Aids testing in jamaica

Common Questions and Answers about Aids testing in jamaica


Avatar m tn so what if hiv 2 is here in jamaica n they cant pick it up in 3 months with the test or 4 months
Avatar m tn 1)Hi,my first question is can CMV interfere in Hiv test 2) i had hiv ag/bg combo axsym and vdrl testing which was negative,can the virus be detected in both these test even if you have aids and take the test past 5 years ,im still worried because i had OI which i had mentioned earlier im still nervous about the hiv virus,is it possible it might have turned into full blown aids thats why the results were negative,can you explain what is full blown aids 3)Do i need cd4 count test,please explain
Avatar n tn Thanks, i was worried that there may have been some outdated test still in use in some parts of the world that was only able to test for full blown aids rather than the early stages of HIV. So i can assume that international testing standards are more or less equal?
Avatar n tn 2) You can trust the test results in standard HIV testing centers, pretty much anywhere in the world and certainly in the US and other industrialized countries. 3) Yes; see above. There is no realistic possibility that results have different reliability at 89 versus 90 days; that's a major hair-split. 4) Hyper-conservative sources sometimes recommend waiting 6 months for reliable testing. They are in the small minority and most experts disagree, as I do.
Avatar f tn While in the ocean in Jamaica, it was believed I was stung by a fish or brushed up on a stone which one week later caused a huge blister on the side of my foot, doctors had never seen anything like it. Had to scrape the fluid filled blister off leaving a 3rd degree burn type sore. I was sent to wound care. After two weeks on antibotics I developed another blister on the opposite foot - went thru the same process - two weeks later and off antibotics I have just developed another blister.
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 m tn I have seen a post in the community saying that the fourth generation test can completely exclude AIDS after 28 days. I would like to ask the next. After having sex 26 days, did 4 generations test, can you rule out AIDS infection? I wonder if the 26 day fourth generation test is the same as the 28 day fourth generation test? Does it have to be 28 days later? Does 28 days include the day when I have sex?
Avatar m tn Should i get more test done because i experienced pain in testis some time back and buzzing in the penis ?
Avatar f tn I previously asked a question what the total risk was after a night of drinking, and possible unprotected sex with vaginal intercourse but finished orally with swallowing of ejaculation. I however did not mention that the man was Black, and moved here from Jamaica. Does that put this one episode of stupidity into a "higher" risk??? and if so what are my total odds of testing Negative in 2 weeks, thats all i have left for my 3 month window, thank you again for any responses!
Avatar m tn influences on measurement error and participation bias in studies of sexual behavior. Psychol Bull. 1990 Nov;108(3):339–362. There is no debate (among experts) about the HIV risks associated with oral sex. The risk is so low that almost nobody who cares for HIV infected patients has ever had a patient believed to have been infected that way. Among experts, it's a semantic issue about using terms like "no risk" and "very low risk".
Avatar m tn Hi doctors heres my situation about 6 months ago i was in jamaica on vacation and had sex with a prostitute from kingston jamaica she was 21 years old it was mainly oral sex but i rubbed my penis on her vagina and she was really wet i went inside her for about 10 seconds then i stoped.

Avatar f tn I read on your forum dr Hunter had said in the 1990s they would diagnose people with AIDS even without a positive HIV test! I am panicking so much right now.
1936952 tn?1323603990 It feels exactly like the left arm with the burning pain. I know it is just another test in life and God will take care of me. I am back in Jamaica now. Thanks again for responding.
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 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 m tn Overall prevalence has increased since the first case was detected in 1984. El Salvador has the second-largest number of people living with HIV/AIDS in Central America, behind Guatemala. 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).
