NAAT Test

DUO test - positive for p24, negative for antibodies.

Hello,

Firstly, I would like to say thank you for all the help provided by this site! I'm sure its appreciated by all who visit. Here is my situation:

I engaged in unprotected oral sex about 4 months ago with a friend who claims he tested negative prior to our encounter. We had a few other oral sex encounters leading up to about 2.5 months ago. Within 2 weeks of our first encounter I had symptoms of HIV, which I know are nonspecific. I bought an at home "Oraquick" oral swab test to obtain some peace of mind 2-3 months after our first encounter (I tend to be a hypochondriac). Test results came back NEGATIVE. I still wanted to get tested at a clinic, so I did a few weeks later, which was about 4 months after initial exposure. It is also important to note I had a flu vaccination 3 weeks before my 4th gen test. Results came back as follows:

4th gen test: POSITIVE for P24 antigens.

Since that was positive they then preceded to "step 2" which is Antibody differentiation immunoassay. The paper the clinic gave me said this test "produces results faster than previously recommended western blot" - assuming its similar to western blot then..

Anyways, this test came back: NEGATIVE.

Now I await ANXIOUSLY for my NAT results to come back.

What is your take on this situation? I feel I have had more than enough time to produce antibodies and have non detectable P24 levels since those tend to diminish after 28 days. Any chance the flu vaccination played a role in this?

THANK YOU

Penis Rubbing To Vagina With Vagina Fluid Can Cause HIV

A Few days ago , I had sex with a SexWorker(Most probably She is from Philippine ) in Bharian . Only for one time and after that I am in fear of HIV.
First of all I don't know if that girl has HIV or not . I kissed her and also fingering then I try to put my penis without condom , but it's not happened as it was not as hard that will go smoothly then I try to make it hard with my hand and touches the vagina Lips with penis (foreskin pull back) where vagina fluid present, and within few mnts I ejected in top of vagina with rubbing my penis without insertion in fact not get time to insert . Her vaginal fluid touches my penis top my Urethra ..

I am still in a trauma. I rubbed my penis on the lips of a vagina . Vaginal fluid touches my penis top means urethra WITHOUT PENETRATION .

Is that any chances to get HIV+. Please help me out , I am very scared. What should I do now.

I did several test,
Rapid HIV 1/2/O Antibody Only after 33 days Its showing only one line in C (with fingertip blood)
Rapid HIV 1/2/O Antibody Only after 40 days Its showing only one line in C (with fingertip blood)
Rapid HIV 1/2/O Antibody Only after 42 days Its showing only one line in C with fingertip
Rapid HIV 1/2/O Antibody Only after 45 days Its showing only one line in C with fingertip
Then on 49 days : HIV 1/2 & P24 Combo(CMIA) from LALPathLab : 0.23 Non-Reactive.
Then Day 52 : HBsAg SeRUM (CMIA) from LALPathLab INDIA : Non-Reactive
Then Day 52 : HCV SeRUM (CMIA) from LALPathLab INDIA : 0.07 Non-Reactive
Then Day 52 : HIV 1 RNA QUANTITIVE (Real Time PCR) from LALPathLab INDIA : Target not detected Copies/ml
Then Day 56 : HIV 1/2 & P24 Combo(CMIA) from LALPathLab INDIA : 0.24 Non-Reactive.

As I work in GCC region so after 84 days I can only able to take rapid home test at 84 days ,should I go for that or my above test are conclusive ?

Please suggest ... I can't Sleep,can't work .
Please help me out to understand the result accuracy % and risk.
Should I continue sex with my wife without protection ? Am I free from HIV 1/2 ??

Provisionally non reactive

My husband was tested 3 different ways as per NACO guidelines and his hiv 1&2 abs & p24 is reactive where as immuno chromotagraphy and immuno dot assay for antibodies is non reactive. However final result interpretation shows he is provisionally non reactive. Does this mean he has HIV?

Concern of being infected but Negative tests!

1) Can hiv 1 pcr rna qualitative detect all subtypes/strains ( even some rare like e / crf / group 0 ) of hiv 1 at 14.5 weeks ?

2) can ID NAT ( viral screening for Rna/dna for hiv 1/2 detects all subtypes /strains ( even some rare crfs groups strains !?
What is diff between Nat or Id NAT at 124th day ?
3) I had several duo test eclia ELFA and chia method at 4 6 8 12 13 14.5 17 weeks ?

4) if no antibodies then antigens or viral rna DNa should detect ?

All were not detected! Only thing which made me worse was symptoms due to hiv or rain ? But excat post 3 weeks !

HIV+ Testing Question ( Sex worker on period)

Hi I got engaged in a vaginal sexual intercourse.
After were were done, turns out she was on her period.
I had a Condom on the whole time, but at the end there was blood on the condom and the area that was not covered.
I took the condom off carefully,ensuring no blood reaches the tip of my penis in anyway. Then I rinsed myself thoroughly.

After the incident
4th generation como test negative @ 6 weeks
HIV RNA (qualitative ) negative @ 4 weeks.

Should I get tested again?
