After a possible exposure to hiv (unprotected vaginal) with a female of unknown status I have had a negative combo test on the 13th day and the 26th day post exposure. Since about 4 weeks post exposure my eyes have been twiching, I had low grade fever, sweats, and a touch of a sore throat at 7 Weeks post exposure, and now it seems as if my feet have a numbness to them. The fever, sweats and sore throat lasted 2 days, the eye twiching is still here and the numbness of the feet come and go. I am 52 days post exposure. So here are my questions:
1. Is peripheral neuropathy a sign of hiv infection (I have been reading it is)
2. My fever, sweats and throat started at 7 weeks...is it too late for ars symptoms to appear.
3. Are my combo tests reliable at the time I tested.

So! So! Worried
Hello, Thanks for answering my concern
I had unprotected vaginal sex with a girl who she claimed she is hiv negative, I asked her like four times, but she said she only slept with no more than 6 guys and she is healthy, and got mad at me. I know its sensitive topic but I think she is not hiv positive but deep down still scared silly. I went for testing at 5 week mark after exposure, went to HIM(health initiative for men) and I tested non-reactive negative for Rapid Insti Test as well as NAAT pooled RNA early test says negative no virus detected, and also urine test also negative, and at 7 week mark i went to HIM again, I did only NAAT RNA Early test at 7 week mark, and the nurse at HIM told me the tests i did at 5 week mark is conclusive? because i took antibody test and early test. does that mean im free or should i get tested at 12 week for antibody test? Is it going to change to positive at 12 week? I am worried. plz help..Thanks ;)

This was my question to you few days back!
My erection always dies out whenever i put on condom... It was a sex worker... first she gave me a hard and rash blowjob... i tried to do it with condom but i failed three times... out of frustration, i got on top of her without condom and rubbed my penis on to her vagina for at least 10 minutes... then suddenly i realized that my penis got into her... the moment i realized that i pulled it out... you can say it stayed inside her for at least 2-3 second... ...4-5 days after that encounter i spotted red spots on tip of my penis... i was getting worse every day... i went to a doctor... he diagnosed it as candidiasis(yeast infection)... and also suggested me to take HIV test after 4 weeks from the encounter and repeat it after 12 weeks... my candidiasis got OK after few days and i took 4 week hiv test it came back negative... but im still worried about my next test... suppose that sex worker has HIV what are the chances that my next test will come negative... and when should i take it again... now its my 5th week after the exposure... please help!!
Hello. Thank you for providing assistance to people around the world.
I am searching for consensous about the reliability of test results after extremely high risk. My partner tested postive for HIV more than 3 months ago. We had had unprotected anal sex for 4 years. Miraculously I have tested NEGATIVE 5 times on a Roche HIV Combi PT test 4th Generation Combo, all tests done at the same lab on the same Roche test kit. 1st test 5 days post last exposure, negative. 2nd test 25 days post last exposure, negative. 3rd test 41 days post last exposure, negative. 4th test 66 days post last exposure. Final 5th test at 89 days, 12 weeks 5 days to comply with requirements for conclusive results, NEGATIVE.
My question is, given my extremely high risk and pretest probability to be infected, can I really truely believe these test results.
Do I need to test at a different lab on a different test kit to make sure.
Or can I really truely believe I am HIV negative after this.

I have already posted many questions here and you guys was so helpful.
I just want to describe little bit about my situation here, I have unprotected vaginal sex with a girl of unknown HIV status. I do not go all the way inside her vagina and i only had my upper part of penis inside her. This act was only for 20 -30 seconds and i ejaculate outside because she was not feeling comfortable and crossing her legs again and again. When i saw my penis was all dry and there was no vaginal fluids on it beacuse i do not go all the way. This happened on 15 October.
Then after that i went to clinic in Vancouver ( HIM and Bute Street Clinic) and get tested for the following test.
After 9 days, 16 days and after 4 weeks i took all the following same test.
* HIV NAAT RNA
ALL the test were **NEGATIVE**.
Nurse told me at HIM ( Health Initiative for Men) that no further testing is required, So it is true ? He told me that if suppose that if 4th generation miss to detect the antigens and antibodies then the HIV NAAT RNA might have shown reactive. IN your case everything is negative, So he said to conclude no further testing is required. He said that HIV NAAT RNA is conclusive at 4 weeks.
So I do not need any more testing ?
Are these are results are good indicator?
