Common Questions and Answers about Aids testing results


Avatar m tn Everyone with AIDS has a positve antibody test, as do many peole who have not progressed to the advanced stage of disease represented by AIDS. This will be my last answer. You do not have HIV or AIDS.
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 Hi, I would like some clarification. I got some in the community forum but I would like to get a doctors input and I thank you for your great help and knowledge. My exposure happened in April 2012 and I got tested for HIV 1/2 about a month later and it was negative. I was aware about the window period so I waited and got tested at 3 months and 6 months and it was negative.
Avatar m tn i used my hands to help a man that was masterbating, i moved his organ back and forth several times then he ejaculated, some of his semen came on contact with my hand and fingers, then he did so with me, he used his hand on my organ then i ejaculated, do i have risk to have aids if he was hiv posetive??
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 n tn As blood was extracted they were accidentally pricked with the needle of a patient who has the aids virus. PEP was used minutes after and the friend has confided in me. I dont know what to say as they are so loving and caring to patients now they are fearful. I dont work in that field and dont know what to say while they await results. I can see the fear in my friends eyes, please help me walk them through this as we remain hopeful.
Avatar m tn I believe I am experiencing late stage HIV/AIDS symptoms and repeatedly test negative with anti body tests. I have shingles now, continue to loss weight in my arms and legs and I have three brownish , purple spots on my thigh about the size of a quarter that look like bruises but do not fade or blanch when pressed upon.
Avatar m tn The New York AIDS institute advocate testing at 7 days with a PCR and also an antibody test because we know that early identification is key to disease control both in terms of onward spread and also minimising adverse effects of the disease process in newly infected individuals. So overall, the answer to your question is yes, your RNA PCR is good.
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 n tn Hi forum, is getting tested at an AIDS Resource Center safe? I know it is, but seeing others around there that look so sick is kind of scary to me. They took a finger swab of blood from me and later I was writing with a pen there and just was concerned about catching anything from that pen or touching other things. I know, really dumb, but still a concern for me.
Avatar n tn I read about a BIOKIT test that prints the results within minutes. Is it accurate? Is this the only test that gives results that quickly? Any suggestions or advice would be great. thank you.
Avatar n tn The test would have been reliable and conclusive 90 days or longer after your encounter. You do not have HIV - look for another reason for your symptoms.
Avatar f tn If my results were positive would the doctor have notified me or have had me come in, or would he make me wait untill my next appointment. I am just worried about my baby. I am now 12 weeks along. Thank you.
Avatar n tn actualy im afraid coz im sweating ... but this started by the time i started thinking abt it ... im a guy who thinks abt stuff alot ...
Avatar n tn I have not received the results yet. My Doctor said that the results are not absolute. Now what should I think? I have not been sexually active for 12 years, and have never shown any outward sign of any kind of outbreak, or discharge. I'm 54 yrs old and have had 4 partners between 1985 and 1997.
Avatar m tn Like what test will someone showing advanced AIDS symptoms but keeps testing negative for antibodies. Serereversion in advance AIDS patients is documented. I been having diarrhea, and losing weight, and having many bacterial infections. I had a legit risk with someone HIV positive. Broken condom and even had a brief flu like illness right after. In my mind I had HIV. Did nothing about it for three years. Finally been suffering from these symptoms and decided to get help.
Avatar n tn Your test will be 100% conclusive and accurate. Any HIV antibody test done 3 months after the last possible exposure is conclusive. I would say that 13 YEARS later, it would be conclusive :) The only diagnostic test for HIV is an antibody test.
Avatar f tn Your question doesn't make any sense. An HIV test will not detect chlamydia. An HIV test will only detect HIV. Furthermore, you don't test for AIDS because AIDS is not the virus, it's the syndrome that occurs after one has been infected with HIV and is dying from complications of HIV.
Avatar f tn t sound herpetic to me Can you tell me more about the testing that you had done? Can you get a copy of the results so I can look at them and help you sort out the results? There are many herpes antibody tests around, some good, some terrible, some individual, some combined. If you post them, I'll help you more.
