Hiv CMIA test negative 29 days after PEP completion

Hi,

I had sex with someone on Dec 20 and the condom broke in between. I only realized after finishing. I started PEP in less than 48 hours and took it for 30 days. I tested at 42 days after exposure (11 days after PEP completion) the test was negative. The test I used was HIV CMIA (p24 and Antibody). I took another test (HIV CMIA serum) at 60 days after exposure (29 days after PEP completion) which was also negative

My question is this:

1. Are these test results encouraging?
2. I am planning to take another test at 42 days after PEP completion (74 days after exposure). Have you ever seen post pep test at 28 days turn positive in the future?

I have read on the Internet that HIV 4th gen test are conclusive at 6 weeks by expert. So if my test at 74 days (10 weeks and 4 days after exposure or 42 days after PEP completion) is negative. Can I consider this conclusive?

Rapid antibody test at 8 weeks

I had a hiv rapid antibody test with a prick on my finger at 8 weeks after the exposure. I want to know if the results are reliable with this type of tests at 8 weeks or if the result can change at 3 months.
Thank you

Should i Re-test after negative results from an instant HIV test?

hi. i had a very short (less than 30 seconds) vaginal sex with a female sex worker. i did instant hiv test after 14 weeks and the result was negative. As i'm so stressed, i'm wondering if i need to repeat the test again or it's conclusive already?

Please I Beg for a kind reply (Anxiety at the top)

Dear Sir/Madam
this is my 3rd time positing to you but no reply at all. I am totally broken due to fear and anxiety of hiv please help me to sort out this.
I must admit that after an unprotected brief anal intercourse a second foolish mistake to do a test alere determine at home while i was not totally aware of the procedure. I did and a grey control line and a faint grey line appear after few minutes on the test strip i was shocked and assumed that my life has been ended up. after reading much articles and who website i came to know that this might be an invalid test as what i saw was a shadow and alere determine requires coloured line for reactive as many other experienced the same and WHO also stated in their practice module 9. since then i repeated test as follows

High top antibody rapid home test (non reactive at 7.5 week)
Alere determine done by me at 8.5 and 9 week non reactive

Since i know i should confirm my result i went to a health care provider in my area and tested with SD Bioline hiv 3.0 test non reactive at 10 week.

I tested again by myself at 13 week using alere determine hiv 1/2 nonreactive
at 15 week i went to a local community health care centre where they tested me with hiv antibody test rapid test non reactive
at 20 week i went to the same health care centre for the retest and they test me with alere hiv combo twice and reassure me that i am free from hiv.

Please help me to sort out my anxiety. i shall be thankfull

Oral sex and semen on eye, rash 9 days later.

I had a sexual encounter with a 70 yo gay male, although he said he was clean I know I should trust nobody, there was no actual penetration although I did rub my penis over his anus, I also performed oral sex to him but he didn't cum into my mouth but there was some pre cum as far I can remember, so around 5 seconds later he ejaculated, he put his genitals on my face and there was still some semen on his penis that rubbed my eye. Considering all these sexual activities, what's the risk of contracting HIV? Should I get worried? I'm actually worried now because 9 days later after the sex I'm getting a rash on my feet, thinking could be athlete's foot but now with the sexual encounter I had, I'm freaking out could be something else, as rashes are common symptoms for HIV . Last question, when is the best time to get tested? Should I wait a couple of months? Thank you very much.

Bad Situation

Hey guys and thanks for the help !! I got myself in a really bad situation and cheated on my girlfriend with a commercial sex worker while on a weekend away with some friends. She insisted on using a condom and so did I (she actually had a full bowl of them). I did not check the condom at the end. The was the first time I sleep with a sex worker and this was my second sexual partner ever. I felt horrible an admitted everything to my GF. We have talked everything through and I have never felt more confident about being and staying monogamous and I want to make sure I can continue this relationship in a fully healthy way. I just want to know If my test are fully reliable and I can can have no worry of putting my girlfriend at risk. These are the tests I took all of which were performed by a doctor or nurse:

4weeks- full std panel
6 weeks (44 days)- 4th generation HIV lab test, syphillis, Hep
6 weeks (44 days)- Insti rapid test
8 weeks (58 days)-4th generation HIV lab test, syphillis, Hep
9 weeks (67 days)- 4th gen HIV rapid test
10 weeks (69 days)- 4th gen HIV rapid test
10 weeks (72 days)-4th generation HIV lab test, syphillis, Hep
11 weeks (75 days)- 3rd gen HIV lab test
11 weeks (76 days)- Insti HIV rapid test
12 weeks (83 days)- 3rd gen HIV rapid test
12 weeks (86 days)- insti rapid test
13 weeks (94 days)- 3rd gen HIV rapid test
13 weeks (94 days)- 4th gen HIV rapid test
14 weeks (96 days)- 4th generation HIV lab test, syphillis, Hep

I know this amount of testing is sort of excessive (actually really excessive)...but I just really want to keep my partner as safe as possible. Thank you guys in advance

kindly,
Nathan
