4th Generation/DUO test

4 generation comment mean

What does this comment mean?: 
COMMENT:The kit simultaneously detects: 
i)HIV-1 antibodies (lgG & lgM class of sub-type O & gp41) and HIV-2 antibodies (lgG class of gp36) 
ii) P24 antigen 
*The test aims to reduce the window period and picks the patient in very early stage. 
Note:High Antibody level may mask the antigen result and vice versa. The test value is not displayed for the masked result and the message ND - NOT DETERMINABLE appears in the result.
 

CONCLUSIVE

 
Hi There,
 
I had a sexual encounter on the 6th of May 2012 and i m still under uncertainty. My wife is pregnant and i m really scared due to my stupidity. 
 
I had the following tests since then:
 
08/06/2012 which is 33 days after ECLIA antobodies test Negative
18/06/2012 which is 6 weeks HIV AG/AB TEST NON REACTIVE
20/06/2012 which is 6 weeks and 3 days ELISA 3rd generation antibodies test NEGATIVE
02/07/2012 which is 8 weeks pcr rna test real time negative.
06/07/2012 which is almost 9 weeks ELISA antibodies 3rd generation test NEGATIVE
30/07/2012 which is 12 weeks exactly HIV AG/AB Test non reactive
01/08/2012 which is 12 weeks and 3 days 87 days in total ELISA 3rd generation antibodies test Negative
 
My questions are:
 
1. What is the window period 12 weeks or 3 months because i m confused with this? 3 months is 13 weeks so why all say 12 weeks? Does it makes any serious difference the 5 days?
 
2. I have experienced all serious symptoms and still have them. I started having them from 6 weeks post exposure they stopped at 11 week and started again after the 12 week. Is this possible?
 
3. Should i get tested again or i m fine? 
 
Thanks in advance for your kind reply

4 generation test

 
got 4 generation test at 6 weeks after 46 days
which say..
Index of antibody =0.09 
Index of P24 Antigen =0.02 
Threshold and interpretation of result: 
Index i interpretation 
i less than 0.25 Non-reactive for Antigen (P24)And Antibody 
i grater than 0.25 Reactive for Antigen (P24) Or Antibody
This result indicate positive or nagative???

Index value

 
Index of antibody =0.07 
Index of P24 Antigen =0.00 
Threshold and interpretation of result: 
Index i interpretation 
i < 0.25 Non-reactive for Antigen (P24)And Antibody 
i > 0.25 Reactive for Antigen (P24) Or Antibody
 
why Index of P24 Antigen =0.00 ???

hiv symptoms

if i have hiv test done at 3, 9, and 13 weeks with hiv combo (pg24 and antibodies) and i have immune disorder; can the combo test detect antigens if not antiboies? and still I'm experiencing hiv symptoms, mostly painful lymph nodes, fatigue and weight loss.

Are my HIV Tests conclusive?

Hi I had an unprotected encounter with a female - whose status I don't know, a sex worker. I had stray symptoms like sore throat and dry cough but I am anyway a toncilitis patient, and as I read from various threads in your forum not to go by symptoms. No fever, flu though. Some pimples here and there. After 6 weeks 3 days exactly after exposure, I got tested in 2 leading pathological clinincs who provide results online (i.e., I need not go back to the clinic again for report collection). The test results are like this at 6 weeks 3 days:
1. HIV I&II Antibody Screen (Rapid) - Non-Reactive
2. HIV Screening Test 1&2 Antibody - Enzyme Immuno Assay Technique - Non-Reactive
3. HIV 1/2 & P/24 COMBO TEST (Ref Range <1 Non-Reactive, >=1 Provisionally Reactive) - 0.32 Non-Reactive
4. HIV-1 RNA QUANTITATIVE, REAL TIME PCR using COBAS AMPLIPREP & TAQMAN( Linear Range <20 to 1.0 X 10power7) - Target Not Detected
5. Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (HIV-1) RNA Quantification (Viral load) - COBAS TaqMan (Limit of Detection 20 - 10,000,000 copies/ml) - NOT APPLICABLE, BELOW 20 6. WESTERN BLOT - ALL [ENV],[GAG],[POL] NEGATIVE; Conclusion - HIV I & II Negative Is this conclusive or I need to test again @ 12 weeks? How much chance do I have to turn positive?
