i had anal intercourse and mutual oral sex with a guy, i am straight with wife.
i had an hiv duo combo at 7 week in the lab and the results were given back to me two weeks later
it came out negative for syphilis and hiv 1-2.

later after 4 weeks later i went to the hospital and got tested again but i did not reach my 90 days
i took the hiv test at 80 days!!!!!!

have you seen negative results at 7 weeks then turn out positive after 4 weeks more?
do you think my last hiv test can change and what are the chances i may be infected?
by the way i have to say that for anal sex i used a expired condom but it did not break
also i saw all my sperm remained in the condom, so it may help me.

tell me what you think about my horrible experience , i am dying of anxiety.

Hello and thank you for using AIDS Vancouver as your primary source of information on HIV/AIDS.

The 4th Generation HIV Test (duo/combo) is an extremely accurate test and is the latest test available for HIV testing. Many HIV specialists consider this test conclusive at 6 weeks. However, we at AIDS Vancouver follow the guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO) which considers all test conclusive at 84 days or 3 months. We would consider your negative result at 80 days conclusive, especially since the first 4th Generation HIV Test that was administered to you at 7 weeks showed negative results.

The issue of a condom being used after its expiration date is totally due to breakage. This is because the condom has a tendency to dry out and that is why there is an expiration date. According to your account of the activity, there was no breakage or leakage and therefore the condom was as protective as it could be. Please note, that a condom is never 100% guarantee, however you are to be commended for using a condom because it is the best way to prevent the transmission of HIV.

Although we do not feel you need re-testing for this activity, we encourage all sexually active people to be tested for all sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, on a regular basis as part of your routine healthcare program.
