4th Generation/DUO test

worried plz help

Hi there,
I visited Dubai 18 days ago , I got drunk and i took an Asian CSW to my hotel , I asked her if she's clean and she told me that she's fine (but I think she didn't understand my question well because of her bad English) we kissed then she gave me unprotected oral sex, then she wanted me to have anal sex with her, I put a condom on and there was no lube, I rubbed her anus for about a minute then, while i was trying to push my penis into her anus the condom broke (am sure that my penis head didn't enter her anus) but what concerns me is that the tip of my penis head may have entered her anus (less than 0.5 cm) and that only was for 3 seconds or less. i didn't notice any fluids on my penis.
Igot tested 14 days after the event (duo test ) and came back negative .
So would you please tell me what's my risk?

Handjob by Sex Worker

Hi , On 3rd JAN, I did a silly mistake , It was my first time , I was drunk and had an encounter with a commercial sex worker. She gave me handjob with condom at the same time I fingered her vagina. I had no cuts on my finger at all. I don't know about the her hands status with which she wore me a condom . Till now I have not seen any weird symptoms on my body. I think after handjob when condom was removed , I had accidental touch of finger having vaginala fluid (wasnt much liquid , was kind of dried) with upper penis part. I know its stupid , but it happened. I am very much worried . I did (p24 antigen , HIV dua , RNA + DNA) on 6th Jan results were negetive . I took p24 antigen by ELFA on 16th Jan(After 13 days) which negetive. Again I did HIV DUO(CMIV test 4th gen) on 2 FEB (After 29 days ) . It was non reactive. The index was 0.51. Do I need to test further anymore. As I think its only anxiety eating me nothing else. Please suggest.

Please Guide me I'm so worried

I had almost a zero risk incident at a licensed massage parlour with vaginal fluids on possible body cuts. Alright I'll structure my problem and express. Incident :My exposure was in an erotic massage parlor with body slides oral (was wearing condoms all the time during my stay). The only risky situation was when she started rubbing her clit which I stopped forcibly in few seconds and she started rubbing her fingers from chest all the way down near my groin (had my chest shaven and must have had small cuts and she rubbed excessively with high friction). Regarding Symptoms From first week Generall fatigue ,flu like symptoms from the first week,body aches, muscle twitching,mild low grade fever, change of taste inside mouth Second week Development of neck gland pains and soreness, mild swollen gland only in neck which came on and off and still lasts after 8 weeks. mild fungus near anus and groin area which got cured but reappeared in groin at the 5th week and disappeared after 7 weeks. Third week While other symptoms remained, nausea started getting with ocassional diahrrea or lose stools almost once in two days, blurry eyes with problems with my far eyesight which still persists. Fourth Week Started Persistent night sweating almost every day,muscle burning and weight loss.Mild lung pains with slight dry cough which disappeared. Fifth week More of the Same but less diarrhea. Neck Gland swells got reduced Sixth Week Vert strange bowel movements giving weird noises at night and in daytime after meals, still persisted with night sweats. Masturbated after a long time (5 weeks) and after an ejaculation the inflammation in scrotum and maybe in prostate.Which still appears when I go through an erection. Ocassional Diarrhea! Seventh Week Reduced night sweats but day time excessive sweating particularly on my palms, Throat gland infection feeling persists. Saw some mild red blotches on my forearms but they disappear in few seconds/ minutes. Last symptom to develop was an ulcer underneath my tongue probably after consuming a fluid that lot of citrates, chlorides.Mild sore throat and gland swelling only in throat remains.Persisting Diarrhea for 2 days. Eighth Week (Current) Muscle twitching, gland pain general fatigue still prevails with lose bowel movements with mild night sweating. Red blotches in palms and arms which disappear in few seconds. Sweating on palms is another one. These symptoms terrify me. Now Tests I had: 3rd Week: HepA,B,C,FBE, Hiv Ag/Ab Combo,syphillis,U-CTPCR,U-NGPCR, Chlamydia,Mono All Negative 4th Week at 25 Days repeated Hiv Ag/Ab Combo Negative 5th week after 33 Days Repeated Hiv Ag/Ab Combo Negative 6th Week After 39 Days Repeated Hiv Ag/Ab Combo Negative along with a FBE Report which shows abnormalities in White Cells, Neutrophils with increments above the range. Lymphosites have increased a bit as well but within the range. 7.3 Weeks after 51 Days Hiiv Ag/Ab Negative Possible Distractions to reduce the accuracy of results: Consumed a Herbal drink which you prepare by boiling some traditional 5 herbs in water. This is something I consume when I'm generally unwell for flu,cold etc. Herbs are renowned to possess antibacterial,antiviral and antifungal elements. Period of Consumption: A Couple of days of the first week then repeated for numerous days during 3rd and 4th weeks irregularly. Last time I consumed was around 4-4.2 weeks period.I wonder if this had some impact on my results. Has someone experienced this sort of close symptoms to ARS and turned out negative? My GP doesn't let me test for HIV again saying I've had a cluster of tests and doesn't want to repeat it for a considerable time. All doctors and experts hav been saying this is a non-hiv situation, but how on earth these symptoms remain? Any feedback will be thoroughly appreciated!


Dear Doctors,
First of all apologize for my English it is not my first language.
- I am a male and three months back I had unprotected vaginal sex in West Africa
- After 20 days I received unprotected oral sex, again in West Africa
- Two weeks after first event I was diagnosed with chlamydia.
Upon one week of the last incident noticed red blisters, a couple on hands, legs and stomach. I visited the Doctor who told me that it was possible reaction to three different types of antibiotics that I took against chlamydia or insect bites me.
Total 5 times I was tested on HIV and the two last tests were 4te generation - HIV duo test, first 6 weeks and second 8 weeks after last incident.
On the internet I read almost everything written about HIV and came to the conclusion that HIV is still mystery, or that some people purposely bringing panic to desperate people like I am now.
Please be so kind and answer a few questions that I could not find an answer:
1. Red rashes alone without fever, diarrhea, vomiting, headaches and nausea ... symptom of HIV or not ?
2. During acute infection people become HIV+?
3. Is it possible that after one month of the first symptoms of the patient HIV duo test is still negative?
4. Why some people develop antibodies to the period of 3-6 months? Those people are with weakened immune systems or people suffering from other diseases?
5. I will definitely take another tested after 3 months from the last incident, but I'm definitely interested in your opinion on the reliability of HIV duo test at 6 and 8 weeks?
6. Do you agree with UK HIV test guidelines for year 2008 where the HIV 4th generation test is conclusive after 6 weeks. If you do not agree please state reasons for disagreement?
7. Any other type of HIV beside 1 and 2?
God bless you!

4th generation/duo test available in Toronto

I don't mean to repeat this same question again as I know you had replied to someone and also provided with a number to get accurate information. 1-800-668-2437 The hotline do tell me that the 4th generation test is available in labs, and asked me to get further information from clinics. ( They're refering to the Hassel Free Clinic.) However, the clinic hardly answered my question about the 4 generation test, they even told me rapid testing they are always doing is the 4 generation. Frome my knowledg it's not likely what they said is right. I have also called other clinics that do not even know what the meaning of 4th generation lab test. I respect their professional knowledge, can you make a call to the clinic so as to find out if any 4 generation testing truly available in Toronto, please? The number is 416-922-0566. Sorry for bothering. Thank you so much!!
