Sharps Container

Hello,
Thank you so much for your work! I would just like to ask one question. I recently got a rapid HIV test done. At the end, the nurse threw away the contents of the test (lancet, unit membrane, her rubber gloves) into the sharps container with her bare hands. She then gave me a bandaid for the spot on my finger where she drew the blood. I am worried about the fact that the sharps container contained the parts of other people's tests (this was a point-of-care setting where people came in to get their tests within fifteen minute time slots) that might have had HIV-positive blood on them. Is it possible for that blood to somehow get into my bloodstream from the bandaid (that the nurse touched) through the open prick from the lancet? Am I worrying needlessly?
Thank you very much!

HIV dna pcr

Notification and timing of test

Hi. I had a test 12 days ago. If there was a problem who would contact me, would it be public health or the doctor at the clinic? Also, how long do test results take? If I haven't heard from anyone, when can I assume that all is okay

Conclusive or more testing?

 Ok so I will try and make it short. Jan.28 th I has unprotected sex with a HIV + man. ( I did not know this then) 3 days later i told my boyfriend that I cheeted. We were however separated somewhat. Anyways we had unprotected sex. 2 weeks later I came down with a horrible stomach ache, loose stools, migranes, sinus infection, really tired, skin irritation and sensitivity. Sore throat and a tongue that looked ( not right) yellow white curdle appearance. So I took a 30 day, 63 ,93, 5 months, 7 months and 9 month test all antibody test one oral at 5. 7 and 9 month were sent out to ACL lab ( no idea what generation) my boyfriend 2 weeks later was complaining of headache, Loose stool, lost about 10 lbs of muscle. And i feel like something is just not right. I read that 6 months for known exposure in the USA (where i live) but there have been reported cases of longer! I can't afford a viral load test . What do you think testing done and symptoms are nothing? I still have a very sore throat, migranes, ear infection, and crazy fungus stuff today ! So annoying it's a constant reminder something is wrong!! All doctors say they see it looks like infection but dont know !? Ent said he didn't know ? Please what do u think?? Thank you

negative DNA PCR and duo test at 4 and 8 weeks

Hi. I am a 26yo male who was involved in receptive anal sex about 8 weeks
ago. A condom was used but 4 weeks after the encounter I noticed a creamy
build up on my tongue I went to the GP and explained the situation. A HIV duo
test as well as a DNA pcr were performed. Both results came back as negative.
However the thrush persisted. At 8 weeks post exposure both duo and pcr tests
were repeated and both came back negative yet I still have oral thrush?
 
What does this mean? Thrush is a stage 3 defining illness and I have it
despite negative results at 4 and 8 weeks. Is it possible there tests are
missing infection or is my thrush caused by an unrelated condition?
Confused. Please help....
