Hiv infection question

Hi, I'm 30 lives in middle-east. I used to go to prostitutes from last two years; I use to practice safe vaginal intercourse and unprotected oral sex. My last episode was 42 days back, in that episode oral was also protected but kissing and for a minute she touches my penis head on her vagina at that time her vagina was wet don't remember my penis was also wet. Is there a chance of hiv transmission?
After that episode I was very anxious and right after 5 days and 14 hours I went to std clinic and explain my situation to a Dr. he replied that standard HIV test can't find hiv as early as after 5 days and after this he recommends me
"HIV RNA PCR" test and also test HIV 1 & 2 + p24 (Duo test),
these both become negative. For other STD after 36 days and 14 hours I went for hepatitis B hepatitis C and syphilis test which all came -ve and after 40 days and 14 hours I went again for DUO test (Hiv 1 & 2 + p24 gen) which is also come -ve. Is there still any chance that I am infected?

Re: Hiv infection question

The 40 day DUO test is 99% and with a negative PCR test its safe to say your HIV negative. Your risk was more or less zero and really didnt need to test. As you did, your results are fully conclusive and you do not need any more testing for HIV. Its that simple all is good, so dont worry.

nope!
you get infected sexually by insertive
unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse most if not all of the time.

so you were never at any kind of risk
to be infected in the first place...

your test confirms this fact,hiv was found in me in
less then 3 weeks from when i was infected.
at 40 days it simply would of been found in you.
move on
hiv should not even be a concern for you.

Re: Hiv infection question

Hi, one more thing I need to mention. after 5 weeks I got small cough and little uncomfortable feeling in my chest. And now it is almost 7 week of that last episode, and now I feel fever though it is very low (99 to 99.4) and cough getting little heaver. Is it any thing to worried about from HIV 1 or 2?

Re: Hiv infection question

Actually no. You got your test results. Go find it where u kept it, take it out and see it again. I do tht sometime to remind me of myself that I'm safe a month ago.

your symptoms are only a coinidence!

the test you took eliminates the possibility
and the possibilty never even existed in the first place!

if you cannot accept or believe these facts
then you might want to seek
professional help to assist you in doing so.
good luck

Re: Hiv infection question

Hi,

Please accept my apology that I'm repeating the same thing. Are you advise me to go for another test exactly after 90 days? Although my doctor didn't suggests anymore testing.

Thank you.

Re: Hiv infection question

No Buddy,

I dont think you need anymore testing and your symptoms can be just because of stress, anxiety or as samll as a cold or occassional flu and it has nothing to do with HIV.

You are negative.

Re: Hiv infection question

Hi,

I'm still suffering from low fever and cough. But leave it. I just need to ask couple of questions.

-As in my case I tested for hiv after 40 days, is it reliable? if it is then why people are suggesting test after 90 days?

-I accepted in my last episode there was no or very very less chance to get HIV, on the behalf of that episode you guys conclude that I never have to worried about or the test result after 40 days are final and reliable?

I'm sorry to bothering you guys again .

Re: Hiv infection question

90 days applies to 3rd generation testing. You had a 4th generation test which is considered to be conclusive after 28 days by many experts. But you didn't need the test because you were never at risk in the first place. You should consider the result as 100% confirmation that you were never at risk.

Re: Hiv infection question

instead of thinking about
things that should not even be a concern to you?????

Re: Hiv infection question

Hi,
Just want to know some information.
I read that the 4th generation test DUO (HIV 1 & 2 +p24 antigen) is not totally new generation of test it based on ELISA (which is 3rd generation) and p24 gen (p24 protein which is actually 4th gen). Because ELISA is 3rd gen and it require 90 days to detect antibody and initially after two week or so there is huge amount of p24 antigen in infected people and hence it is detected by p24 gen method in DUO test, after 28 days the p24 protein disappears and by that time antibody still not found in blood. And p24 antigen method is only for HIV 1 virus while there is no such technology for HIV 2 virus accept ELISA which is 3rd generation.

Please correct me if I am wrong, you guys are doing such a great work.

Thanks a lot.

Re: Hiv infection question

Yes your wrong buddy

The HIV DUO the lastest and most sensative test in the market It will detect antibodys by the 30 day mark but can detect the P24 even earlyer ( P24 stays in the body for 12 weeks, but its at it highest from 3 - 6 weeks). Combined they were fantastically well. Combine this with the PCR test then its fair to say your 100% HIV negative. To make clear as well, both tests will test for still detact HIV 1 and 2 ( for your own peace of mind)If you combine that with your NO RISK situation, then their is no other logical outcome - you HIV NEGATIVE
