Late seroconversion (after 5 months)

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

HIV test on 50 & 55 days

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?

may i know what chance i catch HIV from this point?


I had a vaginal sex with a sex worker and While having sex, She realized that condom slipped off. She appeared really calm and used her fingers to get the condom out of her vagina. Since then I have had the most difficult 80 days of my life from then until today. I am very scared and haven't been able to function, can´t sleep, the anxiety is taking my life away, I think about that all the time. Due to all the different information I have been reading I do not know what to believe. Strange bodily occurrences have been happening to me, one thing after the other (specially swollen gums which is really annoying). I have taken meticulous notes on my physical condition and have now seeked out your forum with hope that one of your experts could analyze these occurrences and give me their honest point of view on the situation. I took an Elisa test after 46 days after and it came out negative.
I ask you to first assess my risk. I am un-circumcised, It was vaginal sex just for a couple of second? How are the possibilities the seroconverting after this test?
Thank you in advance for your answers.

Oral sex and bleeding gums


About 4 weeks ago I had unprotected oral sex with a person whose hiv status I don't know, exactly one week after possible exposure I got flu, strong productive cough, mild fever, problems breathing - shortness of breath (my doctor said that this is because of my asthma). doctor gave me antibiotic which didn't help at all, and for 3 weeks already I have runny nose, peristant cough, last week I felt fatigue. It seems though I'm getting better, and my doctor said it is probably common cold virus, but I worry because it lasts for quite a time. I was checking symptoms online and I don't have swollen lymph nodes, and also no rash.
As I have mentioned one week before the flu-like symptoms appeared I had unprotected oral sex, with some deep kissing involved also. I gave oral sex to partner and he also gave one to me. No ejacualtion happened in mouth though, but I worry about possible pre-cum maybe. The thing is that I usually have bleeding gums while brushing teeth, and that's why I worry the most. I brushed my teeth at least couple hours before contact last time. There was also some alcohol in my bloodstream.

Considering that this happened just 4 weeks ago I think it might be too early to get tested, I don't know what generation tests they use in my country (I live in Poland)

Should I really worry about the hiv possibility, and do these symptoms look like hiv? What do you think about testing during this week (it would be 4 and half weeks after possible exposure).

Thank you so much for your answer, I appreciate it very much.
Kind regards,

Test after acute phase

if symptoms of acute phase appears in the sixth week after exposure risk and be performs a fourth generation test in the seventh week and a third-generation in the eighth week. can they come non reactive? I read that after the acute phase, the testing return non reactive.

which opinion about it!

thank you!
