Avatar n tn You are reading wayyyyy too much into each word. If you have HIV symptoms and test neg at 6+weeks, so what? Your "Hiv" symptoms are not "Hiv" symptoms. Since HIV symptoms lines up with a million other things you certainly have one of the million other things. Most brought on by stress. Your risk factor and testing trumps all your symptoms. If you hav a 6-8 week test your done, move on, audios, next subject. Symptoms: HIV symptoms dont hang out.

Avatar n tn Maybe~but I have to relate a similar worry and I will be getting tested again soon. I had very bad anemia in 2005 for which the cause was never found but was treated with simple a blood transfusion and simple iron supplementation-all levels rechecked last month and everything is in great shape. All counts improved, reds and whites, although whites were never a problem in the first place. Two weeks ago I got a marked tingling in my foot which I went to the chiropractor for.
Avatar f tn Antibody to HIV-1/2, indicator of infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Nucleic Acid Test (NAT) for hepatitis C (HCV), hepatitis B (HBV) and HIV. Screening test for antibodies to syphilis. NAT for West Nile Virus (WNV). Enzyme-linked immunoassay (ELISA) test for Trypanosoma cruzi (Chagas Disease). In addition, all platelet apheresis donations are tested for bacterial contamination. I hope this will put your mind at rest.
Avatar m tn HIV 1 and 2 Ag/Ab and Human Immunodeficiency Virus 1 (HIV) by RT-PCR,QNT and two tests results came back negative...I saw an Otolaryngology doctor, and he gave me an antibiotic....but my sore throat doesn't seem to be healing... although I am done with the antibiotic.. and although he told me he couldn't find anything in my throat...my questions are: 1. could the sore throat (1 month for now) be a symptom of HIV? 2. How long does a sore throat last if someone is infected by HIV? 3.
Avatar f tn I went to LabCorp for testing (doesn't everyone?). I had the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), DNA by PCR With HIV Antibodies by ICMA. Results were fine/not detected. This was just over the 4.5 weeks from last possible exposure. They use a third generation test for the antibodies, correct? With a window period of 2-4 weeks. I am a little concerned over these results as the clinic had difficulty drawing blood. September 10th, 2008: I developed oral thrush.
Avatar f tn Center detection reagent is used South Korea's third generation of SD produced reagents, issued by the United Nations down, I carefully read the packaging of reagents under the above said is that the Korean production of the human immunodeficiency SD detection reagent (colloidal gold method), the production date of 2008 October 24, there are a deadline is October 2010 24, director of the Center for Disease Control told me, SD production of reagents accuracy is very high, 6-8 weeks after having
Avatar n tn A human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) test detects antibodies to HIV in the blood. This determines whether an HIV infection is present (HIV-positive). HIV infects white blood cells called CD4+ cells, which are part of the body's immune system that help fight infections. HIV causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), a long-term chronic disease that cannot be cured. After the original infection, it takes between 2 weeks and 6 months for antibodies to HIV to appear in the blood.
Avatar n tn One of the doctors please answer this question if at all possible. Thank you! A few weeks ago I had a one time unprotected encounter with a female of unknown HIV status. About two weeks later my lymph nodes swelled, had a fever, the works. One of my tonsils also swelled up pretty bad. I was worried it was ARS. Since then, the symptoms have pretty much subsided - other than the tonsil. I am now being treated by an ENT for a peritonsillar abscess. I thought my HIV were over.
Avatar n tn i couldn't hack it anymore so my exposure was on OCT 7 2012 i tested 29 OCT 2012 the test was HUMAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS (HIV) ANTIBODY/ANTIGEN COMBO (SERUM) Not Detected (by Abbott Architect HIV-1 and HIV-2) That was the result. My body feels really funny I know something is wrong. If I had HIV would this test have shown any indicators of the Virus?

Avatar m tn AIDS is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). By killing or damaging cells of the body's immune system, HIV progressively destroys the body's ability to fight infections and certain cancers. People diagnosed with AIDS may get life-threatening diseases called opportunistic infections, which are caused by microbes such as viruses or bacteria that usually do not make healthy people sick.

480448 tn?1426952138 I am very honored to be a regular contributor on the HIV Prevention Forum here at MH. The forum is very busy, and we often get the same inquiries over and over. I figured that putting together a journal entry covering the most popular topics, and just laying out the facts may be helpful. I also invite Lizzie Lou and Teak to share their thoughts, and to cover anything I may have missed.
Avatar n tn Ok, to start off with iam going to go on the understanding that you are refering to the dangeriously infectious HIV ( Human immunodeficiency virus ). And that you are serious in what you are saying "Infection with HIV occurs by the transfer of blood, semen, vaginal fluid, pre-ejaculate, or breast milk. Within these bodily fluids, HIV is present as both free virus particles and virus within infected immune cells.
1024580 tn?1331577721 This is important for all sorts of reasons, not least the fact that we know that the key period for passing HIV on to another person is in the first few months after infection, when the amount of virus in the infected person's blood stream, semen or vaginal fluids is likely to be very high.

Avatar m tn I just received negative test results for HIV antibodies at a little under a day less than 8 weeks after exposure. The test was through labcorp and was panel 083824. Looking it up at labcorps site it says "Human Immunodeficiency Virus 1/O/2 (HIV-1/O/2) Antibodies, Preliminary Test With Confirmation". This seems clear to me that it tests for all types of antibodies including type 2 and 0.

Avatar f tn ***@**** Individual nucleic acid-amplification testing (NAT) was recently recommended by Brazilian legislation and has been implemented at some blood banks in the city of São Paulo, Brazil, in an attempt to reduce the transfusion transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis C viruses. This screening test can identify donations made during the immunological window period before seroconversion.
Avatar f tn Um...dogs dont carry HIV.

Avatar m tn hello doctor, how are you???? first of all here is my risk... i had sex with a CSW in lahore pakistan, the oral was without condom,she licked my balls also my anal part. and i used condom for verginal sex....in next round again oral was unprotected, and i used condom for anal..i only inserted my penis in her *** for a min, i did not discharge, i pulled it out and change the condom...
Avatar n tn The acute clinical events surrounding the acquisition of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) have not been well characterized. OBJECTIVE: To further define the clinical and epidemiologic presentation of primary HIV infection. DESIGN: Descriptive cohort study. SETTING: University research clinic. PATIENTS: 46 adults (43 men and 3 women) with primary HIV infection who enrolled in the study a median of 51 days after HIV seroconversion. MEASUREMENTS: Documentation of recent HIV seroconversion.
Avatar f tn The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) can be spread by the following: •Contaminated blood transfusions and blood product •Intimate sexual contac •The use of contaminated needles and syringes The virus may also spread from the mother to her baby, either at birth or through breastfeeding. People who become infected with HIV may have no symptoms for up to 10 years, but they can still pass the infection to others.
Avatar n tn The Human Immunodeficiency Virus is fragile. Once the virus is outside the body in a dry form, it dies immediately. Even in a wet state, it does not live long when exposed to heat, detergents, or disinfectants. When stored in blood banks at 4°C, it can live for about 3 weeks (or longer), or till the white cell disintegrates, but in a frozen state it can survive for years.
Avatar m tn Chemiluminescence . and at 23 and 58 days after the first . and 30 second is : IDENTIFICATION OF HIV -1 proviral DNA METHODS: Polymerase chain reaction polymerase chain reaction and nested polymerase ( nested PCR) endpoint. I Found the sexserver and I pay him a 4th generation test like mine day 58 and 30 respectively, also negative. My test are conclusive? I don't have HIV?
