hiv

Avatar n tn No these arent symptoms fo HIV infection at all and test at three month is reliable but one monhyt -ve test is good indication of HIV -ve after three months as well.
Avatar m tn If I had symptoms of HIV at any stage, would my test show positive, or could it still show negative? Testing was done at 3 weeks then again at two months.
Avatar f tn A few days ago I did put on some new benzoyl peroxide cream. Allergic reaction or hiv? I have no other symptoms except tiredness here and there which I also have low thyroid and I have been experiencing headaches. I'm paranoid I have hiv due to the tiredness and rash.

936016 tn?1332769204 Many of the questions we answer on this Forum and also the Freedomhealth Sexual Health Forum relate to anxiety about HIV and also possible early HIV symptoms. One of the main problems in relying on HIV symtoms themselves is that they are notoriously vague and almost all the symptoms may in fact be symptoms of a different disease. The best method always of diagnosing HIV is to have a modern HIV test.
Avatar n tn if someone is past the 3month window and has all the symptoms because they are hiv+, wouldnt they def. test positive thereafter because of there bodies reaction to the virus (barring chemo/cancer etc.)?
Avatar m tn Mine is a story of a 28yer old out to have a bit of fun and using a condom only to start showing ARS symptoms in Jan close to 2 months from the said "safe-event". All antibody tests came out negative till around 110 days post exposure and that's when it hit me that the condom had failed!!!! Just did my WB today and it showed 2 env bands(120 and 160).Am in shock and I can't bring myself to believe these results. Where does a man go from here?
Avatar n tn 2) NO ARS symptoms showed up. Can the test still pickup the HIV antibodies/antigen, whatever? 3) Must one test outside the 12 weeks, let's say 85 days onwards? 4) Gastricitis/indigestion an ARS symptom? I wish we have more details on Help 21's case, such as whether she was a stage 3 cancer, IV drug user etc. Whatever it is, I am really sorry for her, wishing her all the best. But if she is faking it, I hope she would come forward and clear this up. thanks guys.
Avatar n tn Symptoms not related to HIV. You did not have a risk with the use of a condom. See a Dr for your symptoms.
Avatar n tn As I said during your last exchange with me, your exposure was no risk for HIV. The symptoms you describe are not suggestive of HIV. It appears that you are looking on the internet and trying to match your symptoms, which are most likely all due to anxiety, to symptoms of HIV infection. This is an error since there are no symptoms which are highly specific for HIV and as a result you can find reports of just about anything being associated with HIV.
Avatar n tn And even it is due to HIV, it would mean she caught the virus 1-2 weeks before onset of her symptoms -- i.e. a long time after your exposure to her. So you can definitely expect your repeat test to also be negative. Let me know when you have the result, and stay mellow while you wait for it.
Avatar f tn Does anyone recognize these symptoms and could they mean that I'm HIV positive after this encounter? The guy and I broke up around the time I started feeling the vaginal irritation (I found out he'd been cheating) and I wonder if stress could cause some of these symptoms.
Avatar n tn i read that cipro does not work on viruses. i went over an extensive list of hiv symptoms over the net. i never had rash...thrush..serious headaches..ect... but i did read that prostatis is a symptom. years before the risky sexual encounter..i had bowel issues ( stress and diet ) my question is this...everywhere i read..i see uti's in men could mean hiv..and i'm terrified. other than this " uti " ..i don't really have any of the other symptoms.
Avatar f tn Not sure what you're asking. Once a person is HIV+, they will always be positive. A positive person who has unprotected intercourse with ANYONE, pregnant or not...can infect that person. Having unprotected sex with a positive person is always a risk, but will not DEFINITELY result in that person getting infected. Does that help?
Avatar m tn Even mouth ulcers and night sweats are reported as anxiety symptoms. I again repeat HIV cant be judged by symptoms. Because there is more than 30 other viral iinfections that can be transmited quicker from sex. Go and take a hiv test and come back. I am confident you are negative. That is the only way to feel stress free.
Avatar f tn I am 23, I took a HIV test (mouth swab) and it came out with a faint positive. I want to seriously die, I dont know how i am going to cope with this. i feel so alone. I dont know who to talk to or what to do. I wont get the blood test back til a week and i just cant stop crying.
Avatar m tn Is it possible that I have had mono this whole time and havent showed symptoms except for swollen lymph nodes until recently or is it a good chance it is HIV? I do not want to go in for another HIV test because I am too scared of the results. Ever since Nov 30 of last year of have practiced safe sex. I don't know what to do. I am so scared and it has taken over my life. Please somebody give me some reassurance. I havent lost a dramatic amount of weight and havent developed a rash of any kind.
Avatar n tn So pls get ELISA and western blot done to check your HIV status. Some countries have HIV testing done at home.For this HIV kits are available in the market. The testing procedure involves pricking your finger, placing drops of blood on a specially treated card, and then mailing the card in for testing at a licensed laboratory. The test uses traditional ELISA and Western blot procedures and has been shown to be as reliable as HIV tests used by doctors and hospitals.
Avatar n tn I'm sure you can rely on the negative result of HIV testing at a major medical center like U of Kentucky. Therefore, your symptoms cannot be due to HIV. And they don't sound particularly like HIV/AIDS symptoms anyway. You should continue to follow up with your own doctor and with the psychiatrist to whom she referred you. I agree your symptoms sound consistent with anxiety and/or depression.
Avatar m tn This is a forum for individuals who are HIV positive or have AIDS to connect and support each other. Take your questions to the HIV Prevention Forum.
Avatar n tn by 3-6 months everyone who was infected would of showed up positive symptoms mean nothing with hiv your symptoms are due to something else
Avatar m tn but from first day after the exposure I have many hiv symptoms like fatigue, weight loss, tongue candida,stomachache. also now after 7 weeks my nails have straight line and I have constipation. I want to know am I hiv positive or not is it possible that my test result after 12 weeks became positive? why I have all of these symptoms ?
Avatar m tn On the other hand, ELISA has a low specificity, so it has a high false-positive rate. If you test positive, with ELISA, they will test you again with a Western Blot to ensure that you have the disease and that you didn't test false-positive.
Avatar f tn I had a possible HIV exposure on February 19th. Had flu-like symptoms about 4 weeks after. I was tested on March 29th and I tested negative. According to users on this sight, this is a good sign. But still having headaches, diarrhea and loss of appetite. I have noticed that my breasts have enlarged in the past couple of weeks or so. I have heard that this is a sign in women who may be HIV positive. Thoughts on what the heck is going on?
Avatar n tn what if the person having hiv like symptoms. At the time if person having hiv like symptoms, will the antibody test be +ev if person has real hiv infections ? Or symptoms cannot come without tests getting positive ? what's the dependency between tests positive and symptoms started ? Jeff.
