4th Generation/DUO test

HIV 4th generation test accuracy

I took the hiv-1/hiv-2 and p24 antigen test after 45 days.is it conclusive?

How are window periods proved?

Hi, there.

I tested 4th generation test for 4, 6, 8 weeks after I had exposure with Thailand sex worker, and it was negative.
Also, I tried to confirm myself to have a last test at 12 weeks with oraquick, and it was negative.

So, as far as I know, I am negatvie and there shouln't be any more doubt about it.
But since my girlfriend was having fever and throat pain for few days, I started to worry about hiv again...

My biggest question is that, how we can really confirm that window period is 12 weeks(or 3month)?
I found that, it is really difficult to find someone who found out themselves about their hiv infection in 12 weeks, as i see, most of them didn't even know if they had it, and just diagnosed few months, or even few years later.

So how these doctors figured out that window period is 12 weeks? and also, as you may know, Hiv-2 is really really rare in everywhere except for West Africa, then how they could find out hiv-2 window period?

please give me answers..I am still worried..
sorry for my poor english.

symptoms and negative tests

Hello
I had a high-risk exposure in which the condom was disrupted in vaginal sex. The girl that I related was at the end of menstruation, I happen to have seen no visible blood on my penis. When I realized that I had broken I took it off and immediately went to wash. After 10 days of the act I began to feel symptoms that until the present date permance. The symptoms were: oral ulcers, rash, pharyngitis, shivering, body aches and pains, lack of appetite, white tongue, fungus on rough nails, peeling of hands and feet. Over the course of three and a half months I've been testing myself with Elisa 4th G and PCR-RNA at 30, 60 and 80 days, all of these negatives. The last test was an Elisa in 15 weeks. Should I still be concerned about HIV, and still have symptoms such as chills and white tongue?

HIV Testing Window Periods - Do I need to test again? +++Anxiety

Hello,
I had unprotected vaginal sex with a man back in May of this year. I had a HIV test completed which was nonreactive. I'm not sure which type of test this was exactly, however on the report is says HIV 1+2 Ab+HIV1 p24 Ag and then the result as nonreactive. Is this a fourth generation test? I was then retested at three months post my potential HIV exposure back in May with the same test which was again nonreactive. My question is do I need to test again at 6 months post exposure or is my test at 3 months considered conclusive? This is causing me a lot of anxiety as I can not find any consistent answers in the literature regarding this. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Please Help!

Hello, I need help. I was involved in a risk a few years ago. The only reason I was aware of this risk is because of the chronic diarrhea I've been getting. I did the rapid insti antibodies hiv 1-2 test at a clinic and there were no antibodies found. This test was done possibly a year and a half to two years after possible exposure. I'm thinking there were no antibodies present in the system or have disappeared. I also went in to a clinic for blood work but I haven't heard back from them in over a month and I'm getting really nervous because I don't know how long exactly before I would hear a response from the doctor. Do antibodies disappear and how long would I have heard from the doctor if something was present. Please help!

Please asses my risk

Hello,
I had an unprotected vaginal and oral sex while I had a herpes on my lips
Week 3: started to feel pain in my right armpit and left groin
I was so anexious so I started to take black seed daily based on this article please take a look at it
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3218437/
I’m still on this herbal therapy
Week 4-6: had 2 DUO tests as well as one Individual NAAT all came negative
Week 7: some symptoms appeared one after one including fevers chills a sore throat, join pain,malaise, fatigue, nausea and herpes
Week 8-10: severity of symptoms declined and disappeared by end of the week 10 except the fever
I had 3 negative DUO tests weekly
Week 11-13: all the lymph network is painful including armpits, shoulders, arms, chest, belly, groins, neck...
2 suspicious bruises
The fever showed up and disappeared once in a while
I had 3 negative DUO tests as well as another negative individual NAAT

I am writing to you in week 14th and I’m totally fed up with HIV testing
To check other possible risks, I had a complete blood test, all in normal range
I lost my weight during this period 2-3kg and the worst part is the painful lymph network is still there.
Would you please asses my risk of HIV infection?
Thank you

Unprotected fellatio...fully protected vaginal sex....Latex condom being intact..

Sir , I had sex with one female ( unknown status of HIV) 9 days ago , unprotected oral sex by me lending penis and she giving mouth i.e. penile mouth oral sex ...I am HIV -..... did not ejaculate ( she appeared not to have any mouth sores, also when kissed , I could not taste any blood or any bad breath or any abnormality /abrasion - but I am not 100% confident about gum disease, if any she had).. we kissed not very deep and not dry either for 10-12 seconds max....
Then I had fully protected vaginal sex and the condom being fully intact ( I am sure as I have checked it two times during the activity and also checked by putting it under tap water - it did not leaked ) hence I am fully confirm to have it intact....no ejaculation and ejected the penis while more or less straight... No condom sleep off ....
Now she had no lesions/rashes on her entire body / skin / face/ mouth ....appeared hyegenic...
But now I am freaking out for the fear of HIV....
How about my chances of contracting it ....?
Please reply to it...

I am very anxious....

symptoms for 2 months, do I have HIV?

I had protected sex 2 month ago and I know its protected and hiv can't be passed this way but during the intercourse I heard the condom pop but after ejaculation when I took out I couldn't see it break but since then after 10 days I had fatigue and diarrhea which lasted 1 month and swollen lymph nodes on my neck which lasted about 5 weeks and my main problem is some mouth lesions or ulcers inside my mouth in the area between the wisdom tooth and the tongue and I get sore throat till now that come and go and also night sweats now I know I used a condom but these symptoms have no other explanation I made cbc which was normal t3,t4 were normal also negative for epv and mono and negative at 27 days for syphlis and gnorrhea.

I went for an hiv antibody test at 27 days after the exposure which came back negative but I don't know what generation it is but its name is hiv 1,2 antibody test
and also tested negative at 47 days using the same test they took blood from the vein not finger prick
so what are my chances that I am hiv positive and are these mouth problems an ars symptoms that stay for this long?
