Common Questions and Answers about Hiv test new york


Avatar m tn I did perform oral sex on a few of the ladies i was with - i never had oral herpes before this - i never realized that you can possibly get that from oral sex - im not sure if its directly related but it must be? I took a HIV test after the bout with chlamidia (about 4-5 weeks after the last sexual encounter) and came back negative. All of my experiences with these women were vaginal intercourse (for not very long at all) and oral sex - never, not once anal.
Avatar m tn Hello guys, I went to an STD clinic in Brooklyn, NY a few weeks ago to test for HIV after I had unprotected sex 6 weeks prior. I was given a rapid finger test, which was negative and was also drawn blood from my vein for what they said was a new HIV test offered, called "Acute HIV Test" They mentioned that a window period of this test is about 3 weeks. They said that this is a very new and expensive test. The results were ready today, two weeks later and they were negative.
Avatar m tn I was walking around New York City with my relatives 2 hours ago. I stepped on something by accident and when I looked down it was a needle. I didn't feel it puncture my sneakers, but I didn't check it good to see if there was blood in it since it was in a crowded area near time square. Am I at risk for any of the hepatitis, hiv or anything else. Should I go to the ER for PeP?
Avatar n tn I just wanted to follow up on T-Bug's question. I took an OraQuick test in New York State, and am unclear whether that qualifies as a "modern test." Mine came back negative at 6 & 9 weeks, and I plan to do a final one at 12 weeks, following New York State guidelines, but the hiv counselor said I needed to test at 6 months and 1 year, and I can't figure out what's making him test so long-term.
Avatar n tn This was in the news recently where a police officier was bitten by an HIV+ offender and has had regular HIV tests at the advice of an HIV specialist.He has tested negative thus far--this is why I reassured the OP they had no risk.
Avatar n tn I just took a hiv test for a life insurance policy and now i am freaking out! If i somehow gave my wife hiv i would just die.. Please help!
Avatar n tn Hi, I was tested for STD's including HIV, through my doctor, not a free clinic, in the state of New York. My doctor told me the test results would be available in four days, set an appointment for me to see him in four weeks, and sent me to the lab for testing. I requested this test as a routine test, I've no reason to believe I've been exposed to anything. I was informed HIV test results can't be revealed over the phone in NY.
Avatar m tn Do you have an idea how often free clinics/testing centers in New York make the wrong call on rapid test results, i.e. do not see a faint line on the test, or any other number of reasons ........ Thank you very, very much for humoring my questions in what is a crazy situation and difficult time.
Avatar m tn However, until now no study has examined the virological plausibility of the belief that sharing equipment to sniff drugs may contribute to hepatitis transmission. Investigators in New York therefore recruited 38 adults who snort drugs and have hepatitis C at a neighbourhood health clinic.
Avatar n tn I am a 22 year old male living in New York City, I just moved here a month and a half ago. I am in good health and rarely get sick, I have no got sick in 5 years. Anyways, exactly 25 days ago I had protected sex with a prostitute. She was also 22 years old and informed me that she had been doing this for 2 years now. She seemed very clean and well kept. About 2 hours before she arrived I took a shower and shaved my pubic area because I thought it was unattractive, ha ha.
Avatar m tn 3 weeks post this incident i had a rapid hiv1/2 anditbody test (negative) and what is called an acute hiv test at one of the nyc department of health clinics here in new york, which i gather is an rna pcr test, which came back negative. I was told that after this test there was no need for any further testing, as this would have caught any virus in my blood at the time due to it's sensitivity.
Avatar m tn Doctor, the reason why I'm asking you these questions is because I read an article on google about a women from cameroon living in paris and a man in new york having rare strains of HIV. Are u aware of these reports and if so did they test positive with current testing and the new strain was identified after by further testing?
Avatar f tn Cumming, I'm writing you from Germany with a problem which gets more serious to me every day. I did an HIV-combination-test (HIV 1/2 - antibodies / p24 Ag) here in Germany last friday. It was negative, i got my results a few hours later that day. My "risk" might sound a bit stupid, I got pretty drunk on the evening of 1st may this year, I was going home by cab that night, but several scenes of this cab ride are simply missing, e.g. the few steps from the cab to my house door.
Avatar n tn Any idea where I can get a DUO HIV test? I am in the New York / New Jersey area. I can not find a place that offers these tests. Thanks for your help.
Avatar m tn This is especially true in transplant centers in the San Francisco, LA and New York City areas where it is not uncommon to have patients very ill and close to death before there is any liver available to them. For example I am waiting for a transplant due to hepatitis C, cirrhosis and liver cancer.
Avatar f tn You are conclusively negative and you didn't have to test past 3 months. See your doctor for your symptoms they have nothing to do with HIV.
Avatar f tn "With the HIV antibody test used in new york state, virtually all people who are infected will test positive within one month of being infected. Most people will test positive even sooner" This is what is written at the bottom of my negative test result sheet/recipt or whatever it is This test is from St. Vincents Clinic in New York City They Used the "Finger stick with whole blood" Is this new information? Does that mean a test after months exposure is clear?
923497 tn?1243898324 He came to see me, forgot the results back at his home(in New York), but we had sex(protected and he NEVER ejaculated). He returned to New York and he did indeed mail me the results(IT WAS NEGATIVE!) I found out that he slept with a transsexual(this was before he came to see me and before he got tested for HIV and he said he used a condom) and also that he was still legally married. I forgave him because I feel people make mistakes and I trusted him because he didn't have to get tested.
Avatar n tn As an FYI, I got an HIV test at 8 weeks (negative) and followed it up with a second test at 9 months (also negative). I concur with the doctor on a followup test for your peace of mind. It was very helpful for me.
Avatar f tn Is there any percentages how many people would have a positive duo test at 3 weeks (18.5) days? I have rad the New York states duo test is good at 14-15 days. Has anyone else heard this.
Avatar m tn Hello again Doctors, I recently had unprotected sex with a 28 year old caucasian female in New York who was originally from California. We were both drunk and did not think to use a condom at the time. We had sex two times that night for about 15 minutes with unprotected oral sex as well. I recently got tested exactly 8 weeks and 2 days after the encounter for HIV, Syphillis and HSV. HIV and Syphillis were both negative but found out that I have antibodies to HSV2.
Avatar f tn Two days ago I received a massage from a CSW in New York City. During the massage I used my finger on her vagina and outside her anus. I never insert my finger and I did this for approximately 2 minutes. Immediately after I noticed a fairly deep paper cut on the same finger. The skin was split but not bleeding. I didn't notice any blood from her but obviously there were vaginal secretions on my finger. Can you please tell me what kind of risk this is for hiv?
Avatar n tn I'm not sure what type of HIV test you had, but essentially all generations of HIV antibody tests will be positive at 6 weeks if indeed your are HIV positive. The New York State Department of Health has a website in which there are 100 questions and answers associated with HIV/AIDS. The resonse to question 39 states "With the HIV antibody tests used in New York State, virually all people who are infected will test positive within one month of being infected.
Avatar n tn What percentage of white escort women have hiv in New Jersey/New York? Is four weeks enough time to get tested? Have you ever heard of a sitituation like this where a man got hiv, and you belive that they weren't lying?

Avatar m tn (1) HIV DNA-PCR test coupled with ELISA (antibody) test at 4 weeks (2) ELISA (antibody) test at 8 weeks (3) ELISA (antibody) test at 12-13 weeks. QUESTION: Can you tell me how much at-risk I was for HIV exposure (I know you're probably gonna say, "VERY LITTLE" or "MINIMAL")? Also, can you tell me what a negative DNA-PCR and ELISA at 4 weeks will mean, especially in my situation? If you could help me out, I'd greatly appreciate it!
Avatar n tn Just think about it - that's like trying to pick a single person out in a major city like London or New York from space!! You are more likely to win the lottery. You are HIV negative and if you are HIV negative, you cannot have given it to your wife. Her dry cough is nothing more than that - a cough, from a much more common, standard bug. Yeast infections occur in healthy people for many reasons that are much more likely than HIV (an impossibility if you are HIV negative).
