In 2013, i did unprotected vaginal sex with a commercial sex worker.
After three months i got sick for 21 days it was all unexplained.
After 6 months, i got gastritis and still have it.
in Jan 2014 i got phyrengitis and still have it.
in 2015 i got facial parotid burning and still have it.
in Dec 2015 i got ear blockage problem and still have it
in 2016 my back got sensitive to air , its a burning kind of sensation and still have it and later in the same year i got chest pain issue and still have it, its one of my very bad symptoms which has disturbed my whole life.
in 2017 i used to get the cervical pain, when doctors did MRI, they showed something called up cervical lymphadenopathy and still have it..
i have had no other exposure after this incident other than my wife.
so all my issues i mentoined above phyrengitis, ear blockage, parotid heaviness and parotid burning, back burning, chest pain and cervical lymphadenopathy .. they all still persists and have disturbed the quality of my life.. specially my chest pain, cervical lymphadenopathy and parotid burning.
I did test for HIV via 4th gen Eclia test in 2013 - 3 months post exposure negative.
again HIV test via 4th gen Eclia test in 2013 - 8 month post exposure negative.
Tested 16 months in 2014 via Ehanced Chemlum - negative
Tested at somewhere in 2015 via Elisa - negative, my test range was 0.2453 , cutoff value 1.
in 2014 i got married and my wife has become so weak ever since after marrying me, she got the nails problem and After a year to our married she got measles and now she has got the kidney problem.
i have developed so many neurological problems now.. i swear i never used to go to the doctor or never got that much of sick and now whatever is problem is diagnosed, its becoming permanent ... doctors are unable to resolve. i never told my doctors about my HIV exposure to confuse them.
do i need any other test? to be honest i am so much afraid to go for the testing now..
I had an exposure due to broken condom in Feb-2019.
I was tested several times negative - 1 week, 6 weeks, 10 weeks & 13 weeks after the exposure.
The test was 4th generation Duo test in the lab.
I have symptoms such as persistent sore throat , neck pain & burning sensation in the skin.
I never had these symptoms before the exposure.
No fever , my weight is stable.
Whenever, I get a symptom, my mind goes straight to HIV.
Should I still be concerned with HIV ?
Hello. I am male. I received oral sex from a guy who is HIV positive. It last no more than 30 seconds. That was all. I waited 40 days and then I did test 4 generation Ab/Ag. It was negative. I read that after 6 weeks negative result is conclusive. Should I test again after 12 weeks?
I had a handjob 17 weeks ago from someone and I didn't know her status. I touched her vagina and immediately touched my penis, sucked her nipples/
I had multiple RNA and 4th gen tests out of anxiety and all were negative. I am having lot of symptoms since my exposure like pain in armpits be hindears in the thighs. Is there a chance that I got infected with all my negative results?
Is there chance for the virus levels to be very low to be detected by these tests at 16 weeks

Hello doctor ,
i had done hiv duo combo test on 13th day,27th day ,48th day and 103rd day on a same lab .All the results are non reactive .whether my tests are conclusive or i need to test again after 6months ...pls tell ?
I had high risk exposure. I had sex with a women who hiv status is unknown on July 4 2019 I used a condom but it broke as soon as I realized I stopped. On august 10 2019 I(5 weeks) I got 4th gen test result was negative . Today October 1st(89 days from possible exposure) I went and got a alere determine Hiv-1/2 ag/ab combo finger prick. Also negative. My question is should I re test or can I be sure that I'm completely clean?
I had an exposure 115 days (16.5 weeks) ago ( protected sex at a massage parlor, un covered blow job and pussy licking). NO PEP
I had a HIV 4th gen and HIV RNA test ( both at Loabcorp and Quest) on week 6, 12 and 15. All were Non reactive(for 4th gen) and NON detectable(for RNA). Can I 100% consider conclusive HIV negative with my week 15 test( 105 days after exposure). I read some threads about 2nd hiv window period and late seroconverstion in some people. Would those people also be conclusive by week-15. Also on some websites it still says they recommend another test on 6month mark, is completely outdated info.
is there any possibility or scenario for antibodies and antigens to stay at a very low un detectable level for the 4th gen and RNA tests on week-15
I wanted to make sure that am 100% safe with my 3 neagtive results and can safely move on with my normal life and sexual activities.
On morning, I used my friend's used shaving stick for my armpits, there were no visible blood on the blade and I didn't cut my self because I didn't feel like I did. Few weeks later I got to know she's positive and have been on drugs since 2018, my mind went back to that shaving scenario and I test for HIV 1&2 negative, 47 days later I did the p24+ antibody test for HIV 1&2 and it was nonreactive, spoken with some doctors and they said I have less than 1% of being infected this way.
I have been very worried and read that the virus dies once it comes in contact with air. Please help
Thank you for answer my question:
I had Protected sex with someone of unknown status, I believed i was very careful due to my fair of HIV. Two weeks after i noticed my lymph node on my neck swollen, mildly swollen confirmed with Ultrasound, CT, Biopsy.
I went to the clinic at received Fingerstick:
Day 17 Alere Determine™ HIV-1/2 Ag/Ab Combo - non-reactive
Day 44 Alere Determine™ HIV-1/2 Ag/Ab Combo - non-reactive
Day 60 Alere Determine™ HIV-1/2 Ag/Ab Combo - non-reactive
I understand window period, but what is the likelyhood that im positive at receiving a 8 week 4 days Negative?
Thank you for you timely response.
