HIV Testing

Accuracy and Window Period of 4th Generation HIV Screening

i,

I had exposure (mutual masturbation and titsex) with a sex worker two years ago. No oral, vaginal or anal sex took place. Oil was used on my penis and her breasts for lubricating. Half a year later I received a HIV screening (4th gen) along with my physical, which came back non-reactive. Should I retest due to possibility of false negative? I have read that in one case this person seroconvert after 4 years, although with obvious AIDS related symptoms

HIV transmission through a deep kiss with biting and blood

Hello,

Could you please estimate the risk of my situation? When I first had (protected) sex with my partner, they told me they were recently screened and did not have any STI. We then had protected sex on multiple occasions. Turned out, my partner was not screened for HIV in a long time, those recent tests did not include it. Although we had protected sex, several times there was deep kissing and biting involved. The bites were quite strong and most likely had broken the skin inside the mouth for both of us. I remember the bites caused a bleeding in my mouth, I am not sure if my partner had any bleeding inside their mouth. Should I get tested for HIV?

Thank you

how safe is it to have sex if viral load is unknown but taking medicine regularly and indulge in safe sex

hello Dr,

Recently in last week i had a sexual act with a HIV positive person , it was brief encounter which lasted hardly for two min. I had used a condom which i am pretty sure did not slip or break and neither it was a rough sexual intercourse as i had foreplay before indulging in the act , I even ejaculated inside her wearing the condom.

i love this women and had known her since last 15 years but this is the first time i had sex with her. In past i had oral sex where she had perform on me i took the test time but it was negative . I know well that she takes her medicine regularly but she has not taken her viral load test in last 10-11 months . i have told her to take the test in every six months but she gets upset on reminding her about her condition and that i hurt her by making her fill guilty that i might get HIV , i don 't want to lose her at this moment .

My question are.... 1} do i have to worry of the transmission if we are both unaware of the viral load even after performing safe sex .

2} is it safe to have sex with condom even if she does'nt take her viral load test but is on proper medication regularly .

3} do i need to worry and take a test after this recent sexual act.

4} how safe is it wearing a condom and getting into a sexual act in missionary position

Reactive Point of Care Test Result

Hello,

I did a HIV test after I found out that my partner slept with someone unprotected 6 months ago. I tested positve for Chamidia and for the HIV it was negative but reactive so I need to get antother test over a month. I'm really scared to have it now. What are the changes that I've got HIV? I'm on a antibiotic for athlete's foot for 3 months. Can this also influence the test to be reactive? Or what can be causes to have a reactive negative outcome?
I'm sleeping now for more than a week badly because of this and am verry scared.

Accuracy of Point of Care HIV Test

Hey guys,

I would like to start with the thing that I am on PreP and taking it every day. 3 weeks ago or maybe a bit less I had unprotected sex and starting from Saturday (4th day today) I've been having a severe headache that never had before and some fever not higher though than 37.8C.
I am on painkillers right now and I would say it works quite alright. I tested my blood for HIV by HIV DUO Quick HIV1/HIV2 BIOMERIEUX yesterday and got results to be negative today. I asked the consultant about my situation taking into consideration the fever and severe headache whether it's confirmed that these symptoms were not caused by the conversion just by smth else since I believe that if someone has a conversion going on in their bodies with above-mentioned symptoms it means that a viral load is high and it would be easily detected by the machine. The consultant asked me to contact my doctor since he was not sure about that. I am out of the country now and I've got no possibility to do so. Could you please help me with that?
P.S. I stopped taking PreP on Saturday, the day I felt bad.

After having sex is there any posibility to know immediately whether i have HIV Positive or not?

Hi, Recently i had a sex with sex worker for two times in an half an hour. I was Used the Condom, I am sure(99%) it was not broken but when i am doing sex of second time at some point little drop of blood were there on the condom. It was her little drops. later i have changed the condom. I wear the condom properly but during sex its come out from my Dick. Now my doubts are

1) If she had HIV+ is there any chances that will inject into my body?

2) When i ask her 3 times she told that after the sex she got her periods.

3) When i ask her about her HIV+ She told that She don't have HIV..But Little bit doubts are There

4) After having the sex is there any possibility to know the HIV Status whether positive or Negative?
