Rapid/Point of Care Test

is my result conclusive?

 
 
Hello AIDS Vancouver..
my last exposure was 13 months ago (september 2011).. I've done 2 home rapid tests twice and the results are the following:
1) EZ Trust Rapid HIV Antibody test - 16/08/2012 -- negative2) OraQuick Advance HIV Antibody test (oral fluid) - 5/10/2012-- negative
are my results conclusive that I'm HIV negative? I'm still worried because I have white lesion at the lateral sides of my tongue which look like Oral Hairy Leukoplakia.. 

oral sex

hi,i gave blowjob to a man that i found later is HIV positive.the man ejaculated in my mouth .after 11 days i developed fever,101 f, productive chest, stuffy nose and extreme fatigue. it takes about 4 days to get rid of the fever.regarding the fact that during the time of performing the oral sex i had some fresh cut in my moth can i ask you , are these symptoms related to HIV symptoms or not.

False negative

At 5 and a half to 6 weeks after a possible exposure to HIV I took the early detection HIV antibody test and it came back negative. At 3 and a half months, I was taking an antiretroviral antibiotic (zpac) for a sore throat (day 2 of antibiotics) and took a rapid HIV test and it again came out negative. My question is this, could the antibiotic I was taking alter the outcome of the test? At approximately 4 and a half months I feel as if I may be having symptoms of HIV. Spot on tonsil, night sweats (only 2 nights in a row thus far)...but it may be my nerves getting to me. Should I re-test? Thank you for your time...

Reactive Hyperplasia result of excision biopsy of lymph node

Hi, I am 28 Male from the Philippines and I am really worried about my lymph excision biopsy results which indicated "reactive hyperplasia". I think this result is most common with HIV positive patients, or is it not?
My last unprotected sex was October 2011, receptive anal. I had Abbott Determine HIV 1 and 2 last March 2012 and September 2012 and both were negative. I just want to be sure if these results were already conclusive, or do I still need to be tested anytime soon?
Thank you and God bless!

Can I get HIV from a finger prick 3 hrs prior?

 
Hello, I'm embarrassed to ask this question but I'm worried & would be much relieved if it was answered.
Yesterday a girl stood up and there was menstrual blood on my chair she'd been sitting in, she didn't notice it & I only noticed it as she was leaving. I had more clients coming in so I quickly grabbed an anti-bacterial wipe, I used a tissue to hold the wipe & wiped the blood from the chair. I then disposed of it in the bathroom & thoroughly washed my hands. I'm pretty sure the blood never touched my skin & it was a few (maybe 3 or 4) minutes that the blood was drying on the chair. I also do not think there is a chance this person has the virus. I'm just overly concerned because I am 7 months pregnant & have gestational diabetes. I had pricked my hand several times in the morning but it had been about 3 hrs since the last prick.
Are these finger pricks considered "open wounds" or would they have been closed by then. 
How long does it take for a finger prick to close?
Sorry to ask such silly questions but being pregnant I stress out about everything & really don't need something else to worry about... please help.
Thank you

need solution for my questin

This is vinoth from india. Three months before I had sex with sexworker. After completing the sex I get back my pennis from her pussy. At that time only I come to know I lost my condoms in her pussy.  Exactly I dont know when my condoms removed and went to her pussy. After 90 days I took hiv tridot hiv spot method test. That is non reactive. But still I am confused. I dont know I am safe or not. Tridot method is accurate method to detect hiv in 90 days? Is I need to take some other test? I am safe or not? Plz answer my question. Waitting for your kind response...
