Is ELISA test enough within 3 weeks after exposure?

Hi, I'm not sure whether I have HIV or not. To be brief, I observed diarrhea, muscular pain for couple of days after 15 days of having intercourse. Have also had CBC/HBV/HCV/FBS and lipid profiling along with the ELISA test and all the results are normal. ELISA test also showed non reactive results. It has been only 3 weeks since the intercourse (protected) and the individual claims of being HIV negative. However I might be feeling a bit different as this was the first experience. There are no mouth/ tongue sores. I workout almost everyday. But somehow there's question if I am infected or not. Could you guide what would be the earliest way to detect HIV?

N**** F****

I have Unprotected sex two months ago and at next day night I have experienced a strong itchy rash in my body with redness in the back of my neck, upper-chest, waist, arms and my legs for a week (I felt like if I am infected with scabies), kindly note that I did not have sex since then, and my Job did a periodic medical test for me including HIV test exactly after 20 days from the exposure. kindly answer my following question I'm really feel bad.

Is this kind of itchy rash considered as HIV early symptoms?
Is the test result considered definitive after 20 days? and does it gives an indication that I am not infected at all?
Does the presence of semen in my clothes can transmit the infection to those who wash it?
Do the kissing of my children and hugging them when I'm sweaty may infect them in any way?
What exactly the test should I do after two months?

I COME FROM A COUNTRY WHERE PRE MARITAL HIV SCREENING IS A MUST. IN 2014 NOVEMBER MY HUSBAND AND I DID PRE MARITAL HIV TESTING. WE ONLY DID THE FINGER PRICK TEST. WE GOT MARRIED. HE WAS NEGATIVE. HOWEVER 7 MONTHS LATER HE HAD LOT OF WEIGHT LOSS AND WAS NOT WELL. WE WENT TO HOSPITAL AND WAS SAD TO FIND OUT HE IS HIV POSITIVE. THE DOCTOR SAID HE HAD AIDS. IS IT POSSIBLE FOR HIS TEST TO BE NEGATIVE WHEN ONLY MONTHS LATER HE IS HAVING AIDS.

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.

HIV TEST

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
