I have a very complicated situation and would love any thoughts.
Two weeks ago, I had an incident where the I had sex with 3 men, as a bottom, and used a condom, but don't know the status of the individuals. I also don't know if the condoms were put on correctly (as it was dark) and one of the individuals came in me (I don't believe the condom broke but not sure).
So two days after the incident, I started on PREP (I couldn't get PEP) and then 5 days later, I went and got tested. The Antigen, Antibody test were both Negative but the clinic also did an HIV RNA quant test that showed up Positive with a viral load amount of 294. At this point, I had been on PREP (Truvada) for 5 days.
5 Days later, I got another RNA Qual (Super sensitive so from what I was told, detects viral load of <20) and that was negative. I also re-run the antibody and it was negative.
My doctor is hoping that the initial RNA was a false positive (due to the context) and because the initial viral load was so low, but also uncertainty because of being on PREP and perhaps that bringing down the viral load prior to the test.
Any thoughts? Sorry, it's a bit convoluted of a scenario but would appreciate any counseling.
How accurate is HIV-1 RNA after 45 days of exposure? Thank you for the response.
hey how r u i have asked this question but didt get reply so i m asking again that my exposure is 15 month older and at this time is EARLY DETECTION RNA QUALITATIVE TEST is reliable or it is good only in first few weeks pls reply
Can I consider HIV RNA test at 45 days conclusive? Many say it is conclusive at 28 days. Is it true? Can I relay on that?
You people are doing great job. Quick response regarding my issue will be much more appreciated.
Yesterday night I was walking in hospital ground where they have grown grass.where patients relax and sometime people play game there. While I was walking a sharp needle (syringe)poke my 2nd toe. It bleed a little bit. I don't know from how long it was there but it may be 5 to 10 mints fresh or it might be there since morning. There was a little bit blood in the syringe. Now I am thinking that someone might have intentionally thrown it here because people walk in grass bare foot. What are the chances if it has been used by HIV positive person 5 mints before I step on it. Kindly reply. Should I start PEP ? Can I be infected in this way ? What are the chances of getting HIV in this way?
After unprotected vaginal sex with a HiV Positive sex worker , I had taken 28 days PEP medication (started after 56 hrs). Developed lyph swelling at right armpit and below jaw from 18 th day of exposure. Lymph below jaw is very hard and painless and have night sweats regularly. Today 38th day after exposure ( 10 the day after pep completion) I have developed more number of lymph swelling at neck and groin area. Mean while I have tested DNA Pcr qualitative on 8 the day after pep and result obtained as ' NOT DETECTED'.
I am in a tremendous stress. Don't know what to do. Please help some one what should I do next to obtaine my status as early as possible.
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.

Should I continue sex with my wife without protection ? Am I free from HIV 1/2 ??
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?
