Conclusiveness of HIV Test ?

Hello!I did hiv test after 60 days of exposure to low risk , on the result gave to me is Non reactive for kit 1 and kit 2 And kit used was determine, I just want to know accuracy of this kit,and if the test is conclusive .And also what generation is this test kit.

symptoms for 2 months, do I have HIV?

I had protected sex 2 month ago and I know its protected and hiv can't be passed this way but during the intercourse I heard the condom pop but after ejaculation when I took out I couldn't see it break but since then after 10 days I had fatigue and diarrhea which lasted 1 month and swollen lymph nodes on my neck which lasted about 5 weeks and my main problem is some mouth lesions or ulcers inside my mouth in the area between the wisdom tooth and the tongue and I get sore throat till now that come and go and also night sweats now I know I used a condom but these symptoms have no other explanation I made cbc which was normal t3,t4 were normal also negative for epv and mono and negative at 27 days for syphlis and gnorrhea.

I went for an hiv antibody test at 27 days after the exposure which came back negative but I don't know what generation it is but its name is hiv 1,2 antibody test
and also tested negative at 47 days using the same test they took blood from the vein not finger prick
so what are my chances that I am hiv positive and are these mouth problems an ars symptoms that stay for this long?

Recreational drug use affecting HIV testing?

Hi,

I had my last unprotected exposures 2 years ago. I tested negatvie one year later, 3 days ago via Oraquick negative and today received 4th gen negative result. I am a chronic marijuana smoker (3,4 times a week) and I am wondering if my weed smoking habits can cause false negative results? I have smoked marijuana the day before my last HIV test (10 hours before test). I was told by my doctor that he thinks it does not impact HIV test results.

Best,

Accuracy of Point of Care HIV Test

How accurate is a rapid antibody test at 24 days post exposure? Also, what are the chances of a negative rapid antibody result at 24 days changing at 90 days or 12 weeks assuming no further exposure to HIV.

i can not consider my status

hi
briefly :(after exposure)
- since day 21: had very painful and slightly swollen armpits, chest and groins lymph nodes
- since day 46: had all HIV symptoms like chronic fever, sore throat, joint and muscle pain, bruises, fatigue, white coated tongue
- a negative PCR by day 31
- negative 4th gen ELISA at days 24, 40, 53, 60, 69 and ELFA by day 73

virologist is confused seems there is no other condition with all HIV symptoms together
what should I do now?

Sexual Activity with Tran Woman and Fear of HIV

Hello,

I have done sexual activity with trans woman sex worker for the first time, Both used condom, I received anal from the trans woman but after reading on internet i got anxiety that the condom was broken or had tears and that is just like condom was not used! The meeting was not too long, was like 1 hour.

I have done PCR RNA and Ab tests at day 8, with other testes like Hep B,C and Syphilis. Thankfully all were negative. After that i read in the Internet that PCR RNA test is not accurate and I read that there is 4th gen test Ab/Ag that can be done after 28 days.

I have done the DUO test at the start of day 28. The result was negative.

I still have anxiety and it is irritating my overall health.

I would appreciate your kind response. Should I stay worried?

Kind regards,

Fear of HIV - Have symptoms but tested negative using Oraquick

On 08/22/18 I gave unprotected oral sex to a man. He did not appear to ejaculate. We also tongue kissed. He had a recently chipped front tooth that appeared red where the tooth had been chipped. I do not believe I had any open cuts in my mouth, but my gums do bleed a little from brushing daily, so I don't know how high the risk is that I could contract HIV that way. 9 days after being with him on 08/31/18 I started experiencing severe stomach pains that felt like bloating or excess gas (GasX did not help), and vomiting, along with constipation (hard & very little stool daily). I have never experienced this type of stomach pain before, and had not vomited in years before that day. I purchased an Oraquick test kit today (09/09/18) which is now 18 days after being exposed and the result was negative. My stomach discomfort has mostly subsided, but I now have a strange nagging muscle/joint ache in my left hip area whenever I move that leg, along with constipation still. I do not know the status of the man I was with. Any info would be helpful. I am planning on having a Rapid HIV test done as soon as I hit the 4 week mark.

HIV test results conclusive after 21 weeks?

I tested HIV negative after 21 weeks of unprotected sex. Were those results conclusive?

Accuracy of Point of Care HIV Test

Hey guys,

I would like to start with the thing that I am on PreP and taking it every day. 3 weeks ago or maybe a bit less I had unprotected sex and starting from Saturday (4th day today) I've been having a severe headache that never had before and some fever not higher though than 37.8C.
I am on painkillers right now and I would say it works quite alright. I tested my blood for HIV by HIV DUO Quick HIV1/HIV2 BIOMERIEUX yesterday and got results to be negative today. I asked the consultant about my situation taking into consideration the fever and severe headache whether it's confirmed that these symptoms were not caused by the conversion just by smth else since I believe that if someone has a conversion going on in their bodies with above-mentioned symptoms it means that a viral load is high and it would be easily detected by the machine. The consultant asked me to contact my doctor since he was not sure about that. I am out of the country now and I've got no possibility to do so. Could you please help me with that?
P.S. I stopped taking PreP on Saturday, the day I felt bad.
