HIV transmission through nasal endoscopy

Hi, I went for a check-up on 2/19/16 and the doctor used a rigid nasal endoscope on me to exam up my nose. I remember seeing the flexible scope sitting in a blue water and the other one (which he used on me) was sitting in a tube without water. I saw him take the scope not in the water, wipe it down with a tissue and then examine me. After using it on me, he then put it in the water.

I assumed it was clean before he used it on me, but now I have a low-grade fever and dry throat. I am wondering if it wasn't clean and if anything was transmitted to me. I pray nothing was, but because of my fever I am worried.

I will get myself tested but am very, very worried since I have symptoms of fever. Is it too soon to get test this week?

INSTI rapid hiv test, 30 days after potential exposure

Dear Sir or Madam,

thanks for reading my question.

I did INSTI rapid hiv test on (Feb. 24), 30 days after potential exposure to hiv virus (Jan. 26).

The result is negative.

I wonder to know that whether this result is accurate or not.

When should I do the rapid test again?

My appreciation!

follow-up query re: initial Q with title educated information

The information provided by the Aids Vancouver helpline through volunteer Christina was very informative and helpful. Somehow it it gave me peace of mind. Yes, I would still go for a test, just to be clinically conclusive about it. I am planning to have the test after 30 days, just to be sure that it is included in 21-25 days window period. And then I would have another on the 3rd month. In light, what tests would you recommend me to have? Does this 4th generation test cover not only HIV screening but also for other STIs? If not, what test should I seek? Another is what type of doctor should I visit for these tests?

Thanks

HIV rapid test and time-windows

hello,

I took a rapid test at the 6 month mark since last exposure and tested negative, however it may have been 5 months (to play it safe). Is my result still negative or is more testing required? The test I took had two indicator lines, here's a picture of the test I believe: http://www.reportageonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/rapid-tests2.jpg I believe it was the combo but not sure, but It looked very similar to the one in the middle because it had a baseline on top and two indicators on the bottom.

The CDC states on their website that at the 3 month mark a rapid test is 97% accurate, this has made me question my results, I read on your website that 3 months is definitive, but the CDC states otherwise, is their information outdated? Is the remaining 3% attributed to the PEP, hep c treatments, and chemo? And if so can you please link a source or explain the 3% margin, I'm feeling some anxiety over it.

Thank you for your time
