I had a 5 sexual activity. After 1 year I did HIV PCR test and ELISA antibodies result is negative. Is test reliable? And if ı have a superinfection was it released in test results? Some web sites says cant be detected antibodies. On web a patient with hiv 1 superinfection case. Sorry my bad english
I've had protected sex on 1st May 2016.
1.On the 21th day from exposure, i took the following tests-Hiv antibody/antigen,vdrl,Hepatitis B and C test.All negative.
2.On the 33rd day from exposure ,I've taken HIV 1proviral dna test and 4th generation HIV antibody and P24 antigen test.All negative.Could you please say if the results are conclusive.
I had a risk behavior so I want to know as much as possible i can.
6-7 Days after the relation, i went to MD and he told me that i have to wait to take hiv test, but in case i couldnt i should take P24 antigen test + VIH1+2 test.
I dont know wich generation the test was, bur the results are:
VIH 1 + 2 NEGATIVE
Technic: Antingen-Antibody reaction
Ag. P 24 NEGATIVE
With this information: is it possible to know wich generation of test the lab performed?
Ag.P 24 is reliable?
I understand that i have to wait to have another test. but with those a made mean something? or do not at all.
I had protected anal sex (bottom) and unprotected oral sex, I tested 27 days after and the results came back negative. Shld I still be worried or is it almost 100% safe that I am not HIV+?
Hi. 24 days ago I received oral and anilingus. I know the risk is negligible for these, but the thing is I had a cut around my anus where he was giving. I don't know why I'm stressing this so much. Is 24 days too soon to get accurate results from a 4th generation test? Also, are you guys related to CDC in terms of information about everything with risks and such?
first of all I've to say this helpline is very useful and well done too.
Let's move straighforward to the point. I'm in a homosexual relationship since 3 years but in May we decided both to have one experience each with other guys, always protected insertive sex and both did unprotected oral sex without ejaculation in the mouth and without any sort of contact with blood.
Doing some math
My Boyfriend took an Elisa 4th generation (antibodies + p24) test 35 days after the "possible" exposure with the unprotected oral sex he had, results negative (no reactive).
I took a PCR RNA test after 15 days from the last exposure combined with a Elisa 4th generation test resulting "undetectable , less then 37 copies/ml " and not reactive to the antibody + p24 test.
I know PCR RNA is not a diagnosing tool (but my doctor prescribed me because he found me very anxious) because of high cost, technical problem and high rate of false positive but that actually is a high sensitivity test (so very few false negative results). What I am wondering now is
1) does my boyfriend can take his results as conclusive ?
2) can i take mine as conclusive ?
Now we are 6 (my boyfriend) and 4 (me) weeks after the last possible exposure and we do not have any syntomphs.
Thanks for all !
I did a HIV 1 & 2 and P24 combo (CMIA) test after 84 days of possible HIV infection. I took another test a different lab (HIV 1/2 spot test screening) at 85 days. Both the result came out non-reactive.
Should I go for another test at 90 days or my tests are conclusive?
I recently had a TETANUS VACCINE after my tests. I found on the internet that TETANUS VACCINE can cause false positive in rare cases. I don't want to give myself tension by getting the false positive. Please walk me through all the tests that are not affected by TETANUS VACCINE in detection of HIV 1 &2. I want to relive myself from this HIV (1&2) tension.
In my home city, labs are offering only HIV 1 RNA QUANTITATIVE, REAL TIME PCR. Will it work? What about HIV 2?
my story starts in December 2014 when i received an oral sex by a sex worker and it was protective. After one year one of my friend told me that i could be infected i was very stress. i have flu twice in 2016. the second one was a bad fever and my symptoms of HIV was detected after the fever like throat paining(still having) white spot on tongue(still having sometime) small cuts on tongue body ash (still having) night sweat (still having) felling dizzy shaking hand sweat in hand and feet (still having) sometime fatigue. In February 2016 i made two HIV 1 and 2 test (i don't know which test is it).both of them result non reactive.but am still stress with it as am afraid of false negative.
can you please answer the question above.
1- does all HIV test result are accurate after 14 months or should i re test again? ?
2-does symptoms occurs after one year because i do not remember if i have fever in the 3 months after the exposure?
please help am stress
