4th Generation/DUO test

Possible HIV? 07/13/2016

Please help!

I performed oral sex on guy who, without asking, ejaculated in my mouth. A couple days later I had IBS and heat burning sensation in my hands, bottom of my feet, legs and back and some uncolored rashes that comes and goes within a day or two. Not knowing if these symptoms were related to anxiety (me checking my body in the mirror and worrying too much) or if I contracted STD ...at 11 days post "possible" exposure I took Lab Corp HIV RNA Qualitative blood test and come out NEGATIVE. Then, at 32 days post "possible" exposure I took Lab Corp HIV 4th Generation wRfx which also came out NO REACTIVE on on both - P24 & Antibodies, and if my anxiety was not enough at "40" days post "possible" exposure I took another HIV AG/AB, 4TH GEN with Quest laboratory which also came out both as NO-REACTIVE. I stilll feel burning sensation on my hands, legs and body but my doctor says it s nerves due to too my stress. With these tests done - I know everyone says after 12 weeks is conclusive BUT Can I be really sure I don't have HIV virus ?? Is it possible to get p24 gen NO-REACTIVE and Antibodies NO-REACTIVE at the same time after 32 and 40 days post exposure?? Please help

HIV transmission with ARS

Good day. I had an awkward night with a sex worker last September. We had French kiss ( I had a cavity in my teeth and I do not remember whether there was obvious blood or not in her mouth) , rubbing my penis (unprotected) on her vagina without inserting and 3 times protected vaginal sex with her as long as I remember the condoms were intact. Starting point of awful days was at 29 days after exposure by getting a cold-like and maddening anxiety. Day by day, I was finding new symptoms (as I thought). I felt fluctuation pains inside of arm’s muscles. Moreover, I was a little bit feeling cool on my both hand until I wore a jacket which somehow disappeared them from days of 42 to 48. At 42 days after my risky action when I thought I was HIV positive, my 4th Gen HIV Elisa test came out Non-Reactive. I could not believe the test result. I assumed that something goes wrong on my body not to produce enough antibody in order to be diagnosis by test. Further, I went to the same Lab (a private lab in Iran) to retest at 12 weeks mark which again was Non-Reactive through 4th Gen Elisa. After that, I started thinking that definitely the Lab's Technician was not master to conduct the test although he told me he was experienced about 2-3 years in immunology diagnosis departments. I could not help thinking myself until 200 days when I went to another lab to retest because of my killer anxiety regarding unreliability of last couple tests. The new Lab uses ECL method which is fully automated diagnosis screening method. Again came out non-Reactive. I just got calmed down for a while. After one month, again anxieties came into my mind that may be they did something wrong. Of course, most probably my worries are somehow due to obsessions. Now, I would like you to assure me whether my exposure was risky? Was my teeth made French kissing risky action for HIV transmission? Were my ARS related to HIV or not. Thanks a lot

HIV through Cut


I had an encounter with a gentleman with whom we discussed his status and mine (both negative) and I pick at my thumbs, but had a band aid over it. During lunch, the band aid came off, and after, we made out in the car and I touched his penis and may have gotten precum on my thumb, then he did do filatio to me, but did not for long. I got test tested with the 4th generation test 8 weeks and 1 day after to which it came back negative. What is the likelihood of HIV transmitting, and should I get tested again?

Approximately 3 days ago I had sex with a CSW. During this encounter, I performed oral sex on her but for a very short amount of time (kissing, not really licking), and I am not sure if I had any sores in my mouth, but when I took time to notice that evening and the following morning, I didn't see or feel anything unusual. She also performed oral sex on me, but I was wearing a condom and ejaculated in the condom in her mouth. This was the extent of our activity.

Six months prior to this, I had a different encounter with a CSW (also the first time I really thought about the possibility of contracting HIV) where we did oral/protected vaginal sex, and I made sure to get tested regularly afterwards. My last HIV test, taken sometime before the encounter 3 days ago, was negative. During those six months, the thought of having possibly contracted HIV really wore me down mentally, and it is an awful feeling to know I have to go through another six months of hell in order to clear the HIV-possibility for this last encounter.

I just have a few questions that I am hoping can set my mind at ease. 1) What is my risk of having received HIV? 2) Do you recommend that I get tested given my experience? 3) If I were to take a 4th Gen Antibody/Antigen test (available at a clinic nearby) when would I need to get tested to get a conclusive result, or are there any tests that provide conclusive results before the standard six months (all the tests I have taken were 3rd gens)?

Please help. I'm very anxious and worn out from the fear and just can't think that this nightmare has begun again.

Antibody/p24 antigen test

I did an antibody test 7 days after exposure and a combination (antibody/p24 antigen) test 22 days after last exposure. They were both negative. My question is how accurate my second test is?

PEP? warranted HIV test ?

I had an encounter with someone online, i kind of hate myself for it, but please address my concern.
i am a male i was with another male, first time.

1. mutual unprotected handjob (unfinished)
2. unprotected rubbing penes for about 1 min ( not head to head contact) unfinished.

3. protected mutual oral sex for about 1-2 min (unfinished)
4. protected attempting insertive anal sex, unsuccesfull penetration due anxiety and my pene got soft.
i attempted to penetrate him, 3 times and it could not go in, he had little bit of lube on his ass.

5. i finished myself
6. he never finished himself.

7. I brought my condom to my place, and filled it with water for a leakage test.
it was intact, not leak, no tear,no break...


Should i go for an HIV duo test at 28 days? if negative should i trust it?
Do you see any potential hiv exposure on the situation i just described you?
Did i protected good enough ?
