HIV RNA Test Reliability at 13-14 Days

Hi,

I had unprotected oral sex with a person of unknown HIV status about three weeks ago (both giving and receiving). One week after exposure, I had a 4th generation test that came back negative. 13-14 days after exposure I had a HIV 1 RNA, QN PCR test with sensitivity to <20 (copies/mL) that came back Not Detected.

At three weeks, I am now feeling a bit off -- slight fever, body aches, red blotchy palms, some unexplained rashes on my arm.

Can I take any comfort in my HIV RNA test?

Also, I want to get tested again soon (the anxiety is killing me). Should I take a 4th Generation test, or try to take another HIV RNA test?

Am i at HIV risk?

Hi, i've been having a headache for about 2 days know i dont know if it is lack of sleep or not because i always have a headache when i sleep for about 6 or 7 hours. I've never had sex with anyone or used anyones blood or any of the other stuff. i Masturbate alot and something accidently Masturbated with toothpaste. i dont know if i am at HIV risk or not. Am i?

At HIV risk

I've not have sex with anyone. i read about aids about 6 months ago and how it is caused. i usually masterbate alot and accidently applied toothpaste couple of times to my penis, i've been having a headache for about a week and nothing else. it was usually when i woke up after sleeping for about 6 or 7 hours am i at HIV risk?

What could be happening to me?

Hello and thank you in advance for any review or answer!
About exactly 81 days ago I had given unprotected Oral to someone whose status I am currently unaware of. Until recently I hadnt't thought anything about the encounter until I started to develope flu-like symptoms 4 days ago that I was begining to believe was Seroconversion but while sick I went and took a Rapid Blood test and my results came back negative. So I am so confused, is the result that I recieved valid? Or did my sickness somehow impair the results of the test. What happens when someone going through seroconversion takes and hiv blood test? Any help would be truly appreciated and help settle this unease.

Unprotected Oral sex

A month ago I performed unprotected oral on this guy that I met online, we did not have anal sex and he didnt cum in my mouth. However, right at 4 weeks, the 28th day,about an hour or 2, after my dinner I started to vomit and had diarrhea(watery tools). I felt better in the morning but then I went to the hospital and got injection. I am fully recovered in about 3 days.
My question is am I at risk of contracting hiv? Are the vomit and diarrhea I experienced were the symptoms?

HIV symptoms occurred at 4 weeks, but duo test was negative at 6 weeks. Confused, please help.

Dear All,

First of all, thank you for your concerns and interests on this question.
I'd like to ask all of you several questions about HIV symptoms.

I took 4th duo test at 6 weeks after unprotected vaginal intercourse, and test result was negative. Additionally, I took RT-PCR at 3 weeks and it was also negative.
But such symptoms as one lymph node swollen on my front neck with sore throat and muscle pain around armpit have started from 4 weeks, until now. Fortunately, I have no fever and rash.

I believe that my duo test is almost conclusive for HIV-1, but have some doubt for HIV-2. My questions are as follows ;

(1) Is there any possibility of HIV-2 related to my symptoms?
(2) Is Lymph node swollen symptoms occurred mostly like persistent generalized?
(3) How much can I believe my HIV-2 negative result for my duo test?, I don't think that I can not believe 100% for HIV-2 at 6 weeks test negative result.

Your sincere opinion would be valuable for me. Thanks in advance.

High Risk, need help.

Hello, i am a male 22 years of age. I recently had a couple of high risk exposures, which being the last exposure was 5 months ago. i went to my pcp, worried i could of possibly contracted hiv. I got tested at 7 weeks of last exposure. It was the 4th generation test, and was negative. But i tested positive for hsv-1, and on my sheet my wbc was high, she didnt mention it to me. I felt relieved then started worrying again and got another test done at 80 days. Also negative and was 4th generation test. I wake up everyday and worry that i still some how contracted it... After about a month of the last test i found 6 brown circles on my stomach so i went to my pcp that day. i showed her and told her my left tonsil has been swollen for a couple weeks i just decided to tell her sense i was there already. She said it was ringworm, and said it can be from humid weather or excessive sweating, which makes sense because i was outside for a long time helping put a pool up in 90 degree weather and the next day is when i seen it. I still think its linked to hiv... She prescribed fungal cream and it was gone within a week and scheduled for a follow up appt on my tonsil in 3 weeks. After the rash went away i found i had a white tounge then found couple mouth ulcers in my mouth, which i get them on occasion, but never can remember getting one when the other is going away and also noticed a lump in the crease of my leg. I rubbed the other side and coudnt feel anything, it was only on that one side. I didnt go to the doctor for these 3 things, i was to scared thinking there all connected to hiv. by this time it was time for my follow up appt and everything was gone but i had a fever blister on lip and i told her about those other symptoms and showed her my lip, she didnt seem to concered and said the blister on my lip was from the hsv. Im so scared that for some reason all these things are due to hiv.

DO I NEED ANOTHER TEST?

I did unprotected sex with a young girl (which, as she said she is not a CSW) on 18 April 2016. Let me call this incident as ‘A-Incident.' I licked her vagina, did vaginal encounter without condom (which, as she said she is very rare do a sex without condom before) and ejaculates in outside of her vagina. We did sex twice. After that, on 21 May 2016, ‘B-Incident’, I did sex with a CSW. I received blowjob service from her without a condom but when do vaginal encounter I wore a condom. On 7 June 2016, there were four ulcers on my left arm, I’ve got a cough and burp. And also a bit sore throat. I am fasting. There is no diarrhea, no swollen lymph nodes, no fever and no sprue. I started to think about HIV. Therefore I decided to check for HIV using CMIA method on 9 June 2016 (52 days from ‘A-incident’ and 19 days from ‘B-incident’) and got the result non-reactive 0,12. But I am still worried, then I took another test(also using CMIA method) on 25 June 2016 (68 days from ‘A-incident’ and 35 days from ‘B-incident’), and the result non-reactive 0,06. Last CMIA test was yesterday (12 July 2016, which 12 weeks+1 day/85 days after ‘A-incident’ and 52 days after ‘B-incident’). I did VDRL test as well, which the result was negative. My questions are: do I need another test? Does the last test is conclusive? Thank you before and sorry for my bad English.
