3rd Generation ELISA

What should I do?

I had protected sex with a female csw 15 months ago.Condom was intact till the end.Later I found her she is postive.Since that I am suffering from lots of symptoms like swollen lymph nodes in neck,white tongue,loose stool and sometimes shortness of breathing.Recently I noticed significant curving of my nail.I have been suffering from low grade fever for 2 weeks.I've tested negative several times with 3rd generation antibody test 13 weeks rapid test,24 weeks elisa,28 weeks rapid test.Now my questions are.

1.What are the chances of me being seronegative infection infected but did not produce antibody?
2.Are my symptoms typical of HIV infection?
3.Should I go for PCR test?
4.Have you seen any case when beyond the window period someone is antibody negative but detectable in PCR?
5.Was I at risk in the first place?
5.What should I do now?

Blood Might Have Washed Over Penis

I traveled to Manila (in a poor, third world country--the Philippines) on the 9th of January. While there, I hired a sex worker. We had protected sex. However, my condom was a little small, and only covered about 3/4 of my penis. We had sex for a couple of minutes. After a while, i noticed that she was bleeding. I am not sure if it was from the friction, or maybe she was menstruating. We immediately stopped.

I removed the condom carefully. I noticed that I had blood on my crotch area, and my testicles. After a few minutes (about 5 minutes), I washed off the the blood from my crotch and the base of my penis with soap. But later, I realized that was probably stupid, because some of the water might have flowed over to my penis (I am uncircumcised), carrying with it some of the blood to the head of my penis. I began to panic and freak out.

I waited for a while before getting tested. I couldn't wait any longer, and 3 days ago (exactly 35 days (5 weeks) after the incident) I went for an HIV test. I tested non reactive for the enzyme immunochromatography test. (The test results state that "INTEC" was used as the reagent, if that helps)

I am now waiting to retest after 3months. But in the meantime, I am still worried. Could I have been at risk from blood washing over my penis and foreskin with the water I was using to wash?

I regret my actions, and have vowed to be careful in the future.

Please advise.

Sincerely,

-Worried Young Man

I need an expert opinion. Vaginal Fluids

I had a encounter with a prostitute, this encounter i only touched her body with my hands. I touched the breasts and vagina. In the vagina, touched for a few seconds, like a little massage near the clitoris, about 10 seconds, i do not insert any finger into the vigina. Unfortunately I always have small wounds on the fingers, near the fingernails, I bite my nails. Once in the car I remember to be biting my nails. I am afraid of her vaginas fluids, may be infected. I've done two tests, third generation to see HIV1 and HIV2, the two were negative.
Like this encounter was an exception I do not know exactly the day. the first test I did was on 23 November and the second on 18 December, I think that gives me the 12 weeks required ........ These 12 weeks are really safe?
The tests were carried out in Portugal, a certified center for HIV testing, and there were two rapid tests.
I need of your advice please.

ELISA

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.

ELISA "borderline", CMIA positive?

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?

Low risk....

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?
