Window Period

REGARDING DOUBT CLEARITY RELATED TO HIV

sir,
my last intercourse with a thailand commercial sex worker was on 11.01.2019
i got the following test

HIV1 & 2 ANTIBODIES SCREENING TEST SERUM FROM LAL PATH LABS NEGATIVE
HIV 1 & 2 ANTIBODIES SCREENING TEST SERUM FROM LAL PATH LABS NEGATIVE
HIV 1 & 2 ANTIBODIES AND P24 ANTIGEN TEST FROM LAL PATH LABS 0.14 NON REACTIVE

my question is that can a man take more than 3 MONTHS to produce hiv antibodies
do i need further testing or its sufficient

Help Please!!

I had a risky exposure on Jan. 17, 2019. I tested negative at 13 days (RNA), 18 days (RNA), 20 days (RNA), 27 days (4th gen), 34 days (4th gen), 48 days (4th gen) and 90 days (4th gen). What are the chances I could still be positive? I haven't had any risky encounters since the initial one. What would cause someone to not develop antibodies until after 90 days?

Blood Splattered into my Eye

I was doing a pap test when all of a sudden there is some bleeding, and it splashes into my left eye. I don't know the status of the patient, but what are my chances if this person is HIV - vs HIV +? Is it possible to contract HIV this way? I'm thinking that the mucous membrane of my eye is a entry point.

Thank you.

Negative results from 4th generation DUO test after 6 weeks & 10 weeks & 2 days.

I am a male, had a protected the vaginal sex with CSW.
But the condom broke , we stopped as soon as we realized.
Not sure how long the exposure was.

This is my only exposure.

I was under tremendous stress & anxiety since then.

I had done the 4th generation DUO test at the lab (in the US at LabCorp) after 6 weeks.

I did another test at the lab (in the US at LabCorp) after 10 weeks & 3 days.

Both the test results came as NonReactive.

Are my results conclusive ?

Should I test again after 12 weeks?
What are the changes of the this result changing from NonReactive between 10th week & 12 week.

thank you.

PLEASE ARE MY NEGATIVE RESULTS CONCLUSIVE EVEN WITH ORAL THRUSH

I had an exposure 6 times on two consective days. Unprotected virginal sex. I took PEP for 28 days which i started within 72hours. I took HIV duo test at 14 weeks 1 day post PEP (18 weeks 2 days post exposure) which came out non reactive (0.02). I also took Hepatitis C rapid antibody test at 122 days post exposure and it was negative. The problem is that i have been having oral thrush for almost 3 months now. Can i rely on my results or should i wait for six months in case of delayed seroconversion? Is my hepatitis C result also conclusive? Am really scared please help. By the way the baseline HIV antibody test for both me and the lady i had sex with was negative but to rule out possibility of window period i took PEP.

PLEASE AM I SAFE

I had an exposure and took PEP for 28 days which i started within 72 hours. I did the following tests which all came back non reactive:

1) At 105 days post exposure (76 days post pep) 3rd Generation HIV Elisa Antibody test which was non reactive.
2) At 119 days post exposure (90 days post pep) Determine HIV Antibody test which was still non reactive.
3) At 122 days post exposure-Hepatitis C rapid test which came back non reactive as well. Can i consider my results conclusive since the guidelines state that delayed seroconversion only occurred in people who acquired Hepatitis C together with the HIV virus. Please respond and this will be the last time am asking.

Stupid Mistake

I was manic for a while and got involved with some dom/sub play with another guy in my area. He collected some cum in a container about 3 days before I came over and kept it in the fridge. I wound up being convinced to swallow it. We then had protected sex.

My question is would the refrigerated cum be a large risk factor? I tested with the INSTI test 32 days post exposure and it was non reactive. My only concern is that on one side of my neck I can now feel my lymph node which is about the size of a pea, but not painful. Thanks for any help you can give.

Blood oaths, blood transfusions, syringes with infected blood

Hello friends,

I have a few theoritical questions about HIV blood transmission.

1. You probably know the common practice of high-school blood oaths, where a grop of people cut their palms or their wrist arteries with a razor and then perform contact or handshake with deep wounds. My question is - In this situation will PEP will needed (and testing respectively)

2. A person decides to donate blood and it happens to be in his/hers WINDOW PEROD. Is there a possibility the medical staff not to detect the virus and then to be transmitted to other people?

3. As a final of my inquiery I would like to ask you about the famous myth "synergy filled with hiv blood". For how long it is possible the virus in the blood to survive there.

Thanks in advance fo your help and answers

Thanks in advance for the answers

False positive or not

Thank you for your services.I have been working as a doctor in Germany for two months. During my pre-hospital screening test, my blood test was positive for HIV. Nine years ago, I had a similar incident in India where a screening test was positive. My doctor advised me to do a Western blot, P24 antigen and DNA PCR test, all of which were negative. I did not have any exposure.One year later, I got married and was tested every two years and was always negative. I gave birth to a healthy boy two years ago. The regular maternity checks for HIV were also negative. I am only sexually active with my husband. Is there a chance that this current test in Germany could be a false positive? How accurate are these tests in Germany for occupational medicine examination. What do I have to do now? Why would such an incident happen to me twice? I would really appreciate a feedback.

Quantity of HIV transmitted affect window period?

Dear Team- Thank you for taking the time to answer this.
I had protected vaginal sex, the condom broke right in the beginning and he pulled out immediately. I was tested at 6 weeks, 3 months and 4 months with 4th generation HIV test all coming back negative. My concern is I had two vaginal yeast infections about 7 weeks after and then again about 13 weeks after. I also noticed about 15 weeks after my right lymph node on my neck is swollen.
My questions:
1- Are my tests conclusive or do I need to retest at 6 months
2- Does the quantity of HIV transmitted affect the window period. Meaning if only a small amount of HIV was transmitted would it take longer for my body to respond to it thus lengthening the window period?
Thank you!
