I had a protected encounter in the last week of January. I am feeling extremely nervous if I could have been exposed since hands were also involved. Is it possible to get infected through unbroken skin ?
I do want to get tested to be at peace in my mind. Is the minimum time post encounter 3 months ? Or is there any way to get tested prior to that too ?
What are the places which administer an anonymous test ?
I am planning to perform HIV screening after potential incident(oral sex) at 5 weeks.
I am planning to perform antigen (ICMA,Western-blot) test however if i am in window period this test may come negative so in addition to this test i am also planning to perform either HIV Pooled Nucleic Acid Test or RNA Quantitative, Real-time PCR.
Please advice which test should i take in addition to antigen test for near conclusive results. Please let me know difference between these two Pooled NAAT vs RNA Real-Time PCR test.
I have psoriasis which being auto-immune disorder, can it affect any of the test results?

I don't mean to repeat this same question again as I know you had replied to someone and also provided with a number to get accurate information. 1-800-668-2437 The hotline do tell me that the 4th generation test is available in labs, and asked me to get further information from clinics. ( They're refering to the Hassel Free Clinic.) However, the clinic hardly answered my question about the 4 generation test, they even told me rapid testing they are always doing is the 4 generation. Frome my knowledg it's not likely what they said is right. I have also called other clinics that do not even know what the meaning of 4th generation lab test. I respect their professional knowledge, can you make a call to the clinic so as to find out if any 4 generation testing truly available in Toronto, please? The number is 416-922-0566. Sorry for bothering. Thank you so much!!

After 48 days, a negative ELISA.
What is my risk that
Do I need to take another test?
In short, I was exposed to vaginal secretions for roughly 5 seconds before putting on a condom. So I decided to take a HIV test. I'm pretty confused at the moment. I had a HIV test at week 16 through LifeLabs which came back negative. As I was reading the archives on this site, some of the moderators are suggestion a Western Blot to be 100% sure I'm not HIV +.
According to CPHA, Western Blot is only used as a confirmation test if the ELISA test came back reactive. So can I consider myself HIV negative or?
Also, as recommended by the site, I was also screened for the more common STD's which all came back negative. Thanks in advance.
still aving symptoms after 15 months and 4 hiv tests mouth problems and oral thrush my mouth is driving me crazy can it really be hiv and tests not picking the infection up
first of all here is my risk...
i had sex with a sex worker the oral was without condom,she licked my balls also my anal part. and i used condom for verginal sex....in next round again oral was unprotected, and i used condom for anal..i only inserted my penis in her *** for a min, i did not discharge, i pulled it out and change the condom...i put new condom on for verginal sex, i again didnot dischange, then she took the condom off and she dischaged me by giving oral and hand job....
now my sysmtoms..
a week after this, i started having flue like symptoms,,,almost 9 dayz after i started feeling sick, extreme diearea and vomiting..... then few weeks later i have a sour throat, few red tiny dots kind pimples on my stomach that hurt. i m getting stiff neck and pain in throat....
i read on the internet the condom are not always 100% for hiv, is it true,,,i used a lubricated condom which was not expired,
also can hiv trasmit thoguh oral, i recevied oral withour condom....
