HIV Testing

HIV risk

I made a stupid error. I had unprotected vaginal sex with a sex worker in Germany. After a week I had pain in the thighs for 2 days. Then I got to 1.5 weeks and abdominal pain after 2 weeks, a weak bladder. Physician visit was negative. Normal blood count. urine normal values. No bacteria. Had abdominal pain and bladder problems to the 4th Week. After 5 weeks, I got a sore throat but had gone back after 1 week. After 7 weeks with a sore throat and tonsillitis geschollenen lymph nodes. Was at the doctor yesterday and got HIV test done. Conclusion reached Monday.
Is that the same course of an acute HIV infection? Have enormous fear and do not know how I can stand until Monday

Understanding the condition

Hi Monica Greetings of the day First of all let me brief you about the history:- My wife got tested for HIV in October 2008 - Result Negative I got tested for HIV in August 2011 - Result Negative I got tested for HIV on 8th October 2011 - Result Negative - the Doctor said he has used Elisa Technology, however I am not sure whether he used Rapid or Elisa. Because it was done by my Employer for the employment. I got tested for HIV on 10th January 2012 - Result Negative - Rapid I got tested for HIV on 15th January 2012 - Result Negative - Rapid I was vaccinated for Hepatitis B on 28/02/2009, 24/03/2009 and 26/08/2009 and for H1N1 I was vaccinated on 20/04/2011. And I do not have sex with anybody apart from my wife. Also the last time we had sex was in mid of November 2011. Right now Iam in the middleeast and waiting for my medical (blood test) to be through. They have taken my blood thrice, on 3rd January 2012, on 8th January 2012 and on 15th January 2012. The first time they said probably the sample might have lost, the second time when I say the blood test repot it mentioned HIV 1, 2 - some value of 1.74 and thereafter written reactive. Iam totally confused and worried. Can you please help me out in undestanding. Does my Vaccination has anything to do with it. Best Regards XYZ


I had relationship with a girl on DEC 13 and I am afraid that I am having AIDS what do you recommend?

Scared I have HIV

During the summer i had unprotected sex. Since then I have been worrying sick. I was tested about 10 weeks after exposure and my results came back negative. In December i noticed white legions on the inside of my cheeks. This terrified me as i assumed it was oral thrush and heard that people with HIV have this. Since then it has subsided but i still have white dots and areas on my cheek. I went to the doctor and he said it looks like it could be oral thrush or leukoplakia. He took swabs to see. Does having oral thrush or leukoplakia give me a good change of having HIV and should i go get re-tested?


i had a sex with a girl i have dought weather m infected to HIV are not so i take test after 3 months the result is inreactive and again i take a test after 1 month 21 days n the result is same does any chances to be positive when i take the test again after 1months 15 days plz ans me for this

my test after unprotected sex

my test : p24 combo at 14 day p24 combo at 34 day h1&h2 ab at 44 day p24 combo at 48 day all was negtive is that accuracy?? do i need any more test?


I had unprotected vaginal sex with a Thai bargirl on Nov 25. So far I have had 2 tests. First was a combo at 25 days ( negative) and Western Blot on the 10 Jan ,just over 6 weeks.Also negative. Last week I felt my lymph node on left collarbone about the size of a small pea, It can move but not sore. Also had the burning pins feeling over various parts of the body at different times. Had the usual sore throat and stress related issues as well( churning gut, lack of appetite and lost weight, 7kgs from 85 kgs.I realise the need to retest after 3 months, but was wondering your thoughts on accuracy of aformentioned tests at these times.
Thanks alot

Seroconversion time for HIV

If I got tested 5 weeks after possible exposure, and my results were negative, what are my chances of being in the clear, what is the percentage of this results being accurate?
thank you

Risk of transmission and other questions

Hello ,
I am Rodrigo. I write you because I have inquiries about risks of transmission of HIV, and also other questions. By October 31th, 2011, I had receptive and protected anal sex ( we used condom which did not break) with a guy whom has HIV (I realized of that the next morning of the intercourse). Also, I did fellatio to him (without condom), but there were not ejaculation, and when we were kissing ( eating a chocolate), I accidentaly bit his lip so I guess there was some infected blood that came into my mouth. I did not have any cut in my oral mucosa, but I was receiving treatment for peptic ulcers because of Helicobacter Pylori infection. He was diagnosed by June 20th, 2011 ( when his viral load was 76,500 copies/ml). Since that time, he is receiving HAART with lamivudine-zidovudine-Nevirapine twice daily, but he told me that there are some days ( at maximun 3) that he does not take the pills.
When I realized of him diagnosis, I went to a doctor who gave me profilaxis about 18 hours post-exposure with lamivudine-zidovudine, at 24 hours I received Efavirenz, and at 36 hours I received Lopinavir-Ritonavir. My question is : What is my overall risk of acquiring HIV, taking in consideration all that I have described above?.
I got an EIA 4th Generation at 33 days post-exposure, and 63 days post exposure ( 33 days post-PEP), both came back negative. How accurate are my results?. Do I need more testing?. I am planning to get another test within 1 month, What is the likelihood that my results would change?.
Thank you very much in advance.
