HIV Testing

Should I move on now?

Thanks for the amazing service!!

I had a low risk exposure 11 weeks ago when I had vaginal intercourse with two legal prostitutes. I used condoms which I am 100% did not fail in one of the encounters then during the other I am certain the condom was put on and remained during penetration (which was short) but do not remember taking it off thus providing some anxiety. I have done a fourth generation hiv test (blood drawn from vein and sent to lab)and an Insti test at 45 days (around 6 weeks) followed by another rapid insti test at 65 days (around 9 weeks), a fourth generation test (blood drawn from vein) at 72 days (around 10 weeks) and finally an insti rapid test at exactly 11 weeks. Everything has come back negative. The doctors and nurses at the clinics i did those test have told me they were negative and refuse to test me again, I just really want to know that I am safe as I am entering a new relationship (my new partner being aware of the whole situation). And both would like to ditch the condoms and Im still nervous even though every testing services have told us I am all good. Can I really trust my results?
I really look forward to your answer!

Sexual Activity with Tran Woman and Fear of HIV

Hello,

I have done sexual activity with trans woman sex worker for the first time, Both used condom, I received anal from the trans woman but after reading on internet i got anxiety that the condom was broken or had tears and that is just like condom was not used! The meeting was not too long, was like 1 hour.

I have done PCR RNA and Ab tests at day 8, with other testes like Hep B,C and Syphilis. Thankfully all were negative. After that i read in the Internet that PCR RNA test is not accurate and I read that there is 4th gen test Ab/Ag that can be done after 28 days.

I have done the DUO test at the start of day 28. The result was negative.

I still have anxiety and it is irritating my overall health.

I would appreciate your kind response. Should I stay worried?

Kind regards,

Is it a condom failure?

Hi, several weeks ago I had an intercourse with a sexual worker. When I pulled out, a condom left stayed inside her. I also forgot pinch the tip.
I got tested for
p24 at 13 days
RNA PCR qual at 24 days
Finger prick test at 6 weeks.
The results came back negative. Could you please assess a risk of the encounter?

Fear of HIV - Have symptoms but tested negative using Oraquick

On 08/22/18 I gave unprotected oral sex to a man. He did not appear to ejaculate. We also tongue kissed. He had a recently chipped front tooth that appeared red where the tooth had been chipped. I do not believe I had any open cuts in my mouth, but my gums do bleed a little from brushing daily, so I don't know how high the risk is that I could contract HIV that way. 9 days after being with him on 08/31/18 I started experiencing severe stomach pains that felt like bloating or excess gas (GasX did not help), and vomiting, along with constipation (hard & very little stool daily). I have never experienced this type of stomach pain before, and had not vomited in years before that day. I purchased an Oraquick test kit today (09/09/18) which is now 18 days after being exposed and the result was negative. My stomach discomfort has mostly subsided, but I now have a strange nagging muscle/joint ache in my left hip area whenever I move that leg, along with constipation still. I do not know the status of the man I was with. Any info would be helpful. I am planning on having a Rapid HIV test done as soon as I hit the 4 week mark.

Will I catch HIV if I foreplay with a women?

Hii there,

I went to an erotic massage parlour last week. I was doing foreplay with her. I was only kissing her neck though. But I found few blisters or acne on her. So, I'm afraid anything would happen.

My question is how will I know if I catch some STI's or STD's or HIV for that matter? It has been 5 days since I went there. Please help. Thank you.

Symptoms

I had protected sex with a worker on March 31st and 2 weeks later I started having symptoms like breathlessness, diarrhea, night sweats, 5% weight loss, feverish feeling but no fever. I tested for HIV RNA PCR test, HIV 1 and 2 antibodies after 10 days, 1, 3 and 4 months of exposure and they were all negative but today even after 5 months I still feel the symptoms are not going away and every day I feel I have a new symptom for e.g., I have been having severe dry mouth, my body is always hot, my throat is always disturbing, cough, dizziness feeling, anus burning, pain in armpits. When I read up, all these are symptoms of HIV. Should I get tested again? I am unable to do anything else apart from worrying that why are my symptoms not going away and if my tests were negative then what do I do? Please suggest I am really concerned and I am struggling with my life everyday
