I had a hiv rapid antibody test with a prick on my finger at 8 weeks after the exposure. I want to know if the results are reliable with this type of tests at 8 weeks or if the result can change at 3 months.
thanks for your engagement and help, regarding insecure individuals in this regard - just like me. I slept with a Girl twice (protected), received oral (no visible blood), handjob (doubt there were vaginal fluids on her hands) and there was some unprotected contact between my penis and her vagina (no penetration, but rubbing of the top of my penis against her vagina). Do any of these actions require testing/pose a risk? Especially the latter?
I really appreciate your feedback. Thanks!
I have been circumcised 3 months back. I went to this massage place and at the end she gave a hand relief, later I noticed there is an extra skin which got torn and small blood has come out. The lady also has small cut on her hand, Two weeks later I am experiencing Fatigue, Fever, Swollen nodes(pain comes and goes). I have tested -ve at 18 day mark, but my symptoms have been there for 2 weeks now. I am scared to death now.. I am really worried, I feel like killing myself... Please advise am I at a greater risk because I am circumcised and the skin which tore was under pennis glan ?
On 31st Jan I met with a lady and unaware aware of the HIV status of her. That day all that happened as below
1. No penetration or intercourse to her vagina by me.
2. I fingered her vagina and my fingers got wet with her vaginal fluid. And without washing my hand I did musterbate.
3. She licked my penis but it was not a blowjob. Without condom.
4. We both sucked each others nipples.
Is there any chance of me getting HIV if she was infected?
Is there any chance of getting infection if she licks on newly healed wounded portion but without blood?
Is there any chance of getting infection if vaginal fluid comes in contact with newly healed wounded portion but without blood?
Further, on 7th feb,
1. I got my right ear swelling with pain inside the ear. Left ear is normal.
2. None of the lymph nodes are found swelling.
3. Gradually the swelling is gone and now the earlobe got little bit swelling not noticeable easily.
4. On 13th Feb night I feel little swell or numbness in my lower lip.After two days its reducing and only visible if one looks very closely.
5. On 14th Feb I feel little swell or numbness in my upper lip. Its only visible if one looks very closely.
Does these indicate HIV infection?
I have done the HIV Test today i.e. 15th Day (SERUM HIV(I & II)AG/AB( Combo)
Method : Chemiluminescent Immunoassay) and the result is non reactive. I had data of my past HIV test done as a part of my routine test in 2016. It was the same method. At that time the result was 0.09 S/CO. Now it is 0.24 S/CO. It is increasing.
Does it mean that I am infected and antibodies are growing gradually?
Do I need another test for Conclusion or this can be treated as Conclusive Test?
so about a month ago i hooked up with another guy. we mainly just kissed, and his penis was in my mouth but there was no cum that i recall that i had in my mouth. when he cummed it got on the skin on my leg, but i saw no cuts on any kind on it. my question is this a risk at all with cum on the skin with cuts?
7 months ago, I had two one night stands with two different girls( a bout a month apart) while I was in Texas. Now I'm worried that I might have HIV. I don't recall cuts on my penis and both gave me a blowjob and I only fingered them. I already had a test done two months ago and it reads that I'm HIV negative but it also said that the reason that it read negative was that it was too soon( 6 months was recommended). I feel fine except for this Streep throat that has reoccurred twice in the past three months and severe anxiety as the result of my fear. Could reoccurring Streep throat be an indicator of HIV infection? Do I need to go back and get tested to put this to rest?
After 30 days of unsecured sex, p24, pcr rna test negative and 65 days after that, p24, pcr rna test negative tha pls i am safe ya no else other test
Thank you for all of these useful information in regards of STDs. I have a query that is eating me alive. I am hypochondriac, so you can imagine how stressful it is. I had one night stand with a man with unknown status. We were kissing passionately for about 20-30 seconds, and I noticed that he had bleeding gums. We stopped the kissing and I spit on the tissue to check if I have it as well, luckily I did not have it at that very moment. Right after that I examine my mouth and gums and I noticed that my gums started to bleed as well - not excessive amount, just around one teeth, that I rinsed and bleeding disappeared right away. We did not kiss any more, however I received rim job after that (at the time of rimming, his gums were not bleeding any more). I would really appreciate If you can tell how big this risk of transmission is. Thank you a lot for your time and effort to help us.
I was on the bottom and other guy was playing and rubbing his penis on my anus, my anus was lubed with spit and had lot of his pre-cum around my anus. I am extremely worried about this incident, we stopped immediately after him inserting his penis tip into me twice.
Please let me know what should i do ? PEP warranted ?
He said he is safe HIV neg. but i don't if i should trust.
extremely worried, please help! Thanks
I know it’s stupid but due to lack of knowledge I started taking PEP 3 WEEKS(not days) post exposure and once I considered what I’ve done, I made my second mistake, I continued it for more than 2 MONTHS!
Now 7 months pasts from the day 0 and I’m totally frustrated..
I’ve tested regularly through this time, monthly NAAT and DUO tests.
I guess I can not consider my HIV status because the PEP has suppressed the viral load and the immune system had enough time to develope few amount of antibodies as an answer to low viral load. And due to presence of antibody the virus never had a chance to rebound. Probably that’s why both RNA and antibody levels are below the detection line.
What you may recommend?
