anal sex and 12 weeks neg
 
Hi everyone
I am a male who had unprotected receptive anal with another male(who is high risk). Since last 3 months i have been through hell. I am really exhausted from all this worrying. I have tested at 6, 8, 11 and 12 weeks after exposure. I am really confused and frustrated looking at 6 months guidelines . The test i took at 11 weeks was ab and p24 ag does that mean 100 percent accuracy? Is 12 weeks enough? Can i move on?

Hiya. The volume of tests and more so the last test at 11 weeks is confirmation that you dont have HIV. The cdc guidlines are 3 months not 6 months, I will say in the future, use condoms, they are the only way to prevent having a risk when having sex.

Regards

Thank you . The only thing that scares me is the 97 percent at 3 months which is like 1 in 33 people. What do you think about this figure?

outdated. 3 month tests are 99.89% conclusive with modern tests. unless you are a long term iv drug user, on medication for an organ transplant or on aggresive chemo then you have nothing to worry about.

One of my lymph node on the neck is swollen. I heard this is a very strong symptom and i never recall anytime in my life having swollen lymph nodes. Can i forget about this node because of my negative tests

You dont have hiv, so anything health wise cannot be related. If your concerned then see your doctor regarding your health.

Hi there again,
I have a little bit of confusion. Experts say that 3 months is conclusive with modern tests. Countries like uk has mmodern tests but what about other countries like middle eastern countries, do they have modern tests too?

All tests these days are modern in terms of manufacturing. I don't believe old generation tests are manufactured now, their is no good reason to do so.

Buddy, please stop looking for ways to frighten yourself.

You had a scare and have tested, conclusively, negative. You have not got HIV, let it go and move on with your life.

Kevin,

Hi
Thanks for the reassurance. I am moving on but i have one question only.
Does takinh antihitamines(chlorophinaramine maleate) delay antibody production?
