Hi aidsvancouver,

I am a normal man in my 30s.

April the 10th 2014 I had a condom break with a CSW in Argentina during vaginal sex, even when she used lube.

When I was back in germany I had the following tests done HIV Ag/Ab, Hepatitis B - HBsAg and anti-hbc, Hepatitis C - Anti-hcv and syphilis tests. This was done at our state hospital which are using an Abbot Architect machine.

I tested at 97 140 and 174 days after this exposure, and all was negative. Am I 100% conclusively negative for all these diseases?

Thanks in advance.

Regards
Dan

Hi there,

Thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline as a source of HIV related information.

Yes, you can consider your negative results 100% accurate at this point. We at AIDS Vancouver abide by the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, which state that all HIV test results are conclusive at 84 days (3 months) post-exposure. Since your tests at 97, 140, and 174 days were conducted well past this 84-day mark, you can consider your negative results to be 100% conclusive.

Let me also remind you that CSWs are at no greater risk of being HIV positive than any other person. HIV does not discriminate based on occupation, gender, age, or any other factor -- instead, your risk of contracting HIV comes from the activity you engage in.

I trust I have addressed your concerns. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.

In good health,

Tiina

AIDS Vancouver Volunteer
