Hi, I'm HIV positive and a few weeks ago, my girlfriend gave me a blowjob without a condom. I'm pretty worried now because a few weeks after that she began to have a headache and now her stomach hurts, she's throwing up and she also has diarrhea. So far, from what I hear its pretty intense. I don't know all the symptoms of getting HIV, from what I googled it seems kind of scary. She's all the way in Kelowna so I can't check up on her, but I don't know what to do. Could she have HIV?
I have read some recent post and really appreciate volunteer people who take their time and help others. I'm one of them and I'm actually MUCH MUCH MORE TERRIFIED terrified right now as I'm feeling MUCH BETTER (almost as same old me) from last few days which turned out to be just a miracle.
About one and half month ago, I have had receptive unprotected anal sex. I had some bleeding hemorrhoids. Everything was fine for two to three weeks and things went downhill for me. I've FELT (not inflating any bit of it) possibly symptoms that happens with ARS.. had a mid grade burning fever, severe fatigue, night sweats, 15 sudden red blotches, sores in mouth, rash on face and chest area, total brain fog, swollen lymph not under armpit, anemia... I can go on an on ). It was terrible two to four weeks and now suddenly I feel great with clear mind.
-> Highest Risk of Anal UNPROTECTED receptive sex
-> 2-4 weeks of severe ARS symptoms
-> Worst Symptoms suddenly went away and for now I'm just feeling awesome again, which worries me with clear mind/body as few weeks ago it worried me with unclear mind/body :-(
I had following test done
1) 1 week 4th gen ab/ag duo -ve
2) 4 1/2 week 4th gen ab/ag duo -ve
3) 5 1/2 week 4th gen ab/ag duo -ve
4) 5 1/2 week RNA TMA non-reactive...
I understand that by 4 week 95% will test positive in 4th gen. Worried that I might be in 5% who developes ab/ag after that time so I got RNA TMA done ...Does that give me some consolation ?
my story starts in December 2014 when i received an oral sex by a sex worker and it was protective. After one year one of my friend told me that i could be infected i was very stress. i have flu twice in 2016. the second one was a bad fever and my symptoms of HIV was detected after the fever like throat paining(still having) white spot on tongue(still having sometime) small cuts on tongue body ash (still having) night sweat (still having) felling dizzy shaking hand sweat in hand and feet (still having) sometime fatigue. In February 2016 i made two HIV 1 and 2 test (i don't know which test is it).both of them result non reactive.but am still stress with it as am afraid of false negative.
can you please answer the question above.
1- does all HIV test result are accurate after 14 months or should i re test again? ?
2-does symptoms occurs after one year because i do not remember if i have fever in the 3 months after the exposure?

I had an anonymous and a little itchy minor skin rash that came a few days after I had different protected sexual encounters with someone whose HIV status is unknown to me but got romours later from people she is well known to that she is HIV+. This rush went away a after 3-4 days when i applied a cream given to me by my doctor. We also engaged in unprotected oral sex where she had leaked my pen**s for some minutes (BJ) and we deeply kissed. I asked her later to go for HIV test and she was hesitant, something which made me some how believe the romours. I mmediately did determine test en tested -ve, i did it again after 40 days of my last encounter with her en tested -ve, I am yet to do another one at 60 days and 90 days but i am so scared and worried that she could have infected me. wat could have been the cause of the minor rush and for it to have come around this period after sexual encounters ??? is there any other test i can do apart from determine and PCR before 90 days??, please advise me, but i will never be this stupid again if i survive this tragedy,, YK from Uganda
Hello! I was tested at 6 weeks by my doctor (blood test) and I did an at home (Oraquick) test one year and two months later. Both were negative. I have had some quirky health issues in the meantime, and I just can't help but think of HIV possibility. What brought me to be tested was a short-lived relationship with a deceptive person who was had many sex partners. We had sex six times, most was protected. However, the condom slipped off once and once nothing was used.
Thank you for your guidance.
Hey, I was hoping you will be able to help me. Last year, I began to go through an HIV panic. I have always practiced safe sex (besides oral sex) but somehow convinced myself I had HIV. I took my first test in January, a few weeks after my last sexual encounter (anal with a condom and gave unprotected oral), but was told to go back 3 months from then, which I did, and still tested negative. The test used were rapid test. In May, I had another sexual encounter, this it was only oral sex and we used a condom. At one point, he rubbed his penis against my anus (didn't go in) and I was afraid that I may have been infected because of that. In July, I tested again with a rapid test and it was negative. Also in the first week of July, I gave protected oral sex to a guy. This was my last sexual incident. Since then, I took 1 rapid test in September (2 months from the encounter), 1 more rapid test at the end of October (a little over 3 months from the encounter), as well as a Ab/Ag HIV blood test, which all tested negative.
Every time I tested, the counselor advised me that I was at low risk (no risk for the protected oral sex) and have been assured, if the test were done after 3 months of the encounter, they are conclusive. However, I keep thinking of "what ifs". Like, what if the condom ripped during oral sex and I didn't know. Or, if I am taking longer than 3 months to test positive for HIV. What if the test was defective and it is a false negative.
Every time I start to feel sick, the fear that the test might have been wrong takes over me. Whether I have a cough, sore throat, or a fever.
Is this typical thinking for someone in this position? Is there anything that I can do that will help me feel like my test or conclusive? I feel like if I take another test, and it's negative, it will just give me temporary relief.
Hi, I had a condom break accident while having sex with another guy. The next day I had diarrhea for about 3 consecutive days, then after about 3 weeks white tongue and sore throat. These symptoms lasted for a week, then lymph nodes started hurting in the throat area, no fever whatsoever. It all calmed down after about a month. I tested with oraquick post 3 months and it came negative.
I really felt good but then noticed that my tongue always felt sore and gums started hurting daily. I did all the necessary tests and all is negative. Now after a year and half, and about 5 more oraquick tests negative, i still have these problems in my mouth with recurring cold sores.
What may be the cause?
I had protected vaginal sex and unprotected oral sex(licked vagina) with a female sex worker in 2012 July
I fell really sick after that for two weeks
Headache, weakness, nausea ect
At that time I tested for hiv with Hiv 1/2 antibodies with p24 test and it came back with a result of 0.66
Since then I have been falling sick regularly with symptoms such as stiff neck, nausea and accute weakness, sore eyes ect
I have tested multiple times in last two years for hiv with antibodies plus p24 test
All of them came back negative with values such as 0.08,0.05,0.12 ect
Please tell me is there a risk for hiv infection?
Will antibodies be present for life?
Why was the reading so high first time?
Should I keep on testing?
Is this antibodies test sensitive enough?
Are my tests conclusive?
should I test with rna test?
