I had a protected sex with a sex worker, i´m sure the condom did not fail, but it last 30 minutes.
I´m worried of getting HIV.
So for peace of my mind I performed a PCR VIRAL LOAD TEST THAT COST ME 350$ AT 20 DAYS AND 27 DAYS POST EXPOSURE THAT CAME NOT DETECTABLE AND A DUO TEST 30 DAYS AFTER AND CAME NEGATIVE.
I REMEMBER SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE GOT TESTED 10 DAYS LATER FOR HIV AND ALL STI AND CAME NEGATIVE . I DON'T HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS SO FAR. SHOULD I WORRY?
I also get tested to Syphillis and came negative, I dont know why I put myself in this situation. please help-me.
I am planning to perform HIV screening after potential incident(oral sex) at 5 weeks.
I am planning to perform antigen (ICMA,Western-blot) test however if i am in window period this test may come negative so in addition to this test i am also planning to perform either HIV Pooled Nucleic Acid Test or RNA Quantitative, Real-time PCR.
Please advice which test should i take in addition to antigen test for near conclusive results. Please let me know difference between these two Pooled NAAT vs RNA Real-Time PCR test.
