Questions about oral

Pls help, I had unprotected oral sex with a girl(gave and received), after that I noticed I had bruises on my penis, really scared, I went and did rapid antibody test with the girl the next day and we both came back negative. Do I need another testing at 12 weeks?

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 test and allergies

Hello

Can allergies such as dust,feathers, and grass cause a delayed seroconversion? I don't know if they are considered auto immune disorders or immunodeficiency. I definitely know they are caused by overreaction of the immune system to a harmless substance.

MY RISK AND TEST RESULTS

I had a sex with a Cuban csw with a condom. I did not check to see if it had a hole, tear, or broken. after a weak I came down with a high fever, sore throat, and well affected tonsils. I became alarmed and took the fallowing test.

week2 (antibody test)
week5 (4th gen test)
Week7 (4th gen/rna)
Week10 (blood rapid test)
Week13 (blood rapid test)

Fist question is what are the chances that the rna test was a false negative because I might be an elite controller? and have not develop antibodies, although I heard these cases are ab positive, but I could be delaying the seroconversion because of my allergies.

Second can I have some type of supervirus that might of gone undetected such as crfs?

Third Does the 6 months complete window period only apply when testing alone for antibodys?

Fourth most ID specialist in my area test for one year. is this because some people might go undetected for so long or just because extreme conservatism?

Thank you and god bless

Possible HIV exposure??

Dear Dr. Please help.

I recently had a condom break situation. I had safe sex with a pilot at night and while passing my stool I saw some drops of blood (I realized the sex was rough but safe)by next day everything was fine, no more blood or anything similar.

I met another guy who is a flight attendant and during sex the condom broke, i didn't realize until I disengaged myself from his penis (I was the receptive partner) . He hadn't come..when he threw the condom away I went to cross check if everything was fine but the condom was broken (I assume it broke three minutes ago when i was sitting on him, previously I checked the shaft had condom on) and ever since then have been living a nightmare... I asked him if he was negative and he said he was but I do not trust him as he tried to enter unsafe the first time..
I do have herpes though the first and last outbreak was in february 2015 on my lips. i had syphilis in past which i do not have anymore after I took penicillin shots. All my VDRL tests (4 in last 9 months) have come negative

It's been three days now and waiting until 6 weeks seems like waiting for a decade. I have read 100's of hiv forums to asses risk ..

Please if you can provide a risk assessment and if there's any test that I can go through before 6 weeks. I am hiv negative as of june 2015.

Additional info: The tip of condom must be broken..I am not sure if it broke during sex or while the guy was taking the condom out
I live in India where the treatment of positive people is appolic. You can't get a job because every organization puts you through mandatory health checkup..You can't date anyone because the extremely few Gay men who are out would run miles away from a positive person...I know nothing can be done of what has happened...please help me with assessment.
