HIV Testing

Really Confused

Iam from india.
1 year and 8 months before i had unprotected oral sex with a guy.
 
And 1 year and 6 months before i had protected vaginal intercourse with a lady of unknown status. she was nearly 50 years old.after finishing my encounter while taking out from her i noticed that condom has strucked in her vagina.it was half inside and outside of her vagina. i dont know when its came out of my penis.
 
After 8 months of my post exposure i did hcv and hiv test.
 
i got hcv positive and hcv rna pcr test valve was less then 15 range. doctor told me there is a chance for me to cure automatically by my immune system because 15 to 25% of the people their immune systme cures hcv ...
and also i verified in internet that 15% of hcv infected peoples having chance to cure by their own body immunity  with in a year after infection. same thing happened to me.
by luckly last 4 months i got hcv negative and also my hiv test is negative.
 
After 1 year and 4 months i did HIVE elisa test and HCV elisa test both are negative.
 
Also at 1 year 3 months of my post exposure i did 
 
HIV 1&2(p24ag,ab/Serum, Elisa)- Non Reactive and
 
westorn blot for hiv1 & 2 - negative.all are not detected .
 
my question is .
 
1. will there is any chance in my case that hcv reproduced again??
 
2. will hcv affects hiv window period???
 
3. some of them telling hiv incubation period may be extened up to 3 to 5 years, its depends up on that person only..is that true??? any cases are there?
 
4. In what are all the cases,the seroconverion for hiv will delay and how long??

HIV testing

Hi there,
I was wondering how long after my sexual encounter should I wait before I get an HIV test? What's the safest amount of time I should wait, but also the best time to go to make sure I get 100% accurate results?
 

Risk?

Received oral sex with condom and received rimming. What is the risk? Do I needed to get tested? Thank you

Confusing Messages

I am confused over testing information provided to the public. I read on one of your posts that no HIV test is 100% accurate even after 3-6months on the other side the message is sent that testing after 3 months is not necessary providing no further exposures. Is there a slight chance that someone testing using antibody tests after 6 months may still test positive later on from the same possible exposure?
I have tested negative up to 7.5 months after a series of tests from one month after my last possible risk. I do not know the other person's status, however a month after the encounter I experienced some symptoms. Since then I have not put myself at risk. I experienced symptoms similar to what is described on many sites as early HIV symptoms, including weight loss,oral thrush,fatigue,mouth ulcers,and to date severe lower back pain. I really would appreciate clarification on the topic. I had one 4th generation test at the 6 month mark and all others were rapid tests, the last one at 7.5 months. Given the fact so many other people on this site experience similar conditions,is it possible that some individuals can actually take a longer time to sero-convert or are there strains of the virus that are not detectable with standard antibody tests? People need to be educated if this is possible in order to help stop the spread of the disease. Can a couple accept the information that a 3 month negative test is conclusive and enter a relationship after they both have a 3 month negative test, would this put them in the clear for HIV?
 
Thanks for your guidance.
 

Abtibiotics affects Hiv Combo test?

I have a negative Combo test (Abbott Architect Hiv Ag/Ab) at 14 days and 27 days after a suspecious intercourse. (Condom remained inside of a friend of mine. I had protected several intercourses during last 5-6 months with her. I know that she has some other partners).
I had an Uritria at 19 days, and recovered after 7 days of using antibiotics. When using the antibiotics there were some itching and redness in my groin area recovered with pomade. She claims that she does not have any symptom like uretria. I did not ask for her hiv status, but if she had infected, she would inform me. She may not know her hiv status if she is really infected.
That uritria and the other symptoms (lack of appetite, 2 kg loss in 2 weeks, night sweats) makes me crazy. I do not have any single minute not to think about hiv.
Today is 34th days. My question is how conclusive my tests are? Is there any possiblity for a false negative result because of antibiotics or window period.
Thank you.
