HIV Risk - 4th generation

Dear Team,

Yesterday I had unprotected sex with lady I met in the club, next day I asked her to come with me to do HIV test 4th generation, The her result was negative.

I’m still worried, Do I need to do test after one month?

Thank you for your support and advice.

Hiv 4th generation combo test at 6 months

Had unprotected sex got tested 4 times.
On 29th unclear result
On 44th negative
On 91th negative
And on 189th negative
The thing is that i really doubt all the 3 negative tests because of the unclear test result. How come i tested unclear and then became negative? Is it false negative? Have you seen a case of someone taking more than 6 months to detect hiv antibodies? Do i need more testing?

please advise

i had an unprotected anal sex with a gay ( me insertive partner) whose status unkown . i had a p24 antigen antibody test negative at 39 days and 67 days after exposure .Is my result conclusive or i need to retest again at 84 days .Please advice

Deep tongue kissing and frothing (penis head touched my anus)

m4m interaction, i had deep kissing with lots of tongue exposure and he rimmed my ass for a while and place his cock on my anus (entry way) i was clenching my anal muscles so that no penetration could take place. i never bottomed and don't know how a cock feels when having anal intercourse. I am just worried that if this situation puts me at any risk ? will i know if he inserted his penis head in me ? Even though i was preventing him from doing so by not relaxing my anus. i am extremely worried. i travel a lot and the only test i can have is after 4 weeks and then i travel again. will this 4 weeks test which i will perform next month after this exposure due to time constraints, will it be a good indication of my status ? based on my exposures (it will be a 4th generation test). i know you guys says 6 weeks is conclusive but in my case ? Thank you for this great service.

HIV-2 Window Period

Hello.

I had one unprotected vaginal sexual exposure with a girl. Next day after exposure, we went to a clinic to test. I knew my results won't be accurate but I just wanted to know her HIV status. Clinicians used Alere Determine HIV1/2 Ag/Ab test and she was negative. I also tested with Alere after 50 days and with 4th generation lab test after 60 days. Both were negative.

What I'm worried is, she said she had relationships with African people nearly 2-3 years ago. I know that some African people has HIV-2 type of virus, different than HIV-1. I wonder if she was HIV-2 positive, does this means a prolonged window period? Basically, does HIV-2 has different window period than HIV-1? I searched some articles but I couldn't find exact reports. Alere Determine doesn't have any HIV-2 spesific antigen detection so there needs to be established HIV-2 infection to detect antibodies. But I do not know what is the maximum window period to establish HIV-2 antibodies. I'd be so glad If you can help me.

Thank you!

HIV OR NOT ?

Please help, I don’t know where to turn to next , getting hopeless. So this may be a little long. So almost 2 years ago I started dating a guy, I was in perfect health. After I started dating him, I started having burning when peeing that was the first symptom. Then muscle twitching , then severe Pelvic pain, follow by weak legs for a short time , eye pain, ear pain, loose stool for a short period of time, the since of being unwell. The muscle twitching seem to spread all over my body, my head, my hands, my arms everywhere you can think of. I had a sore throat at one point of time, heart palpations, tingling in feet and numbness in hands when I wake I have to shake it off . I also was having jerks , in my legs while awoke or when I’m on my way to sleep . I also had a few small rashes nothing too crazy

My boyfriend at the time told me his mom died from HIV but he was negative , which I thought he was as well cause we got tested together. Test was indeed negative. However , after I started to put all of this together, there was a common denominator after me getting sick and it was him. I also started to notice he was having muscle twitching just like I and or the same symptoms .

On top of this , I was tested for a year straight after possible exposure, all negative . After a year went to get a hiv test done again, antigen was weakly positive and the antibody was negative so I was asked to retest because of possible false positive.

Went back and had extensive blood work done, I repeated the same test, had a viral load test done and a pcr. All negative . It has been a year exactly since the ‘ false positive ‘ and I have been tested on 4 different occasions after that all negative , in fact all test are negative besides hsv 1

I have seen an infectious disease doctor for the hiv testing before, I have seen a allergy/immune doctor , a neurologist who didn’t do much testing. No one seems to find anything .

I’m concerned that I have a special strain, or something that’s not picking up.

I am in a new relationship, due to all the negative testing I have been having unprotected sex and I fear him ever having anything from me .

Would do you recommend?

HIV Test at 2 months & 1 Week Negative

Thanks for taking the time to look at this question.

I honestly have a fear of HIV, I'm honestly scared that I'll get it and its always on my mind. I'm gay and I recently broke up with my ex partner over 2 months ago. The last time we had sex was about 9 weeks ago, and yes we didn't wear protection. I found out that he had raw sex with someone else while we were together in the last two weeks that we were together. Fortunately we know that person he had sex with and they both say they are negative and my ex is now on prep.

But I am still paranoid as I have chronic fatigue and most of the symptoms are similar to HIV and its playing on my mind and affecting me every day.

I had a little over a month check and it was negative, I just had a 9 week test and this was also negative. What are the chances say one of them did have HIV that my 9 week negative result could still come up positive at the 12 week mark? I can't keep going on like this :(

Should i Re-test after negative results from an instant HIV test?

hi. i had a very short (less than 30 seconds) vaginal sex with a female sex worker. i did instant hiv test after 14 weeks and the result was negative. As i'm so stressed, i'm wondering if i need to repeat the test again or it's conclusive already?

Please I Beg for a kind reply (Anxiety at the top)

Dear Sir/Madam
this is my 3rd time positing to you but no reply at all. I am totally broken due to fear and anxiety of hiv please help me to sort out this.
I must admit that after an unprotected brief anal intercourse a second foolish mistake to do a test alere determine at home while i was not totally aware of the procedure. I did and a grey control line and a faint grey line appear after few minutes on the test strip i was shocked and assumed that my life has been ended up. after reading much articles and who website i came to know that this might be an invalid test as what i saw was a shadow and alere determine requires coloured line for reactive as many other experienced the same and WHO also stated in their practice module 9. since then i repeated test as follows

High top antibody rapid home test (non reactive at 7.5 week)
Alere determine done by me at 8.5 and 9 week non reactive

Since i know i should confirm my result i went to a health care provider in my area and tested with SD Bioline hiv 3.0 test non reactive at 10 week.

I tested again by myself at 13 week using alere determine hiv 1/2 nonreactive
at 15 week i went to a local community health care centre where they tested me with hiv antibody test rapid test non reactive
at 20 week i went to the same health care centre for the retest and they test me with alere hiv combo twice and reassure me that i am free from hiv.

Please help me to sort out my anxiety. i shall be thankfull

three protected vaginal and unprotected oral sex with csw in China

Hi there,

I am a Canadian working in Beijing. On june 24, 2018, I ordered an outcall services, and the girl gave me an oral sex for a short while followed by protected vaginal sex (she sat on me). I think the condom did not break (my "stuff" was not leaking out, so I assume it was intact) but the condom used was not any international brand that I am familiar with.

On Agust 24 2018, I found a massage parlor and tried the service. First, it was just unprotected oral sex. And somehow I thought this girl was safe, and decide to do unprotected oral sex + protected vaginal (she sat on me) on August 29.

During September, I visited the massage parlor for another two times. On September 7th, I did unprotected oral sex only. On September 30, I did unprotected oral sex and protected vaginal sex (I inserted into her).

At first, I was not so worry about these encounters as I had used condom for all of the vaginal sexes, and I did not experience any symptom (no diarrhea lasting for more than a day, no rash, no fever, no sore throat etc;). Additionally, for all the vaginal sexes I couldn't get very hard and ejaculate after 20-30 seconds or even shorter. The outcall girl's boss told me that the girl is clean and the massage girl told me that she got check regularly.

Recently I read a news about the number of HIV paitent in China that has increased rapidly during the third quarter, which made me start to worry and led me to here. Now I am worrying about the condoms I used were not effective as they are some unknown chineses brand brand and somehow these encounters could accumulate (it sounds super stupid).

My current concerns are 1)the condom could be fake and it did not work though it covered my penis 2) the condom could have little hole that vaginal fluid can come through. Can you tell me what are the chance of getting hiv if my concerns were real.

I've already booked a body check this weekend, but start having imagination of getting a positive report back. I understand that you get questions like this a lot, and I apologise. I just want have some professional opinions regarding the chance of having negative report so that I can wait for my report more peacefully.

Thanks
A worry paranoid
