Common Questions and Answers about Aids testing centres


Avatar m tn Move on. You've been reported to Medhelp.
Avatar m tn I have been paranoid for a while thinking of my past.I was sexually active last year(last exposure 9 months back) and had protective sex with 8 prostitutes. I had taken 2 Elisa test and 2 HIV DUO test and one rapid test this year (last DUO and Rapid test yesterday) all of them were negative. I had taken these tests in Bangalore, I am little worried if these test were reliable as i have very little idea on the sensitivity and reliability of the testing centres.

Avatar f tn Thank you, I shall start writting things down. I have already seen a neurologist for an un diagnosed problem for 15 years, when I asked for help for the head aches I have been having for 4 years, it was him that suggested i took Amitripyline. I found out about headache centres & asked my GP if I could be refered, I feel I must talk to someone who is actually interested in headaches.
Avatar n tn ve read about people running around city centres across Europe injecting unsuspecting people with aids. Also people getting injected with aids in nightclubs, cinemas, phone boxes. What are the odds of being infected if this happens to someone. Are there any stats available?!
Avatar f tn I just found out about 12 years ago my mate was unfaithful and i have gotten tested recently with an third generation eia antibody test hiv1/2 with reflexes, a rapid blood test, 4 oraquick home tests and all came back negative. But ive read ur post that some people with aids antibodies wont show on those tests. Im very scared that im in that stage and the tests i took arent sufficient enough to know for sure.
Avatar f tn I had sex with multiple partners who are working in licensed massage centres. All my encounters were with condoms and I had unprotected oral sex with a lady where she given me oral sex. I used to suck their nipples and fingering them. Do I need to get tested for STD/STI?
Avatar m tn anal sex.....yesterday after one year i had hiv testing which turns to that conclusive.....however while taking my blood the nurse fails to take my blood through syringe first time then she took blood from my right arm....what could be reason for this? it possible that syringe might have hiv blood?.....or am over reacted.
10906412 tn?1429112558 There is never a need to ever test pass this 3 months window and i have learned it the hard way by testing all the way pass 6 months, with more than 15 negative lab and rapid tests. Just would like to share my personal experience with you guys. Cheers all and stay safe!
Avatar n tn You have HIV specialist Doctors on here telling people 4 weeks depending on the risk is ok and you could live with that---and then you guys over here telling people that 4 weeks is ****---well I trust someone who is actually doing the test on me to give me the right info----I am done with this site. AIDSMEDS is fantastic--this place create anxiety!
Avatar f tn um I was with my bf for like a year anyways he left me about a month ago he just left didnt tell me he was leaving I think he may have hiv or aids and has infected me ive been feeling sick for a while off and on but I have not been tested in about a year anyways ive got this rly bad cough and sometimes I feel like its hard to breathe it been like tht for a couple weeks now I dont have insurance and ive been too much of a coward to go to the hospital because im by myself I cnt tell my family...
Avatar n tn The bottom line is that I am quite concerned you may have HIV, perhaps advanced -- i.e. overt AIDS. I hope not -- but you need to be tested immediately. Do not do it by online or other independent testing on your own. See a doctor or clinic with knowledge about HIV/AIDS then follow the advice you receive. Your sexual lifestyle, conisidered by itself, gives mixed messages on risk. Heterosexual with consistent condom use suggests low risk.
Avatar m tn This subject is discussed here ad nauseum. Anyone is free to decide for themselves when they feel comfortable testing. ON THIS FORUM, we adhere to the official guidelines, the doctors take a more liberal stance. Dr. HHH often posts a few links to posts he's made that explains in detail about testing protocols, and why they give the advice THEY do, and why we give the advice we do. They are a good read.
Avatar n tn Im very worried....that I might progress to the aids stage and die without anyone knowing what of because of the gestation period.I had sex with a hooker 7 months ago but i have been sick ever since.
Avatar m tn Thanks a lot kind sir. If you don't mind me asking, what are your thoughts on PCR testing? PCR DNA? Are they worthwhile?
Avatar m tn As of November 2009, 23,731 HIV/AIDS cases have been reported in the country (National HIV/AIDS Program of the Ministry of Health). The Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) estimates that in 2007, 35,000 Salvadorans were living with HIV (UNAIDS 2008 Report on the Global AIDS Epidemic). Incidence appears to have declined since 2004, but there is a fear that HIV/AIDS cases are underreported due to lack of an effective monitoring system.
Avatar f tn Hi Miz74 Personally, I advise to test to 12 weeks ,however there are many sexual health centres in Australia who will advise that 6 weeks (42 days) is conclusive with the DUO. You can start to ease up with your paranoia knowing the odds are greatly in your favour in terms of testing.
