Hope I can get your opinion on this.
My exposure happened in the 2nd week of Jan 2016 and 3 days later went to see a doctor who prescribed Truvada for 3 months. I finished my doses in 20th April and 2 weeks later (5th May) went for an ELISA test, got a negative result. Problem is, I've experienced symptoms such as cold sore, fever and night sweats in the last 2 weeks. Is there a chance that Truvada delayed antibodies production by almost 5 months, because my last rapid test is only 1 (28th May) day ago, and I still got a negative result. I'm just so worried.
Hi!, an 84 days test (chemiluminescence) after PEP (Truvada) is trustworthy?.
Hello, I a man and I have a few questions. Just a day ago I kind of gave a protected oral sex for 10-20 seconds. It is happened accidentally and now I freaking out; guy put a condom on his dick and I touched it by my lips and sucked a little, after I just run away because I did not like it and honestly it makes me feel very uncomfortable. So my questions is:
1. Do I need to go to my doctor for asking a PEP!? (It is happened just a 24-26 hours)
2. Because of the dark room, I am not sure about if he use condom properly? (I mean, did not touch his penis by wrong side of condom and after wear it)
3. I do not this guy and really worry about health now; everything happened very quick, his penis was in condom and he did no ejaculate in my mouth. So, what is the percentage of me getting me HIV!?
P.S: I am very appreciate for your website, it gave me a lot of good information! Please help me with my situations, I am very worry and freaking out.
I had protected sex with csw. Their is no condom brokage or leakage or slip. Immediately after 24 hours i went to doctor. Doctor told if condom didnt broke then their is no need for PEP.
But due to my fear and anxiety doctor prescribed PEP.
He prescribed me too medicines one is ratlegravir and another one is a combination of two medicines namely lamivudine and tenofovir.
Are these medicines are effective ?
What are the foods I should take during pep time ?
I have protected sex is their any possibilities for hiv ?
I had a sex with an unknown escort girl but, it was protected.
since I don't know that which kind of condom she used and it was a good one or not, I'm concern to for HIV infection. is it possible HIV transmission has happened for me? or is it possible that condom failed during sex and I didn't know that?
should I take any PEP pill or do HIV test?
please i had sex with two condom worn but discovered one was broken but the other intact and tested the girl immidaitely and discover she was positive. and not aware of it . i went the nxt day and started pep with two combination [lamuvudin and tenofovir} but 5days later was told by a pharmacist that 2 combination from same class is not protective ; then immidaitely added effaverenz to it . is 8th day today and am so worried cos of the two combination i started with and introducing the last one after 72hours. pls help me
Over seven weeks ago, I had a high risk (broken condom/anal sex) with a HIV + person, since then I have experienced a myryad of symptoms until today, however I have tested negative in three occasions, at three weeks (Rapid test), four weeks ( P24 antigen test) and almost six weeks (5.5 weeks) ELISA HIV 1/HIV2. I know my tests are not considered to be conclusive , but are they a good indication? I am not a IV drug user, nor a chemo/cancer patient.
I had an exposure almost 8 weeks ago. I took PEP but stopped after only 4 days because it was a low risk exposure. How long after stopping PEP can I take a RNA test that will be 100% accurate?
Thank you so much for your time
i had insertive sex with a prostitute. the condom broke during the process. i immediately withdrew and cleaned my penis. after 15hrs i was prescribed pep for 30 days. i never had any side effects except for tiredness and sleeping early. after finishing pep i was test with rapid test method and the results were negative. two days after i had one sore on the tongue and itching in the groin area. there was a flu outbreak in the family and i had a soar throat for two days and no coughing. could this be a sign of pep failure? if i go for another test six weeks after exposure can the results be assuring?
What will happen if I took 1 Atripla after "no risk"needle exposure and then stopped it, because of side effects. I used Atripla 6 months ago as pep for a high risk needle exposure.(all 28 days- tested neg after 6 months) This time I only got pricked by a single used lancet after a patient pulled her hand away and the lancet poked me instead. Thank you for answering I'm scared the Atripla may give me HIV now.
