hiv

Avatar m tn I also experienced chills,sweats-fever, muscle aches and oral thrush.I tested at 3 months and 6 months and my antibody serostatus has been declared negative.Im somwhat concerned of the validity of these tests as a result of articles i have read on the net about delayed seroconversion and on posted by a member of this forum http://www.cdc.gov/eid/content/15/1/129.htm :about a woman who tested multiple times antibody negative and still died of hiv.How can I know for sure that im safe?
Avatar f tn I also took Hep A,B,C and syphilis tests at 4 months mark and they were also negative. My doctor says that I am conclusively negative after 6 months HIV test but I am still thinking about HIV. Thank you guys.
Avatar n tn I am just scared of the symptoms that I & my wife had. that mean it's sexually transmitted, right? one other thing, not every HIV infected person will show antibodies by the three months. I have read here one HIV -positive who tested negative at six weeks and positive at 7 months. Also, the doc here refers to the "modern tests" and I don't think we have the last up to date tests here in my country. does it make any difference?
Avatar f tn Please tell me hiv test conclusive at 3 months instead of 6 months so stressed out
Avatar m tn does type of hiv antibody test at 6 months? or 6 months is 100 percent conclusive for all hiv tests?..
Avatar m tn Thank God it was negative. It really has also been a long worrysome 6 months for me. Some of these Doctors still stick to 6 months and others stick with the new guideline of 3 months. This confused me and made me not believe and this is why i did 180 day final test.
Avatar m tn How do you comment on the following statement "A negative result in the HIV screening test precludes the existence of HIV antibod-ies and p24 antigen at the time point of testing. The security of this result, however, depends particularly on the time interval from the possible transmission event. This has important consequences: 1. HIV testing immediately after a possible transmission is not meaningful, as no HIV antibodies are yet formed.
Avatar f tn I read that in todays world, there really is no false negative at 6 months. That most people who wont show up until 6 month have some type of weak immune system, or they are taking a type of medication that weakens the immune system. I read that at 3 months, 99% of people test pos at 3 months. I got that from a site I googled. So can anyone give me accurate info on this? Serious answers only please.
Avatar m tn Hi, at 5 months past exposure I have tested negative for HIV antibodies through a rapid oral swab test. I have tested negative also at 6 weeks, 3 months, and 4 months too. I have not felt 100% back to normal though after getting flu-like symptoms within a month after exposure, and the clinic's paper I received my results on at 5 months stated that results aren't conclusive until SIX months. 1. Do I need to retest?? 2.
Avatar m tn ever heard of any1 who tested negative at 5 months then turned into positive at 6 months?
Avatar m tn I went to a dermatologist and he told me to come back at 6 months if I was still itching (which I am on and off again....it comes and goes especially at night) This made me think it could possibly be scabies since its mainly itchy at night but one doctor told me he didn't think it was. Im itchy in the day but not as much usually. I'm also going to the dentist to get checked up on because my mouth has had a bad smell and in addition I have noticed that the top of my mouth is a weird color.
1441802 tn?1284235731 I have had a total of 3 maybe 4 rapid HIV tests since my high risk exposure. One at 3 months, and now 6 months. I believe I have a healthy immune system because I am rarely sick. Can I finally KNOW I am HIV-? I am not an IV user, I am not on chemo, and I have not received a transplant. Thanks everyone!
Avatar m tn After 8 weeks i was tested negative for HIV with HIV Rapid test. Again on 17th July 2010(that is today) i have attended ELISA (HIV 1 & 2) tests.And the results says 0.175( less than .422 negative and greaterthan .422 Positive).I had this ELISA test conducted at a good lab.When i visited the Urologist he said its negative only. Is this test enough to confirm i am not infected ? I think its conducted at 3 months time exactly. Does that kiss has anything to do ?
Avatar n tn (i was negative at 4.5 months of last exposure....but was at risk throughout the entire 6 months atleast 4 times a week).

Avatar f tn I'm in similar situation with you. I'm at 6 months post-exposure, preparing for another test. Have you gotten your results yet?
1883607 tn?1320775762 Your 100% Hiv negative at 3 Months, 6 Months is outdated.No futher testing is required.
Avatar m tn 3 months IS conclusive.
Avatar m tn I tested after 6 months i found negative.(Test was done by Immunoassay analyzer).But still I am having these problems.What can I do now?
Avatar n tn Hi, ive been with the same girl for 6 months. i tested negative at 3 months but she wont test b/c she denies she has hiv and that its stupid because no one has ever came inside her. she did have one partner where she was with for a long time that withdrew but never came inside her. we started having unprotected sex since early october after she got on birth control and i got tested late january.
Avatar n tn Anyways, I was tested after 5 months and the test came back negative. I have done research and it says that the HIV virus could take up to 6 months to show up in a blood test. I need advice on what to do.
