Positive Rapid Test but Negative ELISA test

I am a 32 year old male. I had an unprotected vaginal sex in mid December 2015. On January 26th (roughly 5 weeks after the exposure), I started feeling fatigued and had flush face for no apparent reason. Two days later, I had swollen lymph nodes (only in the neck), sore throat and oral thrush followed by a 38.2 degree fever.

The doctor told me it was probably tonsillitis and a throat infection that has caused the fever. I was given penicillin injections ( 3 applications, 1 daily for 3 days, 800 mg each) along with Paracetamol (500 mg capsules, 2 times a day) and Anti-inflammatory medicines (600 mg capsules, 2 times a day) for 3 days. My fever was gone in 3 days but I still had mild swelling in the lymph nodes with some pain and discomfort. The doctor did not feel necessary for me to continue with the anti inflammatory drugs and told me that the swelling will heal naturally.

On February 4th 2016, I told the doctor about my exposure to HIV risk and he said that although he doesn't think that I have HIV but it was wise to do a Rapid HIV test. The test was called "DoubleCheckGold" HIV 1&2. I got the result in approx. 1 hour and it was POSITIVE.
However, they said that they need to do a confirmatory ELISA 3rd Generation test to confirm. The ELISA test came out NEGATIVE. They ruled out the earlier test as a "False Positive".
I was asked to take another test 3 months after the exposure to be sure.

2 weeks later, I started having irritable bowel and diarrhea. The doctor gave me Omeprazol and IBS related medicines because I had a history of gastritis. However, they did not help. I saw a Gastroenterologist and he did not find anything serious and told me that had Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The doctor also said it was possibly due to stress and anxiety because of my HIV tests or anti inflammatory drugs. I still had swollen lymph nodes but no sore throat or pain. The stomach symptoms improved with medications.

I took ELISA 4th Generation Duo Test on March 30th i.e. roughly 3 months and 10 days after the exposure and it also came out NEGATIVE. 2 days earlier, the girl I had sex with also showed me her Rapid Test (which she took on March 25th) results and they were negative. However, I still have slightly enlarged lymph nodes although the doctor says he cannot see any swelling/redness but it definitely feels slightly bigger than normal. I also get flush face especially while eating. My blood test also showed that the percentage of lymphocytes was 15% and the normal range is between 20%-40%. According to the doctor, it was not something to be concerned about.

At this point, should I consider this test as conclusive or should I take another test in 3 months to be sure?

hiv test accuracy if the white cells are low.

Hello, thank you for viewing and answering my question. Here is the story:
Ten weeks ago I had an encounter with a sex worker whose hiv status was unknown for me. I stopped just after some contacts so we didn't really have penetrated sex. During the encounter, she kissed/licked my chest and genital area and did oral sex on me with a condom. Later I noticed I have some fresh scratches and open wounds on my chest, not sure if any cuts on the genital area, so I started to have some worries. After 2 weeks I started to feel fatigue and a bit chilling feeling, it lasted a few days. On the 62 days after the encounter, I did a 4th-generation ag/ab test of hiv, and the result was negative. I also did a full blood test, which shows my white cell was 3.6, below the normal range 4 to 10. Among the white cells, neutrophils was 1.9; lymphocytes was 1.4; monocytes was 0.2; eosinophils and basophils were 0.1. Now it is 70 days after the encounter, I get a fever, pharyngitis and nasitis. I also felt a bit fatigue. I'm now worried again. My questions are: (1) how accurate was my hiv test? (2) Because I have low white cell, will it delay the time that the virus can be detected? (3) if I want to do one more hiv test on 12 weeks, will the result be conclusive considering my low white cell counts?

Thank you very much!

HIV exposure and testing

I have an oral sex from Jan 15th 2016. My local doctor prescribed PrEP with "tenofovir disoproxil and emtricitabine".

About the CMIA test

Hello! I got a CMIA test at day 83 after a potential HIV exposure via unprotected vaginal sex. I got a negative result (0.28 result, cut-off value is 1), and I believe it is conclusive. However, I have a question about the CMIA test. Is the CMIA a 4th gen test, or are there older 3rd gen CMIA tests still used? If all CMIAs are indeed 4th gen tests, I would go for them over other standard testing formats for routine HIV checks. Please advise.

Thank you!
