This is my story. I had sex with a HIV infected partner, and he revealed to me his HIV positive status only when I started to have acute symptoms 3 months later after exposure when I texted him with a question, what's the matter with me, it looks like HIV and if it is, it is certainly from you and he answered me, yes I have HIV. Up to that 3 months period I had not suspected and not thought at all about any HIV. But after his confession I started to remember the prehistory. All that previous time I had an exhausted look though I didnt feel very tired. I also had some rare small night sweat outbreaks. After about 2,5 months I started to have some very small pain in the throat which after 3 months grew to a terribly full-blown flu-like episode with my pharynx hot-red and so painful, though fever grew slowly and did not rise above 38. All that time I had painful neck under the chin, which continues to this day and has not gone anywhere. This flue-like episode lasted about a week. But temperature about 37.2-37.5 lasted 2 months. Now too from time to time it rises to 37-37.2. Now often when I get up in the morning my temperature is 36.2 but the moment I leave my house for work it is often 37.2. I felt terribly tired about 1-1.5 months, I could hardly prevent myself from falling flat on earth any moment. But after 1-1.5 it disappeared almost completely. I also lost about 7 kg within a month, after that I gained back my weight quickly and even over my usual weight. From that time on my bowel gradually behaved worse, although before I have never had any problem with it. My stool about 1 month after an acute episode started to be more and more liquid. Now about about 1-2 times a week I have a perfect diarroea and this keeps going on already for more than 8 months. During the acute period my two very small hardly visible warts on the head became bloody and now they are quite bigger in size. During the acute period I started to have a coated tongue, which does not improve and continues to this day. I had HIV tests after 3,5, 6, 8, 10 months after exposure, all are negative. I have had some tender small spots in the lymphatic region in the neck and about the armpits on the chest from that period up to this time. So you can see I still have symptoms which I have never had before: sore throat with coughing (continues to this day), coated tongue, rises in body temperature, liquid stools with diarrhoea, some tiredness and weakness bringing me definitely some level down (though generally I am satisfactory). My exposure details are such. Anal sex was protected (I am on the active side), but my skin on the penis easily breaks even after small rubbing with some blood showing due to chronic fungal dermatitis. We had a lot of kisses, and there are papillomas in my throat which delay swallowing. I should explain about my fungal condition. It is chronic but spread all over the body and it is dormant. But if I rub my skin any anywhere just very little it breaks and becomes an injure. My doctor was very surprised that my fungus on the body did not disappear after many treatments with antifungals and became chronic though inactive, he said he has never seen such a case in his life. As for me I can attribute my new continuing symptoms to nothing else but HIV. Also it seems my immunity (although good enough in itself for living) is somewhat special and abnormal and can explain somewhat strange reaction of my body to HIV. Also I should say I cannot pay for PCR test, I must tell my name if I want it free, but I am terribly afraid of being disclosed. I will greatly appreciate your responses to my question what can you tell me about my case and what should I do? Can I do RNA test in your laboratory? Regards.

Are my test results conclusive
Hello I'm from Brazil. Excuse me for weak English. I'm a man. Exactly 6 months ago I had a sexual exposure with a program girl and the condom broke in vaginal sex. In the first 3 months I had almost all the symptoms of the acute phase of HIV. And in the first three months I ran several RNA and fourth-generation Elisa tests and all of them tested negative. The girl I met had a 3-generation test after three-and-a-half months, and hers also tested negative.
Now, after six months I have re-run another 4 generation Elisa test and it came out negative. But there were some rashes on my skin and impetigo was noted. I was afraid of being AIDS. What is the chance that I will be infected with HIV? Are the tests reliable? Thank you!
136 days after risk exposure hiv test came negative Is it ok This was the My 9th test for hiv. Previous All come back as negative
Yesterday I had unprotected sex with lady I met in the club, next day I asked her to come with me to do HIV test 4th generation, The her result was negative.
I’m still worried, Do I need to do test after one month?
Thank you for your support and advice.
i had sex with CSW , used condom , but there was vaginal blood on my hands which had cuts
no symptoms till now
had hiv antibody 1 and 2 test at 100 day
and hiv antibody antigen p24 test at 100 day
all came non reactive
please suggest , are my test conclusive i am in lot of stresssssssss
Had unprotected sex got tested 4 times.
On 29th unclear result
On 44th negative
On 91th negative
And on 189th negative
The thing is that i really doubt all the 3 negative tests because of the unclear test result. How come i tested unclear and then became negative? Is it false negative? Have you seen a case of someone taking more than 6 months to detect hiv antibodies? Do i need more testing?
i had an unprotected anal sex with a gay ( me insertive partner) whose status unkown . i had a p24 antigen antibody test negative at 39 days and 67 days after exposure .Is my result conclusive or i need to retest again at 84 days .Please advice
I had a sexual encounter with an HIV+ man (which I found out later). Though I was the top and we had protected sex most of the time. I rubbed my penis on his anus and teased it, and inserted it into his anus for around 10 seconds a couple of times. I also fingered his anus and went in a bit deep with a couple of fingers. I had Dyshidrotic Eczema (very small stress bumps filled with transparent fluids but no open wounds that I can recall) on my fingers at the time.
I was put on PEP on the 60th hour post exposure and have been taking the medications everyday. I'm on day 14 at the moment and have 14 more to go.
On the 11th day post exposure, I started having a sore throat, a fever of 99.8 to 100 F, congested/runny nose, sneezes, coughs and headaches. Today, these subsided minus the fever which still fluctuates between 99.5 and 100 F.
I'm really worried about my HIV status. My question is: are there any sorts of HIV tests that I can take while being on PEP that can tell me about my status? Or do I need to finish all 28-days of PEP to get tested via 4th gen HIV test or RNA test?
Thank you for your help.
