1454376 tn?1285302334 Exposure; August 19, 2010, testing: November 19, 2010)? Please respond. I took another HIV antibody test last October 19, 2010 (61 days after the possible exposure). It was non-reactive. Additional question: Do I still have to test either November 11 or 19, 2010 for a conclusive HIV test?
Avatar f tn I understand u r following américains guidelines but if you were in my country ans the guidelines were saying 6 weeks ? Would u follow the guidelines.
Avatar m tn You all strictly follow the testing at 3 months only conclusive for unprotected sex as per CDC guidelines. But you wont accept as CDC says "Unprotected oral sex can also be a risk for HIV transmission, but it is a much lower risk than anal or vaginal sex." Even though low risk, testing is essential or not?
Avatar m tn the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV and the British Infection Society have published new testing guidelines for HIV in the UK. The consensus advice recommends the use of an HIV DUO test (4th generation combination antibody and p24 antigen) as a first line test because it has the advantage of reducing the window period to one month (28 days). visit:
Avatar m tn As from previous post that i'm posted on february, i was been told by Teak and Lizzie Lou that i'm not exposed to HIV related. Due to anxiety, i still did a few test until last week was the 10th week. I did EZ Trust Rapid Screen Test which provided by my country here. It was all negative. I did it on 7th-10th weeks and it all came negative. Teak and Lizzie, do i still have to make any further test or you guys still stick with 3 months(12 weeks) conclusive results?
Avatar m tn I went for an HIV test 2 days after my risk, i was wondering if the rapid HIV test i took is accurate because my results came back negative or i should take the EIA test?
Avatar m tn You are HIV NEGATIVE slot of ifs and buts about 4th gen test at 28 days is over 98% accurate at 5 months 100% Medx
Avatar m tn negative My doctor will perform an HIV DUO test (the test was approved in Canada in July 2010) this coming Monday July 11. Will my cortisone injection from June the 6th affect the results of my DUO test? Thank You for all your hard work.

Avatar f tn i wont mention the other sites name again but a knowledgable guy such as yourself must have looked on there and seen what im talking about, they posted the above guidelines in 2010.what hymn sheet are they reading from?
Avatar n tn by Emily_MHModerator , May 06, 2010 07:28AM On MedHelp, we follow the guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), test manufacturers, FDA, and our experts, Drs. HHH and Hook. For this forum, it is 3 months. Yes, a 6 or 8 week test may be accurate, but it's not conclusive until 3 months. Saying that the 6 or 8 week test is a good indicator is fine, but to be conclusive, testing must happen at 3 months.
Avatar m tn The DUO test approved in June 18th 2010 is conclusive at 3 months post exposure.
Avatar f tn Interesting post yin, I went through massive HIV anxiety & could not find those guidelines so well done & thanks for sharing. I fully ephasise with you, it is hard. I have seen so much evidence about the DUO being accurate at four weeks, France say six in black & white from four years ago - two years beofre th FDA even licensed these tests dor use in the USA.
Avatar m tn This is not a question, I am sharing information from officials and not opinions even from specialized Drs. The Window defer from test to test From 4 weeks to Maximum 12 weeks depend on the test taken Lets start in the most conservative which is CDC in USA: What does a negative test result mean? A negative result does not necessarily mean that you don't have HIV. That's because of the window period—the period after you may have been exposed to HIV but before a test can detect it.
Avatar n tn I never let him, until he slipped it in once for a minute until I made him pull it out and put a condom on. I stopped seeing him after that, and never knew his hiv status. A few weeks later I got really sick, very high fever, swollen glands, extreme fatigue that lasted about two days. Since then I have only slept with 3 other people, all protected.
