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.

Please asses my risk

Hello,
I had an unprotected vaginal and oral sex while I had a herpes on my lips
Week 3: started to feel pain in my right armpit and left groin
I was so anexious so I started to take black seed daily based on this article please take a look at it
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3218437/
I’m still on this herbal therapy
Week 4-6: had 2 DUO tests as well as one Individual NAAT all came negative
Week 7: some symptoms appeared one after one including fevers chills a sore throat, join pain,malaise, fatigue, nausea and herpes
Week 8-10: severity of symptoms declined and disappeared by end of the week 10 except the fever
I had 3 negative DUO tests weekly
Week 11-13: all the lymph network is painful including armpits, shoulders, arms, chest, belly, groins, neck...
2 suspicious bruises
The fever showed up and disappeared once in a while
I had 3 negative DUO tests as well as another negative individual NAAT

I am writing to you in week 14th and I’m totally fed up with HIV testing
To check other possible risks, I had a complete blood test, all in normal range
I lost my weight during this period 2-3kg and the worst part is the painful lymph network is still there.
Would you please asses my risk of HIV infection?
Thank you

HIV Insti rapid test

Hi and thanks for the informative forum and services. A few months ago I had intercourse with several sex workers. I used condoms protection to be safe. As I am now entering a new relationship with a new partner I thought it would be smart to get checked for every STD and HIV before engaging in sexual intercourse. All STDs were negative and I did a Insti HIV test at an HIV testing checkpoint near my home. The rapid test was done by a trained HIV counsellor and I got the results in one minute which were negative. I did the test exactly 86 days since my last encounter with a sex worker. As I know absolutely nothing about testing and noticed you often refer to this rapid test I thought I would ask you, if this test can be considered final and I can go in this relationship fully reassured?
I look forward to your response!!
Warm regards :)

Unprotected fellatio...fully protected vaginal sex....Latex condom being intact..

Sir , I had sex with one female ( unknown status of HIV) 9 days ago , unprotected oral sex by me lending penis and she giving mouth i.e. penile mouth oral sex ...I am HIV -..... did not ejaculate ( she appeared not to have any mouth sores, also when kissed , I could not taste any blood or any bad breath or any abnormality /abrasion - but I am not 100% confident about gum disease, if any she had).. we kissed not very deep and not dry either for 10-12 seconds max....
Then I had fully protected vaginal sex and the condom being fully intact ( I am sure as I have checked it two times during the activity and also checked by putting it under tap water - it did not leaked ) hence I am fully confirm to have it intact....no ejaculation and ejected the penis while more or less straight... No condom sleep off ....
Now she had no lesions/rashes on her entire body / skin / face/ mouth ....appeared hyegenic...
But now I am freaking out for the fear of HIV....
How about my chances of contracting it ....?
Please reply to it...

I am very anxious....
