Hello, my name is L. I need your help.

I had a contact with a woman in first of July. I received oral sex and touched her vagina with my finger.

I never had unprotected sex before, then I stayed worried.

I did 4º generation test with p24 after 17, 24, 31, 55, 93, 120 e 176 days, all with negative result.

After all this, I have chance of Late Seroconversion? In this period, around 20ª days after the act, I taken doxycycline per 28 days, to resolve other problem. This medicine could interfere in the results?

Hello and thanks for reaching out to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your question.

It seems like you are concerned that taking deoxycycline which is an antibiotic might have interfered with the HIV test results. We are glad to help.

First of all receiving oral sex is considered a Negligible risk activity. This means that although the activity involves the exchange of body fluids, there has never been a confirmed case of transmission this way. We are encouraged that you have been tested as testing is the only way one can determine their HIV status.

The second thing is that taking an antibiotic medication has no effect on HIV test results. Any results that are obtained after 84 days are considered conclusive. The results you have are as accurate as they can be and a true reflection of your HIV status which is negative as you say.

You can obtain further information from the AIDS Vancouver Online Helpline postings and [CATIE.](http://www.catie.ca/en/fact-sheets/testing/hiv-testing-technologies) If you have further questions feel free to contact us again.


Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.
