acute Hep B PLZ HELP!!! Possible co-infection?

I have a Question, Several months ago ( 3 - 4 moths ) I was diagnosed with Hepatitis B; my current infection was very, but very symptomatic; That desease is already controlled by hematologist. My ALT levels are normal now, but the virus is still in blood, we are waiting for antibody response ( 6 moths of aware ) .
Since does that happened, I have being really scared about HIV possible coinfection.
I tested 5 times!!! ( as an obsessive ) , 1 was a rapid test 3th gen. and the another 4 were 4th. Generation Laboratory Test ( combo +p24 antigen). All of them each week since my last possible exposure ( oral sex receptive )

I don’t really know when or were matched the HBV ( but probably was more than 4 months ago) ; but Im really concern and my question is:

Does Acute, symptomatic and diagnosed Hepatitis B can delay, hide, or affect the HIV accuracy test?

DO you recommend re-test 6 months after my last, in this case, low-risk exposure? ( and that exposure wasn’t obviously when I watched HBV, cause the HBV window period).

Ill be really glad to receive your answers, believe me, Since the Hepatitis B was diagnosed my nervous are killing me, Im just 30 YO and was just diagnosed with hypertension about stress and anxiety. Believe me, I will never, never have sex without a condom :(

God bless you!

Pooled RNA test

Hi
Thanks for answering my question on chances of HIV when the condom broke condom during intercourse with a sex worker.
I will appreciate if you can address my following concerns :
1. Is there a place in Edmonton where I can get Pooled RNA test done.
2. should I wait 10 day or exactly 12 days after the exposure to get this test done.
3.are the results to this test conclusive of my HIV status or do I need to get another test done after 3 months.
4.I was reading other blogs on the situation where the condom broke during intercourse and the Dr.s have recommended the chances between 1/10000 and 1/1000 of getting HIV in this case. which is again very confusion.
Is there any substance to these statistics? if so then what are the chances?
Please advice I am really very scared.
Thanks

HIV

Can HIV show after 4 weeks of being exposed?

Low risk....

Hi I had a low risk sex. I had HIV ag/ab tests in 2,3,5,8 weeks and normal rapid test in 7 weeks and going again at week 11. Can i trust on my 8 week ag/ab test?

I had unprotected sex with a woman who had sex with many people before.

Sir, I am a 24 year old from India. I came to know that I had unprotected vaginal sex with one who used to have unprotected sex with many before 1 to 2 years. I came to know that She is now totally healthy and have no symptoms of HIV. Her partner is also physically fit. I had a HIV test just after 24 days of getting exposed. I tested negative. That was a 2nd generation HIV test . I have no symptoms after 35 days of getting exposed. Should I test again?. If I have to then after how many days? And does the time of intercourse have any relation with HIV transmission?

One month after expozure & accuracy of test result

First I thank you for this helpful Q and A website. Last 5 weeks, i had protected sex with a commercial girl. But i did not check the quality as well as the condition of condom after usage due to the fact i was a bit drunk and it was my first time. However, the condom had remained intact. I got scared for the whole month. I just did a blood test today, called rapid test for hiv infection ( in 20 mns i got the result). Result came out " negative" in the row the doctor ticked " Determine" while Serodia and Elisa column were left unmarked. But i don't know how accurate it is within the a month exposure? what does " Determine" mean and why they ticked on determine Not others like Elisa? should i do further test?

I do hope you can give me some clarification on that. I apologize if my writing is not comprehensive enough. Please don't mind this. I do appreciate your work.

Thank you.
