HOw fast can ELISA detect hiv antibodies...I had an hiv test at kaiser and their website says they use ELISA but It doesnt say which generation....I wonder if they use an older version. By the way I tested negative after 40 days of a risky entounter with a girl ( i am a male). I went to kaiser here in USA. I asked my dr which test it was and all she could tell me was that they did an antibody test...She didnt really answer my question. I wanted to know which generation.
I recently had unprotected oral with a man almost 3 weeks ago, I immediately regretted it afterwards and had him do a HIV test. The results came back as "inconclusive" on ELISA and positive on CMIA. His last sexual encounter was "weeks ago" before me and he tested negative last July.
I've heard that CMIA was more accurate than ELISA and I'm very worried. What are the chances that it was a false positive?
Hi I had a low risk sex. I had HIV ag/ab tests in 2,3,5,8 weeks and normal rapid test in 7 weeks and going again at week 11. Can i trust on my 8 week ag/ab test?
HELLO I AM 35 YEAR OLD MAN FROM INDIAI HAD PHYSICAL RELATION WITH A GIRL FOR THE LAST 3 YEARS. THE LAST ENCOUNTER WAS ON 18/07/15 I AM MENATLLY DISTURBED & THINKING ABOUT HIV INFECTION. I HAVE BEEN TESTED FOR HIV ANTOBODIES TESTS FIRST ON 26/07/15 SECOND ON 09/10/15 & THIRD ON 14/11/15 FOURTH ON 20/11/2015 LAST ON 13/01/2016, (FOUR MONTH MARK & APPROX. 6 MONTH ,MARK) ALL THE TIME THE RESULT IS NON REACTIVE. ALL TETS ARE PERFORMED IN REPUTED GOVT. HOSPITAL. CAN A PERSON TAKE MORE THAN SIX MONTHS TIME TO DETECT HIV ANTI BODIES.SHOULD I NEED FURTHER TESTING OR ANOTHER TYPE OF TEST OR ITS OK.
I AM VERY DISTURBED FOR THE LAST 6 MONTHS. KINDLY HELP ME OUT IN THIS MATTER.
I did a HIV test (ECLIA) after 20 days form probable infection. The test result is NON REACTIVE. Should i do any test after this? If yes what test should i look for.
On December 30th my boyfriend and I tried to have sex. The intercourse was protected, there was no oral/anal action at all. While he had his condom on he failed to achieve full erection, therefore, could not fully penetrate me (only for 10 sec or less). There was no ejaculation either. I did not know his HIV status though he claimed to be a virgin. 3 weeks later I have been experiencing cold like symptoms, low grade fever for a day, fatigue, joint pain and headaches. Are these signs of seroconversion? Should I get tested and what kind of test should I choose now? Antibody or Antigen?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Dear Sir or Madam:
I had unprotected vaginal contact (5 minutes at most, no eyaculation) almost 6 months ago. I had rapid POCT tests done at weeks 8,12,16 and 21 all non-reactive. Standards in Canada, the US and Mexico are 12 weeks for tests to be cocnclusive. Notwithstanding the specific cases of late seroconversion in a healthy 29 year old woman are there any extra concerns for late seroconversion?
Am I just feeling normal anxiety for having been so wreckless?
Thank you so much

I am kurra, bisex. Recently I had sex (anal and oral) with a a guy. After few weeks, the guy told me that he had mouth ulcer, penis ulcer and HIV and syphilis positive. He suspect he getting from me. Hence, I tested for HIV (50 & 55 days after potential exposure and syphilis (55 days after potential exposure). I used rapid test kit (3rd generation antibody test kit with 99.8% sensitivity) and both tests showed negative. However, I am worried because there are few muscles (i don't know lymph nodes or not) swollen on my neck. I need some advice and is the HIV result is conclusive? I know window period is up to 90 days but just for peace of mind I want to know how likely I will get the same results after 90 days?
