Hiv CMIA test negative 29 days after PEP completion

Hi,

I had sex with someone on Dec 20 and the condom broke in between. I only realized after finishing. I started PEP in less than 48 hours and took it for 30 days. I tested at 42 days after exposure (11 days after PEP completion) the test was negative. The test I used was HIV CMIA (p24 and Antibody). I took another test (HIV CMIA serum) at 60 days after exposure (29 days after PEP completion) which was also negative

My question is this:

1. Are these test results encouraging?
2. I am planning to take another test at 42 days after PEP completion (74 days after exposure). Have you ever seen post pep test at 28 days turn positive in the future?

I have read on the Internet that HIV 4th gen test are conclusive at 6 weeks by expert. So if my test at 74 days (10 weeks and 4 days after exposure or 42 days after PEP completion) is negative. Can I consider this conclusive?

Risk of Getting HIV

On 31st Jan I met with a lady and unaware aware of the HIV status of her. That day all that happened as below

1. No penetration or intercourse to her vagina by me.
2. I fingered her vagina and my fingers got wet with her vaginal fluid. And without washing my hand I did musterbate.
3. She licked my penis but it was not a blowjob. Without condom.
4. We both sucked each others nipples.

Is there any chance of me getting HIV if she was infected?

Is there any chance of getting infection if she licks on newly healed wounded portion but without blood?

Is there any chance of getting infection if vaginal fluid comes in contact with newly healed wounded portion but without blood?

Further, on 7th feb,
1. I got my right ear swelling with pain inside the ear. Left ear is normal.
2. None of the lymph nodes are found swelling.
3. Gradually the swelling is gone and now the earlobe got little bit swelling not noticeable easily.

4. On 13th Feb night I feel little swell or numbness in my lower lip.After two days its reducing and only visible if one looks very closely.

5. On 14th Feb I feel little swell or numbness in my upper lip. Its only visible if one looks very closely.

Does these indicate HIV infection?

I have done the HIV Test today i.e. 15th Day (SERUM HIV(I & II)AG/AB( Combo)
Method : Chemiluminescent Immunoassay) and the result is non reactive. I had data of my past HIV test done as a part of my routine test in 2016. It was the same method. At that time the result was 0.09 S/CO. Now it is 0.24 S/CO. It is increasing.
Does it mean that I am infected and antibodies are growing gradually?
Do I need another test for Conclusion or this can be treated as Conclusive Test?

HIV risk through oral sex

7 months ago, I had two one night stands with two different girls( a bout a month apart) while I was in Texas. Now I'm worried that I might have HIV. I don't recall cuts on my penis and both gave me a blowjob and I only fingered them. I already had a test done two months ago and it reads that I'm HIV negative but it also said that the reason that it read negative was that it was too soon( 6 months was recommended). I feel fine except for this Streep throat that has reoccurred twice in the past three months and severe anxiety as the result of my fear. Could reoccurring Streep throat be an indicator of HIV infection? Do I need to go back and get tested to put this to rest?

Wrong PEP usage

Hi
I know it’s stupid but due to lack of knowledge I started taking PEP 3 WEEKS(not days) post exposure and once I considered what I’ve done, I made my second mistake, I continued it for more than 2 MONTHS!

Now 7 months pasts from the day 0 and I’m totally frustrated..
I’ve tested regularly through this time, monthly NAAT and DUO tests.

I guess I can not consider my HIV status because the PEP has suppressed the viral load and the immune system had enough time to develope few amount of antibodies as an answer to low viral load. And due to presence of antibody the virus never had a chance to rebound. Probably that’s why both RNA and antibody levels are below the detection line.

What you may recommend?
Thank you

How accurate is the 4th generation HIV combo test on 24 days while on pep medication?

I have unprotected vaginal intercourse with a sex worker. I am very regret on what i did and after 62 hours i am on the PEP medication. Throughout the PEP medication, i am having the side effects like nausea & dizziness almost everyday until now (24th post exposure). I have taken a 4th generation HIV combo rapid test with Alere HIV combo. The result came out negative. Would the result be accurate enough? I am having serious anxiety and go to different doctors everyday. Please help

Worried about the window period

Hi, my "exposure" was protected vaginal sex, to the best of my knowledge the condom did not break.

I had a 4 Generation HIV Test (Dynacare) at 47 days just to be on the safe side, it was non-reactive. I read that CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/hiv/basics/testing.html) and Catie (https://www.catie.ca/en/fact-sheets/testing/hiv-testing-technologies) regard the 4 Generation HIV Test as conclusive at any time beyond 45 days.

My question is, should I have another test at 3 months? Since my "exposure" was in South America, am I at any risk for HIV-2? Would HIV-2 be picked up conclusively at 47 days as well?

Thanks!

Symptoms of HIV?

Hi Dr,
Thanks for your time, Sorry for long story,
I involved in intercourse with one of prostitute, I received blow job with condom, and than I did vaginal intercourse with condom, but due too fear I stopped intercourse within 1 minute. than I asked her for hand job with condom but after 1 minute again I stopped her and told her to remove condom because still I was worried about HIV. Finally I done but I think that while she was doing hand job with condom is on. she might carry vaginal fluid on her hand which can transmitted HIV to me. I think that I might have small cut on my penis balls. after second day of the incident, I got fever ( it is like Hay fever symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes and fever. everyone is suffering around me ), but than I started google about ARS and symptoms.Immediately, I am pretty sure that I had an anxiety attack. Symptoms worsened within 24 hours of internet surfing. Clogged throat, clogged ears, sharp pain under front of chin, pain under sides of jaw (no swollen nodes that I could feel), sore jaw and teeth (clenching?), sore throat( never felt pain while eating or drinking), loose stool( it is not like diarrhea), white tongue ( I felt burning after I eat spicy food ), the list goes on and on. More than 2.5 months of that incident I felt like chest pain and pain under armpit. I have asked that prostitute she told me that she is negative but I do not know whether she is lying to me or not.
No kiss or vaginal licking involve.
Please Dr Could tell me whether I am on risk or not.
Can HIV transmit by hand job?
