Doubting HIV test results

I had low risk exposure to possible HIV transmission - oral sex cunnilingus (I was the performer). I tested 3 times at 4 weeks, 12 weeks and 48 weeks periods. Test results were negative. But currently I started loosing weight. Year after possible exposure. Do I need farther re-testing?. Can I trust clinic tests? If I was positive would I started loosing weight at one year period (Do not have any other symptoms)?
Thanks in advance

Possible Hiv transmission<HELP>

I have visited thailand recently where i had only protected vaginal sex with a CSW. I have had a few drinks but i remember the condom did not break.And at the base of my penis there was red skin happens to me where new skin grown and the time the base of the penis was pink. The condom did not cover the base at the end soo i am really worried i took an hiv elisa test where it was negetive at 25 days. i am going though extreme anxiety since the sex worker was in her 50's and i heard they usually have sex with out condom soo her chances are high. what are my chances of getting hiv.


Hi, Thank you for this plateform. I had sex with a lady i met on a trip however without a condom. The next day i realized i have been stupid. same week after the exposure i experienced about 2 weeks dryness in my mouth and loss of energy with headaches. six weeks down the line i experienced rashes which are smallish and looks like pimples on my face and chest and arms. I am in the seventh week (50 days) and still having the rash on my face, neck and chest (scattered).

I tested on the sixth week (rapid test) and it was negative. What is the chance of positive HIV on the 12th week? are my symptoms an indication of HIV infection?

Please assist.

blood donation

good day sir,
I am 34 male from India. I had a protected sex with sex(ORAL AND VAGINAL with condom) worker in equidor south America on 8th july 2016. After that on same day put my finger in her vagina for 30 minutes.and accedntly I touched my finger to my tip of my penis.I am having small burning pain on my penis till now.
I cane to india on 15th july 2016. One of my friend hospitalised on 27th july 2016 and he needs blood urgently.As that blood group not available and no blood banks available in our town.So I donated my blood to him and saved .The following tests carried out on that day
1)Blood group and rh typing
3)HIV 1 and 2(TRIDOT)
4)anti HCV
5)V D R L
All above tests found normal.
On 20th day after exposure , the above tests carried out .So please tell me is there any chance of HIV infection for me and my friend later.Because i am worried for my friend. Nothing should happen to my friend who received my blood.
Doctors told me that because of me he saved as his platlets count came down to 3000.

Negative rapid antibodies test and negative PCR, Should I be relieved ?

I felt the symptoms of HIV after having a 'protected' sex with a sex worker
My main noticeable symptom was a white tongue with red dots on it

I was really anxious and frightened, so I went to STD clinic

I had a rapid antibodies test (got the results after 20 minutes) and the result was negative
This test was 17 days after exposure, and the doctor told me that I got Chlamydia and told me to take azithromycin as one dose

I did so but the symptoms didn't go away as I still felt a muscle pain and flu-like symptoms except for fever

So I decided to take a PCR test at the 24 days mark after the exposure
and today the test result came as negative (cp/ml <50)

So my question, Should be relieved ?
I slept with my wife also (please don't judge me) and I'm really scared that I infected her

Are these tests reliable or not ?

Thanks a lot.
