I’m a resident in Cambridge Ontario, and I had unprotected vaginal sex with a high risk partner approx. 4 weeks ago. I recently had a rapid test, which was negative, and I understand this test is unreliable prior to 12 week from exposure.
My question is, where can I go for the Duo test within my area or elsewhere even in the US? The stress of not knowing is wearing me down, and I’m prepared do whatever necessary to get tested with the Duo test. It would help to have some reassurance now, but I will also do a follow up test at 3 months.
Thank you your assistance is very much appreciated.

Hi, hiv has me scare to death. 8 months ago i had unprotected sex with a girl that i barely knew. Turns out she had a boyfriend so we had to stop seeing each other. That made me paranoid so fourty days later i went for an hiv test and full std test that came out all negative.....dr told me to come back in six months but after 3 1/2 months i started to feel sick..i felt headaches, body aches and weakness...now im scared to death and i cant get the courage to go back....it scares me because during that six month period i ended up getting a gf and we have always used condoms but one time she put the tip of my penis on her clit and rubbed then i put on a condom and had sex withh a condom...at one point the condom broke inside her but i inmidiately pulled out. I am afraid to give her something if i have it..I dont know how in the world i would face her if sometihng was wrong with me.. i never ejaculated inside her vagina or mouth...now eight months later i feel sick again..i feel extremely fatigue and weak...i dont know what to do.
hi,first i want to say thank you for answering my question last march,,but i have some worry regarding about the symptom that i felt,, last march, 15 moths after unprotected sex to a women, i went to oral hiv test the result is negative,but that time i`m wearing my false teeth covering my gums up and down, so after two weeks i went again for finger prick hiv test. the result is negative, but before the test done i have a slight fever for almost two weeks and the fever come back again after two week lasted for one week and this month had a rashes ( itchy ) on my hips and some of on my neck but not so many. also itchy.,my question are, is there a possibility of false negative of my test? or i considered the last test is conclusive..thank you,,

24M bisexual here. In a commited relationship with a female..
Anyways, on Mar 16th I made the biggest mistake of my life and hooked up with another male I met on a hookup site. He told me he was clean, and negative. I topped. The sex lasted about 3 minutes and I pulled out. About a week later I had what I believe was an HPV outbreak (my first) and thats when I started to get concerned.
I got my first HIV antibody test done at 20 days : Results were negative.
I started reading about the window period, and decided to get an antibody/antigen combo test done at 6 weeks (44 days post exposure) and the result to that test was negative also.
At this point, I was feeling pretty comforted with the negative results. But then my significant other started showing signs of ARS, 2 weeks to the day after the last time we had intercourse. She's having night sweats, diarrhea, slight fever.
What are the risks of me catching HIV as a top from a one time exposure? and what are the chances that my 6 week negative HIV test will actually turn positive at the 3 month mark?
I'm terrified that not only I am sick, but my significant other to.
Recently I have been extremely concerned about my HIV testing, especially since I have/am experiencing a few symptoms. I am a nineteen year old female and my possible exposure was on November 1st of 2015 with a male through vaginal intercourse. I unfortunately did not know his status. While were were having sex, at some point the condom broke. I do not remember the details, (I was somewhat intoxicated and this was quite a while ago) but I fear that he did not realize the condom had broken until after he had finished. I then performed oral sex on him (I know that is low risk but I am just trying to be as specific as I can be). I then saw him about a week and a half later on Nov. 11 and we had protected sex and I performed oral again (unprotected). After this (2 weeks) I went to the Women's Clinic at my university and tested negative for chlamydia and gonorrhea. At this point I was not experiencing any symptoms of ARS (at least I don't remember any). A little less than two months later I got a deep cough and sore throat after a late night out in the cold. The sore throat went away in a day but the cough has been on and off ever since, sometimes with phlegm, sometimes without. I then started to think about HIV. At 81 days after the unprotected sex and about 10 weeks after the protected, I tested negative with an Oraquick Home Rapid Test. I might add that I was extremely careful with following the instructions. This test provided me with some relief, but a couple of weeks later (13 weeks past possible exposure) I got a cold. The cough was worse and with congestion in my head/nose and a sore throat. The doctor said my lymph nodes in my neck were a bit swollen but not too bad, no fever or anything. She have me some cold medicine and it cleared up in a week, but the cough still lingers on and off today. Because of the cold, I decided to test again with Oraquick (seeing that the first test was not past 12 weeks since exposure). At exactly 14 weeks since the most recent possible exposure (the protected sex and unprotected oral on Nov. 11th) I tested negative with Oraquick. Being me, I was still extremely freaked out as I dwelled on the experiences and scheduled a test at my clinic. On February 23rd (16+ weeks post the high risk unprotected sex and 15 weeks since the lower oral risk) I was tested with a Clearview Complete rapid antibody HIV 1/2 Test, which I think is a 2nd Gen. test. The result came back nonreactive. Despite these few tests I cannot shake the idea that I could be HIV positive, especially since I am still experiencing the cough with a few other symptoms like occasional headaches, congestion and some mild joint pain. I have been to the doctor several times since and she has told me not to worry too much, seeing that it is most likely due to allergies and the weather here, but nothing really seems to work. I have even expressed my fear of HIV to her. My main fear is that I have/am seroconverting late so my tests would not have picked up antibodies. I know that some say the window period is 3 months, but I have also read i that you cannot be sure you are negative until after a 6 month test, especially after you had a high risk event like mine, or if your "medical history is incompatible with the tests". I really do not understand that last statement, does it mean that since I still have symptoms I should test again? I'll add that I have not had any health issues in the past so I really do not know why I would be a late seroconverter, nor am I on any serious meds. Since the experiences I have not engaged in any high risk actives, out of fear that I will infect someone I care about. Also, I really do not know much about the Clearview Complete test, just that it is only a second gen. test. Which makes me worry if it is as updated/popular/recommend as other tests. I am getting a 6 month test (Clearview) on Tuesday, but am terrified! Is there a large likelihood that I will be positive? Are these rapid antibody tests that I have been taking any less reliable then a blood test? Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to my worries, it is extremely appreciated!
