One month back I visited a Strip club, During my visit I felt a prick on my hand.
With in One week I had Fever and pain in my hand. During that week I had Headache (I never had headache like that before it was like hangover and pain that comes and goes.)
At this point I went to Doctor I went through HIV 1 RNA test at 13th day and 19th day after exposure both are negative for HIV.
I had mild Sore throat,mild Cough and pain while urination (From 20th day after potential exposure). At this point I went through 4th generation HIV testing at 22 days and one more at 31 days after potential exposure. Both are negative.
What are my chances of infection and What pter testing I can go through.
Hi. I'm sorry if this has been addressed before, but I can't seem to find it. I am a woman who had a sexual encounter with a man of unknown hiv status. We used a condom for penetration, but up until then we were unprotected, so there was definitely contact between our genitals and fluids (vaginal and pre-cum) and for quite some time. Am I at risk?
Thank you so much
hello I stay in India . I had protected vaginal sex not sure of the condom date i had ejaculated inside her and had unprotected oral sex licked sex worker vagina with a lotion this is my only exposure under the bed sheets
i performed hiv p24 antigen and antibodies cmia test at 25 days which was negative
i performed hiv -1 pcr rna qualitative at 25 days which was negative
I performed hiv cmia only antibodies test which was negative
i performed hiv pcr rna quantitative test on 77 days for hiv-1 which was negative.
I performed hiv p24 antigen and antibodies test elisa method at 86 days which was 0.40 non reactive
did westernblot at 92 days which was negative
I experienced body warmness,rashes which persists till today,have blurred vision after washing eyes in the bathroom after sex . Are my test results conclusive.
hiv tridot at 17 weeks negative.
I did an HIV test 45 days of the risk situation but did not say if it was 4 generation or what generation it was the following:
Anti HIV 1 + 2 AND ANTIGEN P24 NEGATIVE
This test is based on the simultaneous determination of IgG anti-HIV1 and anti-HIV2 and antigenaemia p24, which allows to reduce the delay between contamination and virus detection.
Is it a fourth generation test? The Spanish health ministry told me that a 4-generation test passed 6 weeks of the risk situation.
Thanks for the wonderful job you are doing.
Please note my question below
I am 32 year old circumcised male and recently on my trip to Asia I had indulged in sexual activity and I wanted to know whether am I at risk. Following are the sexual activity
1) Protected vaginal sex using double condoms. After sexual activity I checked both condom and found them to be intact, that is no broken condom or no leakage etc.
2) Protected oral sex. I used single condom which never broke in oral sex.
3) There was absolutely no kissing or anything else involved.
4) I just touched her vaginal area ( only surface no insertion) once for few seconds and later I realized I had a minor non- bleeding cut on my finger. This cut was 2 days old and although bit deep seemed only superficial as there was never any bleeding.
At no time her fluids touched me except maybe during touching her vaginal surface or her fluid on my pubic hair.
I have already undergone HIV RNA PCR test on 16th Day after my sexual activity ( >2 weeks) and it came out negative.
Please let me know am I still at risk?
Good afternoon, My case is as follow, I am a man an I had sex with a prostitute and the condom broke, I realized until we finished the intercourse. I got nervous and asked her to show me her HIV tests, she showed me, but the one was from 3 months ago and the result was NON-REACTIVE, I told her it was too old, so I asked her to go with me to a health center and perform an updated HIV test, she accept. The test was done and the result was likewise NON-REACTIVE. I was investigating post-exposure prophylaxis and as I found, in my country they do not apply it if the result of the test has been NEGATIVE (NON-REACTIVE). This is correct? I mean, can I be sure that she does not have HIV and therefore could not have infected to me? Beforehand thank you very much.
this is my 3rd time positing to you but no reply at all. I am totally broken due to fear and anxiety of hiv please help me to sort out this.
I must admit that after an unprotected brief anal intercourse a second foolish mistake to do a test alere determine at home while i was not totally aware of the procedure. I did and a grey control line and a faint grey line appear after few minutes on the test strip i was shocked and assumed that my life has been ended up. after reading much articles and who website i came to know that this might be an invalid test as what i saw was a shadow and alere determine requires coloured line for reactive as many other experienced the same and WHO also stated in their practice module 9. since then i repeated test as follows
High top antibody rapid home test (non reactive at 7.5 week)
Alere determine done by me at 8.5 and 9 week non reactive
Since i know i should confirm my result i went to a health care provider in my area and tested with SD Bioline hiv 3.0 test non reactive at 10 week.
I tested again by myself at 13 week using alere determine hiv 1/2 nonreactive
at 15 week i went to a local community health care centre where they tested me with hiv antibody test rapid test non reactive
at 20 week i went to the same health care centre for the retest and they test me with alere hiv combo twice and reassure me that i am free from hiv.
Please help me to sort out my anxiety. i shall be thankfull
I went on the rugby pitch when one of my teammates got a small amount of blood in my mouth. A few days later I have a sore throat and possibly some other symptoms. From what I know he doesn't have the virus, and we were partying pretty hard while we were there. Is it possible to contract hiv through the blood of someone who doesn't have it?
I had a sexual encounter with a 70 yo gay male, although he said he was clean I know I should trust nobody, there was no actual penetration although I did rub my penis over his anus, I also performed oral sex to him but he didn't cum into my mouth but there was some pre cum as far I can remember, so around 5 seconds later he ejaculated, he put his genitals on my face and there was still some semen on his penis that rubbed my eye. Considering all these sexual activities, what's the risk of contracting HIV? Should I get worried? I'm actually worried now because 9 days later after the sex I'm getting a rash on my feet, thinking could be athlete's foot but now with the sexual encounter I had, I'm freaking out could be something else, as rashes are common symptoms for HIV . Last question, when is the best time to get tested? Should I wait a couple of months? Thank you very much.
