HIV Testing

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!

New partner, should I retest for HIV ? Should I worry about unprotected intercourse?

HI !! I had unprotected intercourse with a lady i meant in a bar, very stupid mistake. I got tested for all STIs after one month with a 4th generation test, all negative. I then did another two other 4th generation test at 8 and 10 weeks, both negative. I Finally had a 4th generation rapid test at 80 days and an Insti rapid test just over 12 weeks which came back negative too. I am feeling pretty confident about my results but since I have a new partner I want to be certain i am all good. Should I worry about unprotected intercourse with my new partner? should I test again?
Thanks fot your time !!

Tip of Penis - Anal

Hello,

Thanks for your service, it is great help for all of us that want to know more about safe sex practices.
I am really worried about a sexual intercourse that I had yesterday; and I could not really get an answer to my question or assess if I were exposed to the risk of getting HIV.

I have met with a guy that I do not know, and I wanted to have anal sex with him.
Yesterday, I was a bit tipsy and started pushing my penis on his anus without a condom. I think that I have entered in it a bit, for a very brief moment. To be precise, I did not enter with my full head of the penis, but slightly with the tip. I read only that there is a chance that HIV can pass through the head of the penis if it comes in contact with the anal fluids.

I am worried if I should worry about this intercourse, and if I should take PEP.

Thanks in advance for your response.
