Aids testing ontario

Common Questions and Answers about Aids testing ontario


Avatar m tn You will have to ask your doctor or call your local clinic who will advise you on where to go to have this test.By the way I think that is an excellent method of testing,a DUO at 4 weeks followed by an antibody test at 12 weeks for a 100% conclusive result.Way to go.All the best.
372366 tn?1284403873 Finally.....An Ontario man facing first-degree murder charges in the deaths of two former sexual partners,he failed to disclose he had the virus that causes AIDS and in some cases "lied" to women about his health status.

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 Clinic doctor "I won't give you this, you need a family doctor". A legal fact or other excuse ? FACTS: 1. I cannot get a doctor, up to 9 months developing trust & trueth, then refused. 2. I ask for copies of medical test results, often forget a the time, refused latter or $25.00 per page. I do have a "history" on paper for 7-8 years. 3. The new doctor application form/questioniare: No interest in my files. Yesterdays app.
Avatar m tn Nine weeks ago, I was with a female escort. I had a IGG test from Life Labs six weeks after the encounter and got my results today. I live in Ontario so I don't know if it was a Herpeselect test or not. I do know it was an IgG serology tests. I tested negative. Today I was at the Toronto Sexual Health Clinic and I asked the doctor about it. I told him that I read that most sites say to wait 3 - 4 months for a test.
Avatar n tn I am a heterosexual female and my last exposure was unprotected vaginal intercourse with a male of unknown status on November 27th, 2014. I am from Ontario, Canada and i know that labs here use either the 3rd generation or the 4th generation combo test. I have no information on what type my doctor used. Anyways, i tested negative at 6 weeks and negative again at 8 weeks. I know 12 months is conclusive but is it likely for my 8 week negative result to change to a positive?
Avatar m tn Your baby will be fine it takes a 1-2 months for it to be out of your system and babies system. Dont worry about it as long as you dont do it again. And for drug testing they dont test the poop.
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!
404715 tn?1233829631 Welcome. I'm sorry to hear about your all too familiar story. As you probably know two weeks of antibiotics is not nearly enough. Also blood testing does not show antibodies for several weeks after the bite (if ever). So your test was probably done too soon. I am not aware of any physicians in Ontario but hopefully someone here will. How far are you from the US border? I know of people who come here to the states for treatment.
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 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.
