 test at 61 days and it shows 0.06 along with full checkup for Habitats B and C, ECG, lever, Heart. etc and all gave negative with less than 0.1 results.

the only thing wrong was slightly high SGPT at 53

Do I need to worry ?

I have a sore through for 7 days now, and I had a diarrhea for 2 days with no other symptoms.

Elise positive (1.3), rapid antigen test (negative), Western Blot ( Negative)

HI, I had oral sex 9 yr's before. After that I never had any sex or needle exposure. I'm having UTI symptoms since last 5 years, while each time my urine culture come negative (undocumented). Recently, I have HIV Elise test, which come out reactive (1.3), while cut-out was 1.0. I was so depressed and worried, that how come this happened to me after 9 yr's, though I have no HIV symptoms. I got tested for rapid antigen and western blot, Both come (Negative). I'm still worried, do I still have chances to get HIV? Do I need any further test? Why was my antibody count exceed so much that it marked me HIV infectious in ELise test? Does that mean I have HIV virus present in mu body ? I'm getting married and very nervous, Please help me.

Fingering with a 1 day old cut, 20 seconds oral sex

long story short, after a couple of french kisses, I proceed to finger her with a slight cut that burned slightly and them some oral sex which only featured one or two licks, then attempted to insert my penis (not hard) in her briefly and failed then she attempted oral sex on me but gave up after me not getting hard..
I suffered from a dry sore throat 2 weeks in and a one day long fever. No other symptoms arise so far besides bad breath which I remember having the day of the infection because I asked for tooth paste and a slight white tongue which a doctor denied being oral thrush.. also one painful gland under the chin which didn't hurt until I checked for swollen glands about 25 times.
I had bloodwork done for antibodies and antigens done 3 weeks in after the day of risk, and then I preformed an oral swab test a couple days later (both returned negative), her on the other hand had a HIV test 2 month prior and another oral swab one when I did.. They both returned negative which scares me even more because acute infections carry the most virus..
Am I at risk of anything or am I being delusional?

Antibody test after 21 week is conclusive

what is the approximate widow period range for determine,statpak and uni-gold strips in detection of HIV

6 week negative HIV test.

24M bisexual here. In a commited relationship with a female..
Anyways, on Mar 16th I made the biggest mistake of my life and hooked up with another male I met on a hookup site. He told me he was clean, and negative. I topped. The sex lasted about 3 minutes and I pulled out. About a week later I had what I believe was an HPV outbreak (my first) and thats when I started to get concerned.

I got my first HIV antibody test done at 20 days : Results were negative.
I started reading about the window period, and decided to get an antibody/antigen combo test done at 6 weeks (44 days post exposure) and the result to that test was negative also.

At this point, I was feeling pretty comforted with the negative results. But then my significant other started showing signs of ARS, 2 weeks to the day after the last time we had intercourse. She's having night sweats, diarrhea, slight fever.

What are the risks of me catching HIV as a top from a one time exposure? and what are the chances that my 6 week negative HIV test will actually turn positive at the 3 month mark?

I'm terrified that not only I am sick, but my significant other to.

Clearview Complete Test at 15 weeks

Recently I have been extremely concerned about my HIV testing, especially since I have/am experiencing a few symptoms. I am a nineteen year old female and my possible exposure was on November 1st of 2015 with a male through vaginal intercourse. I unfortunately did not know his status. While were were having sex, at some point the condom broke. I do not remember the details, (I was somewhat intoxicated and this was quite a while ago) but I fear that he did not realize the condom had broken until after he had finished. I then performed oral sex on him (I know that is low risk but I am just trying to be as specific as I can be). I then saw him about a week and a half later on Nov. 11 and we had protected sex and I performed oral again (unprotected). After this (2 weeks) I went to the Women's Clinic at my university and tested negative for chlamydia and gonorrhea. At this point I was not experiencing any symptoms of ARS (at least I don't remember any). A little less than two months later I got a deep cough and sore throat after a late night out in the cold. The sore throat went away in a day but the cough has been on and off ever since, sometimes with phlegm, sometimes without. I then started to think about HIV. At 81 days after the unprotected sex and about 10 weeks after the protected, I tested negative with an Oraquick Home Rapid Test. I might add that I was extremely careful with following the instructions. This test provided me with some relief, but a couple of weeks later (13 weeks past possible exposure) I got a cold. The cough was worse and with congestion in my head/nose and a sore throat. The doctor said my lymph nodes in my neck were a bit swollen but not too bad, no fever or anything. She have me some cold medicine and it cleared up in a week, but the cough still lingers on and off today. Because of the cold, I decided to test again with Oraquick (seeing that the first test was not past 12 weeks since exposure). At exactly 14 weeks since the most recent possible exposure (the protected sex and unprotected oral on Nov. 11th) I tested negative with Oraquick. Being me, I was still extremely freaked out as I dwelled on the experiences and scheduled a test at my clinic. On February 23rd (16+ weeks post the high risk unprotected sex and 15 weeks since the lower oral risk) I was tested with a Clearview Complete rapid antibody HIV 1/2 Test, which I think is a 2nd Gen. test. The result came back nonreactive. Despite these few tests I cannot shake the idea that I could be HIV positive, especially since I am still experiencing the cough with a few other symptoms like occasional headaches, congestion and some mild joint pain. I have been to the doctor several times since and she has told me not to worry too much, seeing that it is most likely due to allergies and the weather here, but nothing really seems to work. I have even expressed my fear of HIV to her. My main fear is that I have/am seroconverting late so my tests would not have picked up antibodies. I know that some say the window period is 3 months, but I have also read i that you cannot be sure you are negative until after a 6 month test, especially after you had a high risk event like mine, or if your "medical history is incompatible with the tests". I really do not understand that last statement, does it mean that since I still have symptoms I should test again? I'll add that I have not had any health issues in the past so I really do not know why I would be a late seroconverter, nor am I on any serious meds. Since the experiences I have not engaged in any high risk actives, out of fear that I will infect someone I care about. Also, I really do not know much about the Clearview Complete test, just that it is only a second gen. test. Which makes me worry if it is as updated/popular/recommend as other tests. I am getting a 6 month test (Clearview) on Tuesday, but am terrified! Is there a large likelihood that I will be positive? Are these rapid antibody tests that I have been taking any less reliable then a blood test? Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to my worries, it is extremely appreciated!
