Can you trust g.p?

I was just wondering if doctor can really be trusted ? After having 2 really high risk exposures and every HIV symptom. The swollen glands a week ago and other symptoms before that. I also had an anal tear during sex. Well I remember looking at my sheet to go get my bloods done and all it said was "HIV" does this mean the lab would have tested for HIV properly ? He also out down urgent as I was becoming very stressed so I got the results the next day. Would the test have been too rushed to check properly? Also the test was done only 9 weeks after exposure. Now I know most people are saying its would have shown up now but as I may of only sencroverted one week ago maybe antibodies would not show up yet?? I'm sorry for posting again but I'm scared worried young mum. Btw he also told me I we the phone. What of he read the results wrong or someone at the lab mixed mine up!?

Re: Can you trust g.p?

Somebody please help. I was readin through dr hhh and he said antibodies dont show up 17 days past exposure. I had my swollen lymph nodes and felt fever and sick at night only a week ago. That was 8 weeks past exposure. Maybe antibodies aren't showing up yet. I am now 9 weeks past exposure and got a negative but without enough antibodies I may not get negative in a few weeks????

Re: Can you trust g.p?

This is just anxiety making you second guess things, and all I'm going to say is that your thought processes are irrational, and you should consider seeking help for your anxiety.

Re: Can you trust g.p?

I really hope it is anxiety I can't sleep or eat. Do antibodies show up at 9 weeks even though the viral was a week ago?? And it was only at night I felt mainly ill.

EVERYONE who is infected is going to test positive at 9 weeks, unless they have a serious condition or are on serious medication (e.g. terminal cancer, cancer chemotherapy, immunosuppresive drugs, chronic IV drug abuse). You have no reason to worry.

Re: Can you trust g.p?

Ok thank you can I please ask one last thing , even if someone shows no sypmtoms or like me suffered them only a week ago will the still produce antibodies that can be detected in an 8-9 week scan. I do not think I have any off the things you listed wrong with me that can cause a delay. I hope I don't have anything that can cause delay.

Re: Can you trust g.p?

All you doing is asking the same questions with different words or unless your not able to understand what has been said to you. It certainly didnt require a new thread.

So i will try and make this simple. Any test at 6 weeks is 99% conclusive, so after that your more or less hiv negative. symptoms or lack of them do not tell you your status only testing but if you had ars symptoms you would test postive, as your negative they were nothing to do with hiv.

If you have hiv you will tested postive most certainly by now but the cdc guidelines require a 12 test and your testing now just for confirmation of your status. Nothing will delay the antibodys apart from what joggen has said and even that is rare anyway.

Time to calm down and take a deep breath and take in the information

Re: Can you trust g.p?

I guess everyone has their own story to their road of knowlage and information. Their are sites out their that cannot be posted here as they are commerical sites and they were helpfull and still are but i was also helped by a doctor who deals with hiv/stds and gave me plenty of information and reading material.

Yes they do. Many people have HIV and are totally unaware of it. Trying to diagnose HIV by symptoms, which you are clearly trying to do, is impossible. HIV is never diagnosed this way. It is diagnosed by an HIV test, there is no other way.
