HIV Testing

Very stupid situation

Hello
I had an unprotected sex with a HIV+ girl 3 months ago and i made a stupid decision, I started to take unprescribed HAART med from day 1
Now it’s been 2 months I’m suffering from armpit, neck and groin lymphopathy
Tested negative ELISA and NAAT both out of window periods(day 80-85)
What have I done? Am I gonna die?
I think I would never seroconvert like this since the med is keeping viral load blew detectable line so the immune system won’t produce enough antibodies. The virus is replicating in my lymph nodes and eats up my CD4s continuously
What’s next?

Need Some Guidance Please

Hi , I am a guy from India , I did domething stupid . Got very drunk and had sex with a call Girl . Let me elaborate that bit here . She put a condom on me . I think it was okay . She got on top and gave 10-12 thrusts post which I got on her and gave 4-5 thrusts . There was no semen which was out . I was too drunk and not interested to do it so she gave me a hand job . That did not do the trick so I got the condom off and mastrubated myself . At the time I think the condom was intact . It did not seem broken or torn . I have no idea about her HIV status let alone viral load . This happened 3 days back and now I am scared . I have read all I could online , which has reassured me that chances of HIV with Condom are very less unless the condom tears .One thing to mention here is that I think her virgina was dry ( On account of her not being emotionally attached and everything ) . I will get the 28 day HIV 1 and 2 Antibody done but every second is killing me . All I want to know is that what are my odds .

symptoms for 2 months, do I have HIV?

I had protected sex 2 month ago and I know its protected and hiv can't be passed this way but during the intercourse I heard the condom pop but after ejaculation when I took out I couldn't see it break but since then after 10 days I had fatigue and diarrhea which lasted 1 month and swollen lymph nodes on my neck which lasted about 5 weeks and my main problem is some mouth lesions or ulcers inside my mouth in the area between the wisdom tooth and the tongue and I get sore throat till now that come and go and also night sweats now I know I used a condom but these symptoms have no other explanation I made cbc which was normal t3,t4 were normal also negative for epv and mono and negative at 27 days for syphlis and gnorrhea.

I went for an hiv antibody test at 27 days after the exposure which came back negative but I don't know what generation it is but its name is hiv 1,2 antibody test
and also tested negative at 47 days using the same test they took blood from the vein not finger prick
so what are my chances that I am hiv positive and are these mouth problems an ars symptoms that stay for this long?

Recreational drug use affecting HIV testing?

Hi,

I had my last unprotected exposures 2 years ago. I tested negatvie one year later, 3 days ago via Oraquick negative and today received 4th gen negative result. I am a chronic marijuana smoker (3,4 times a week) and I am wondering if my weed smoking habits can cause false negative results? I have smoked marijuana the day before my last HIV test (10 hours before test). I was told by my doctor that he thinks it does not impact HIV test results.

Best,

HIV infection from home based test

Hi

A few days ago I bought a HIV kit. there is a needle in the pack. I pierced my finger with that needle and put my blood in the kit. I'm afraid the needle was infected with the virus. Is it possible to get HIV and hepatitis with needle?

Accuracy of Point of Care HIV Test

How accurate is a rapid antibody test at 24 days post exposure? Also, what are the chances of a negative rapid antibody result at 24 days changing at 90 days or 12 weeks assuming no further exposure to HIV.

i can not consider my status

hi
briefly :(after exposure)
- since day 21: had very painful and slightly swollen armpits, chest and groins lymph nodes
- since day 46: had all HIV symptoms like chronic fever, sore throat, joint and muscle pain, bruises, fatigue, white coated tongue
- a negative PCR by day 31
- negative 4th gen ELISA at days 24, 40, 53, 60, 69 and ELFA by day 73

virologist is confused seems there is no other condition with all HIV symptoms together
what should I do now?

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,
