I am a male, had a protected the vaginal sex with CSW.
But the condom broke , we stopped as soon as we realized.
Not sure how long the exposure was.
This is my only exposure.
I was under tremendous stress & anxiety since then.
I had done the 4th generation DUO test at the lab (in the US at LabCorp) after 6 weeks.
I did another test at the lab (in the US at LabCorp) after 10 weeks & 3 days.
Both the test results came as NonReactive.
Are my results conclusive ?
Should I test again after 12 weeks?
What are the changes of the this result changing from NonReactive between 10th week & 12 week.

75 days(post pep) = antigen - 0.03 ,antigen - 0
120 days(post pep) = antigen -0.03,antigen -not determinable

I had an exposure , due to a broken condom during the vaginal sex with CSW.
I had tested for HIV 4th generation / DUO test after 6 weeks & 10 weeks.
Both the results came as Negative (NonReactive) .
This is my only exposure.
How conclusive are my results?
Can they change between 10th week & 12th week?
Could you please help me with my anxiety.
I had an exposure 6 times on two consective days. Unprotected virginal sex. I took PEP for 28 days which i started within 72hours. I took HIV duo test at 14 weeks 1 day post PEP (18 weeks 2 days post exposure) which came out non reactive (0.02). I also took Hepatitis C rapid antibody test at 122 days post exposure and it was negative. The problem is that i have been having oral thrush for almost 3 months now. Can i rely on my results or should i wait for six months in case of delayed seroconversion? Is my hepatitis C result also conclusive? Am really scared please help. By the way the baseline HIV antibody test for both me and the lady i had sex with was negative but to rule out possibility of window period i took PEP.
Hi i had an exposure(oral recivsex with a girl) in mid december 2018, since then i got tested at 45, 72, 83,111 days past exposure all 4th gen tests in GUM clinic London, However recently i am getting more sore throats than i used to get and i had one episode of ulcers near ulva, are my tests conclusive? I am worried because as child i used to get more episodes of cold which upon googling might be probably because i might have CVID
I have a toddler who keeps putting hands in her mouth, yesterday when i was holding her she touched my mouth when lips are a bit open, probably got saliva on her hands and she kept fingers in her mouth within a minute, now i am feeling bad and worrying , if all i am late seroconverter am i putting my kid at risk?
Hi AIDS Vancouver Staff,
I have some questions that are not getting out of my mind.
I am a gay man, and I am just concerning about something. I was just wondering if H.I.V has any link with Neuropathy.
I am going to tell you a brief description what's going on.
Recently I have experienced some burning,tingling, pins and needles sensation in my legs and feet. I went to my primary Dr. and I was told I have plantar fasciitis.
The doctor put me on this medication for it. It looks like the medication is not doing any good for me. I'd also like to mention I am a "pre diabetic".
I got tested for H.I.V, it came back negative. It has been three months since I had sex for the last time. We just had mutual masturbation, showering together, kissing and some rubbing and came.
Just outta curiosity, I have Googled it, and all I can see there's a link between H.I.V and Neuropathy. At this point I am more worried and anxious than never.
I was just wondering if you are able to clarify my concerns.
I am experiencing some symptoms such as burning sensation in my legs and feet, weight loss, stomach issues, rash, itchy skin, and pimples, red bumps on my neck, groin area and face. I have not experienced any fever.
I’ve been really anxious and worried lately.
Can these symptoms be all related to H.I.V infection or just related to anxiety and stress?
These are the tests I’ve done so far:
-At 54 days - ROUTINE (CENTAUR) 4TH GENERATION HIV ANTIBODY/ANTIGEN TEST “(Negative)”
Can this test be conclusive at 54 days?
I am currently on PreP. I started it couple months ago.
I got a 4th Generation Test (Blood drawn at Lab) after 30 days (follow up) and it came back negative.
Does PreP suppress or hide the virus in an H.I.V (4th Generation) Test while taking Prep daily?
Is there any link between H.I.V and Neuropathy Please help!
I have all these stuck on my mind, and I can't get over of it. The more I think, more anxious and worried I get. These past three months have been so overwhelming.
I had an exposure and took PEP for 28 days which i started within 72 hours. I did the following tests which all came back non reactive:
1) At 105 days post exposure (76 days post pep) 3rd Generation HIV Elisa Antibody test which was non reactive.
2) At 119 days post exposure (90 days post pep) Determine HIV Antibody test which was still non reactive.
3) At 122 days post exposure-Hepatitis C rapid test which came back non reactive as well. Can i consider my results conclusive since the guidelines state that delayed seroconversion only occurred in people who acquired Hepatitis C together with the HIV virus. Please respond and this will be the last time am asking.
Hi, first of all thank you for providing all the information.
7 weeks ago I received unprotected oral from a female. We also kissed and did a mutual masturbation. No vaginal or anal sex.
12 days after encounter I had a fever for about 48 hours and blood discharge from my belly button(also for 2 days). On day 14 I was really anxious about being infected so I went to do a HIV test in clinic. It was a ECLIA antibody test. Result was negative. My fever that day also disappeared and I slept so well. On day 15 I woke up in middle of the night with a sweat on my neck and forehead. I had a weird dream about HIV so I think it was because of this.
Then after 5 weeks (day 35) I went to test again.
This time I tested with Architect HIV 1,2 Ag/Ab test. Result was negative as well. Doctor told me that because I had a "negligible risk" encounter I don't have to test again.
My question is:
The doctor told me that, if the symptoms that I experienced would be because of the HIV infection, I would already test positive because my body already would fight with the virus. Is that true ?
Should I test one more time at 8 weeks with Ag/Ab test or should I test later when I will go for a regular testing (I test every 6 months).
Thanks for answering.
Thanks a lot team for the work you people are doing.
I had a sex with CSW . She looked healthy . While having sex the condom got punctured and she was the one who said the condom is broken . So then we changed the punctured condom and After we were done everything was ok . But after 3-4 days when I was masturbating i felt the slight pain on my penis and with in next 2-3 days I got some white substance coming out of Penis and I felt burning sensation while Peeing . So the next day I went to the Doc . HE gave me Disodium Hydrogen Citrate syrup for UTI and Fluconazole 200 Mg tab and Eberconazole 1% for Fungal Infection he diagnosed . He also asked about if I had any Sexual contact and I said yes. He was ok with it .
After 5 days there was a much of improvement . But yeast was still seen at my Penis . So I thought to change the doctor . My new doctor said that I am suffering from Balanoposthitis and he changed my pills and said me to come after 4 weeks with test of HIV . I am very scared and I don,t know what to do . I have read alot about the symptoms of HIV on net . I am in my 3rd week of the sexual exposure . And i feel like I have been suffering from symptoms like Sweating in Palms and in body at night and 3-4 rashes on my body including two on my hand and there is alot of back ache rest I dont see any other symptoms . Please help me I am very depressed
Thanks in Advance
I had an exposure of penis head entering twice in my anus for just 10-20 seconds. No ejaculation, just pre-cum.
I got scared and was on PEP for 30 days. I got tested today exactly at 6 weeks or 42 days post pep with 2 HIV tests, one was Rapid uni-gold HIV test and rapid Alere Determine Ag/Ab 4th generation HIV test at the same clinic. both came out negative at 6 weeks post pep. I was wondering will this testing shows that i am negative and what are my chances at 3 month testing ? I know post pep guideline says 3 months testing. i was just nervous and got tested at 6 weeks. And do i also need a 6 months test ? Thanks
