I have had unprotected sex with someone I now believe to be HIV-positive and the day after I had unprotected sex with an ex-girlfriend. I tested myself the day after I had sex with my ex-girlfriend and the test has shown up negative. I do know it can take a long time for HIV to show up on a test. But I need to know: Is there a possibility I infected my ex-girlfriend with HIV even though I tested negative the day after?
I had high risk exposure. I had sex with a women who hiv status is unknown on July 4 2019 I used a condom but it broke as soon as I realized I stopped. On august 10 2019 I(5 weeks) I got 4th gen test result was negative . Today October 1st(89 days from possible exposure) I went and got a alere determine Hiv-1/2 ag/ab combo finger prick. Also negative. My question is should I re test or can I be sure that I'm completely clean?
I had an exposure 115 days (16.5 weeks) ago ( protected sex at a massage parlor, un covered blow job and pussy licking). NO PEP
I had a HIV 4th gen and HIV RNA test ( both at Loabcorp and Quest) on week 6, 12 and 15. All were Non reactive(for 4th gen) and NON detectable(for RNA). Can I 100% consider conclusive HIV negative with my week 15 test( 105 days after exposure). I read some threads about 2nd hiv window period and late seroconverstion in some people. Would those people also be conclusive by week-15. Also on some websites it still says they recommend another test on 6month mark, is completely outdated info.
is there any possibility or scenario for antibodies and antigens to stay at a very low un detectable level for the 4th gen and RNA tests on week-15
I wanted to make sure that am 100% safe with my 3 neagtive results and can safely move on with my normal life and sexual activities.
two weeks after having sex with someone whom I am not aware of her HIV status, I went to see a doctor and the test came negative, I am a very stressed, anxious (depressed) person, due to that, I couldnt stop thinking that maybe I had caught it, 94 days after the negative test, I took another, not only hiv but also other STD, and they all came negative.
However I still cant stop think that by somehow I still have it, I am really afraid of going back to any hospital. can I really stop being worried or there is something I have to do (no more tests please)
Thank you for answer my question:
I had Protected sex with someone of unknown status, I believed i was very careful due to my fair of HIV. Two weeks after i noticed my lymph node on my neck swollen, mildly swollen confirmed with Ultrasound, CT, Biopsy.
I went to the clinic at received Fingerstick:
Day 17 Alere Determine™ HIV-1/2 Ag/Ab Combo - non-reactive
Day 44 Alere Determine™ HIV-1/2 Ag/Ab Combo - non-reactive
Day 60 Alere Determine™ HIV-1/2 Ag/Ab Combo - non-reactive
I understand window period, but what is the likelyhood that im positive at receiving a 8 week 4 days Negative?
Thank you for you timely response.
Known HIV positive person during the intercourse condom broken, after 10 days, HIV RNA PCR test not detected and 12 WEEKS after hiv 4th generation test with CMIA method non reactive index value is 0.07 after 7 months HIV test with ELISA method non reactive i.e index value is 0.45. all test are performed at laboratory .can I safe are further any tests required? If required after how many days after and which Test is required? and my tests index value is rising from 0.07 to 0.45 the index value rising any problem?
I had the 4th generation test exactly 9 days post exposure. I had the test after symptoms started. Fatigue, other flu symptoms, 99.6 fever. I’ve read that the antigens part of the test is effective at 10-14 days post exposure. My test was negative, but I don’t know if it means anything. Will the 4th generation test detect antigens at 9 days if there are symptoms? I went to my regular doctor and had blood drawn for the RNA/viral load test yesterday, but it will probably be next Friday when I get the results. I’m still having the symptoms. This is the 7th day. My exposure was unprotected oral and protected anal (both receiving). Thank you for answering my questions.
I am recently exposed to a hiv 1 patient during tooth extraction via blood mixed with about 1 ml of lignocaine in a syringe, I felt a resistance during pushing the piston of the syringe. Suddenly the blood mixed lignocaine leaked and splashed to my eyes. I washed my eyes immediately with water and asked the patient about any disease history and he told that he is hiv positive and on ART SINCE last 5 years. I told our chief MO about the incident and he suggested me to Start PEP.. I STARTED PEP within 2 hours TL and LR( tenofovir with lamivudin and lopinavir with ritonavir) and also checked my recent hiv status which came out negative... The ICTC CENTER also informed me that the source patient is on ART his recent cd4 count was nearly 560 and pt is well controlled.. My last information is I washed the syringe to remove the major blood from the transparent portion with water before drawing 2nd time lignocaine.and the retained blood from needle and hub was then mixed with 1 ml of lignocane... how much risk in this situation ? please enlighten me... i am from India
I found a lot of (sometimes confusing) info concerning window periods. I know most specialists consider the 12 week mark as conclusive, however in some cases 6 months is mentioned. When should a person consider a test after 6 months?
i had unprotected vaginal sex 19 weeks ago. I did 4 HIV tests at 5,8,12 and 16 weeks after exposure. and also other STD's. All the tests were negative. AT week 15 i experience some swollen lymph nodes in my nek. the test at week 16 was negative so the docter said that it is nothing to worry about. But iets been 3 weeks later and they are still there.. i am a bit worried now.
Also i have read that acyclovir kan slow down the reproduction of the HIV virus.
i take this medication voor HSV-1. And i have taken this medication the first week after exposure because i had an outbreak. I took it one week, 2 pills a day. My test at 5 weeks was negative. Than one day before the 12 week test after exposure i get another outbreak and took also this medication.
my questions are: Can i definitely rule out HIV? and Does acyclovir effect a HIV test or the HIV virus because it is used in the HAART therapie?
