I had sex with someone on Dec 20 and the condom broke in between. I only realized after finishing. I started PEP in less than 48 hours and took it for 30 days. I tested at 42 days after exposure (11 days after PEP completion) the test was negative. The test I used was HIV CMIA (p24 and Antibody). I took another test (HIV CMIA serum) at 60 days after exposure (29 days after PEP completion) which was also negative
My question is this:
1. Are these test results encouraging?
2. I am planning to take another test at 42 days after PEP completion (74 days after exposure). Have you ever seen post pep test at 28 days turn positive in the future?
I have read on the Internet that HIV 4th gen test are conclusive at 6 weeks by expert. So if my test at 74 days (10 weeks and 4 days after exposure or 42 days after PEP completion) is negative. Can I consider this conclusive?

Hey guys and thanks for the help !! I got myself in a really bad situation and cheated on my girlfriend with a commercial sex worker while on a weekend away with some friends. She insisted on using a condom and so did I (she actually had a full bowl of them). I did not check the condom at the end. The was the first time I sleep with a sex worker and this was my second sexual partner ever. I felt horrible an admitted everything to my GF. We have talked everything through and I have never felt more confident about being and staying monogamous and I want to make sure I can continue this relationship in a fully healthy way. I just want to know If my test are fully reliable and I can can have no worry of putting my girlfriend at risk. These are the tests I took all of which were performed by a doctor or nurse:
4weeks- full std panel
6 weeks (44 days)- 4th generation HIV lab test, syphillis, Hep
6 weeks (44 days)- Insti rapid test
8 weeks (58 days)-4th generation HIV lab test, syphillis, Hep
9 weeks (67 days)- 4th gen HIV rapid test
10 weeks (69 days)- 4th gen HIV rapid test
10 weeks (72 days)-4th generation HIV lab test, syphillis, Hep
11 weeks (75 days)- 3rd gen HIV lab test
11 weeks (76 days)- Insti HIV rapid test
12 weeks (83 days)- 3rd gen HIV rapid test
12 weeks (86 days)- insti rapid test
13 weeks (94 days)- 3rd gen HIV rapid test
13 weeks (94 days)- 4th gen HIV rapid test
14 weeks (96 days)- 4th generation HIV lab test, syphillis, Hep
I know this amount of testing is sort of excessive (actually really excessive)...but I just really want to keep my partner as safe as possible. Thank you guys in advance

Hello Sir, i had a girlfriend, who was HIV positive, and after our break up she told me that she is HIV positive. We had sex alot of times but most of time i used Condoms. But still i tested myself on sep 2016, it was an Antibody and antigen p24 test. The report was nonreactive. Again after 1 year i tested myself cause i was abit confused due to having a wart near my genital ... test was same Antibody and antigen p24 test. Again the report was nonreactive. can i rely on these reports or again i should go for a HIV test?
hi i did an hiv screening test in which the p24 antibody index was more than one . it was 2.18.
after that all hell broke lose , and i did viral load test from dr dang and western blot from dr pathlabs. both the results were negative.
time of test : 3 months after unprotected sex
thanks and regards
Please help me to clear my query. I had unprotected sex who HIV status is unknown. But, I suspect, she is HIV positive. My last exposure 8th December, 2015. I first tested WB testing on 12th April, 2016; the result was INDETERMINATE NEGATIVE (Bands present, but pattern does not meet criteria for POSITIVE). This put me in more worry. I then tested ELISA testing on 27th April, 2016; result was NEGATIVE.
What should I consider now? I am suffering from excessive flatulence and gassing. I get my nose block during bed time, at night. I have other unusual problems that I had never experienced and suffered in my life, earlier. Please help.
Hello, thanks for helping me with my doubtful situation.
I´m an homosexual 25 y/o male.
Past march 25th, 2016 I tested positive with a 4th generation ELISA test. I repeated the test in a State hospital wich came back again Positive (value=21). Next, they performed the confirmatory Western Blot wich came back negative with no bands. At the same time of tests i had an acute streptococcal pharingytis in course wich resolved hardly with antibiotic treatment.
I've been sexually active since 2015 but i've prcaticed safe sex. I've had receptive penetrative acts (2 or 3) all protected and unprotected oral sex with no in-mouth ejaculation or similar. I dont see any potential risk, am I wrong? I also had not any seroconversion-like illness and a recent CD-4 test gave a 534 number.
My doctor keeps on telling me that i have to retest because he thinks my WB is a false negative. But HIV specialist says It's not necessary. My question: Do I really have to re-test since my low risk? Is a false negative WB possible?
