Re: please help

Hiya, im sorry to hear about your sisters situation.
Well your sisters negative test has some reassurance, but for the test to be conclusive, it will need to be 3 months from her last exposure. Any approved FDA test ( Insti, elisa, Duo, ora gold etc) will be fine and conclusive. As for the outcome regarding her first test, well its impossible to say unless you know when their last encounter was. Your doctor or the HIV clinic will only use FDA tests, so you dont need to worry on that matter.

I hope that helps

Re: please help

I am really sorry to hear that buddy.
But as Apollo says your sister's negative test is somewhat assuring and as every one would believe here that HIV is very hard virus to catch but yes Risk was there. Most likely, she dodged the bullet.

So just have faith in God and most probably she will be fine. We all will pray to God for the well being for your family.

Re: please help

just so he understands you don't just turn positive on a test after some time.
you either have hiv or you don't.
the only reason you are told to wait to test is so
the infection can grow big enough to find.
it doesn't suddenly appear from nowhere.
it is there from the moment you are infected

the test so far says no
most likely that is what the next test will be.
good luck

Re: please help

Smiteler,

he said his sister tested negative after 4 weeks(1 month) without exposure as per what she says. so we can think she has the 4 weeks negative which is good indication.

But the guideline is 3 months which most probably will be fine.
So he needs to hang on there and so his family with fingers crossed and having faith in God and in HIV experts like yourself and others here on this forum.

Re: please help

It is not at all unusual for a partner of an infected person to remain negative after several months or even years. Your sister's negative test ruled out over a year's worth of exposures, so that is very encouraging. The odds are on her side that she will test negative again.

Re: please help

Hiya. A week test is a very good sign, so in terms of worry you should feel good about the situation. The next test is unlikley to change, so i wouldnt worry to much now. A 6 week test from exposure with that test is very reasuring. Your next test i would expect to be negative as well.

Hi Rakesh,

Its very good news and we are all happy for you and your sister.

For your information, The average time to seroconversion is 22 days.
All but the very smallest number of those who are going to seroconvert will do so within 4-6 weeks after an exposure to the HIV virus.

Despite the situation of your sister's experience, with that series of negative test results, it is likely you are going to continue to test negative at 13 weeks.

It seems that she dodged the bullet and as joggen mentioned, It is not at all unusual for a partner of an infected person to remain negative after several months or even years.

Good luck with your sisters last and conclusive test. It will be more likely the same result. Negative.

Re: please help

RK,

thats good news that your sister is with you and your family in safe situation.

and Yes! Non Reactive means Negative and completely healthy.
Further advice, 6 months testing is only for those people who are already immuno compromised, long time IV drug user or on long term chemeotherapy else expect your sister's any tests from now on to be negative too.

Cheers!!

Nomy one more question is , in "hiv 1 & 2 anti bodies test" the report given as "non reactive" means negative or not detected. am i right? Modern tests will test for HIV 1 and 2. The results are either positive or negative. Its as simplemas that. So far all is looking good for her, fingers crossed the next set will remain negative to. sorry for asking like this , i dont know ....thats y.........

Hi, Thanks for ur great support and replies. my sister's 3 months test ( exactly 14 weeks from exposure) done three days back and the result came today as NEGATIVE. im feeling much relief now.my sister n parents r also happy & feeling much relief now.

Her test results: at 4 weeks: Westren blot : Negative
6 weeks: Pcr : Negative
14 weeks : P24 Antigen : Negative
14 weeks : Pcr : Negative .

My questions are is pcr & p24 antigen tests are fully conclusive after three months? is 3 months test is conclusive? any other tests needed now or after 6 months? can we believe that she is 100% negative even after living with a hiv person more than 1 year ?

thank you

Hiya its only GOOD news.

She is HIV negative, all 4 shows have proved that. The 14 week test is 100%.
A PCR and a DUO together leaves no doudt she dose NOT have HIV
Their are no more tests that are required. Dispite the scare, the test results are 100% conclusive and the tests you have taken are best on the market.

So its great news to your sister and family. All is well buddy

Hope that helps, and regards
