Negative HIV antibody test 10 months after exposure to a HIV positive contact

Dear doctors,
This is my story. I had sex with a HIV infected partner, and he revealed to me his HIV positive status only when I started to have acute symptoms 3 months later after exposure when I texted him with a question, what's the matter with me, it looks like HIV and if it is, it is certainly from you and he answered me, yes I have HIV. Up to that 3 months period I had not suspected and not thought at all about any HIV. But after his confession I started to remember the prehistory. All that previous time I had an exhausted look though I didnt feel very tired. I also had some rare small night sweat outbreaks. After about 2,5 months I started to have some very small pain in the throat which after 3 months grew to a terribly full-blown flu-like episode with my pharynx hot-red and so painful, though fever grew slowly and did not rise above 38. All that time I had painful neck under the chin, which continues to this day and has not gone anywhere. This flue-like episode lasted about a week. But temperature about 37.2-37.5 lasted 2 months. Now too from time to time it rises to 37-37.2. Now often when I get up in the morning my temperature is 36.2 but the moment I leave my house for work it is often 37.2. I felt terribly tired about 1-1.5 months, I could hardly prevent myself from falling flat on earth any moment. But after 1-1.5 it disappeared almost completely. I also lost about 7 kg within a month, after that I gained back my weight quickly and even over my usual weight. From that time on my bowel gradually behaved worse, although before I have never had any problem with it. My stool about 1 month after an acute episode started to be more and more liquid. Now about about 1-2 times a week I have a perfect diarroea and this keeps going on already for more than 8 months. During the acute period my two very small hardly visible warts on the head became bloody and now they are quite bigger in size. During the acute period I started to have a coated tongue, which does not improve and continues to this day. I had HIV tests after 3,5, 6, 8, 10 months after exposure, all are negative. I have had some tender small spots in the lymphatic region in the neck and about the armpits on the chest from that period up to this time. So you can see I still have symptoms which I have never had before: sore throat with coughing (continues to this day), coated tongue, rises in body temperature, liquid stools with diarrhoea, some tiredness and weakness bringing me definitely some level down (though generally I am satisfactory). My exposure details are such. Anal sex was protected (I am on the active side), but my skin on the penis easily breaks even after small rubbing with some blood showing due to chronic fungal dermatitis. We had a lot of kisses, and there are papillomas in my throat which delay swallowing. I should explain about my fungal condition. It is chronic but spread all over the body and it is dormant. But if I rub my skin any anywhere just very little it breaks and becomes an injure. My doctor was very surprised that my fungus on the body did not disappear after many treatments with antifungals and became chronic though inactive, he said he has never seen such a case in his life. As for me I can attribute my new continuing symptoms to nothing else but HIV. Also it seems my immunity (although good enough in itself for living) is somewhat special and abnormal and can explain somewhat strange reaction of my body to HIV. Also I should say I cannot pay for PCR test, I must tell my name if I want it free, but I am terribly afraid of being disclosed. I will greatly appreciate your responses to my question what can you tell me about my case and what should I do? Can I do RNA test in your laboratory? Regards.

Bleeding eyebrow

I got a hit from an unknown guy. My eyebrow was bleeding and his fist too. Could I have been infected with this situation?

Negative test after six months

Hello I'm from Brazil. Excuse me for weak English. I'm a man. Exactly 6 months ago I had a sexual exposure with a program girl and the condom broke in vaginal sex. In the first 3 months I had almost all the symptoms of the acute phase of HIV. And in the first three months I ran several RNA and fourth-generation Elisa tests and all of them tested negative. The girl I met had a 3-generation test after three-and-a-half months, and hers also tested negative.
Now, after six months I have re-run another 4 generation Elisa test and it came out negative. But there were some rashes on my skin and impetigo was noted. I was afraid of being AIDS. What is the chance that I will be infected with HIV? Are the tests reliable? Thank you!

UNPROTECTED SEX/PEP WITHIN 72 HOURS

Good afternoon,

I had unprotected sex 3 times on a Saturday and again 3 times on a Sunday with a lady i had just met. I started taking pep within 72 hours of the first exposure. but before PEP we did an antibody test with the lady which tested for HIV 1 and 2 but it was non reactive. the lady also told me that she last had sex four months ago and it was protected sex. she also told me she had done a test a week ago. she did not even resist to go for another HIV test with me which gave a reason to believe her. i have been taking PEP even though she was negative in case of the window period.

At home i have been using condoms with my partner and one day the condom broke. what is the risk of infecting her and me being infected. the condom broke and within seconds i came out. it broke when i was trying to enter her and i had taken pep for 16 days.

Are these symptems? Do I need to take the test?

I had sex with a woman (I don't know about her sex background/diseases she may have) 14 days ago. She brought a condom and covered my penis, but sex last only few minutes (she was up first and we quickly changed our positions). I was nervous as I haven;t has sex for a long time so didn't check the condom after but I don't think it was broken and she removed it for me and I washed myself quickly right after that. After 7 days I got flue (mild fever for about 2 days, stuffy and runny nose and throat, severe cough (due to sinus stuff came into my throat, my body getting warm and sweating and then it become normal, and lost my appetite). I went to doctor and he checked the nodes under my chin, my mouth, and my ears and said it's a flu and will get healed soon. It's been 6 days now and I feel but still stuff coming from my sinus and nose to my throat which causing coughs and my body still getting warm and normal, and still don't have that much appetite). Could you please advise if it's possible to get the HIV symptoms in 7 days after exposure and if I have to test for HIV?

is hiv 4th generation cmia test at 7 weeks conclusive

i had a protected vaginal sex with a sex worker but i licked her vagina without any protection or barrier and i tested for HIV with 4th generation cmia ag/ab test after 7 weeks and it came back negative. so is this test considered conclusive after 7 weeks of exposure because I'm to much worried

Was there a risk for me ? {I}F I put my hand into syringe drop box ?

This question might be quite weird to you!

But you know I'm the one who pick up things restlessly! So I'm {n}ot quite sure as to whether this scenario was happen to me in fact!

I do remember that around 7 years and 4 months ago in an airplane toilet I saw syringe drop box that was situated on the console of the toilet but I can't remember exactly whether I put my hand into that syringe drop box or not ????? Maybe it was just located there but I didn't do anything with it (I really hope I didn't!)

But what if I did ? Would there be any risk to me ?

Ps. I did some research on the internet that there's no one report for someone who was infected by HIV by pricking oneself with discarded syringe in US, Canada< UK or even Australia ????? Whether this will apply to my case or not ?

Can you get HIV though the eye

I work in a medical center and i was tasked to "spin and plate the bloods" as i was doing this i was using a glass capillary tube in which it snapped and a drop of blood got into my eye, i spoke with the doctor who she said it is a low chance of getting it but i was wondering what is the chance i could get it and if there is a similar case
