Avatar m tn I went to chelsea july 30th and they a blood oraquick vih1 and hiv 2. So, not all facilities do hiv test blood, my last 3 test in th past 2 months have been oraquick saliva, event tough i read the article about false positive/negative with oraquick saliva version. There is so much lack of information about the window period that's incredible. At chelsea they told me 3 months. My first test was on Bergen St. in feb.
Avatar m tn I've gone to the doctor (I live in new york city) and had both a Rapid Test and an HIV 1/2 EIA Ab Screen. Both of which were negative. I have a few questions: 1) How can I tell if my EIA test was the 3rd or 4th generation? 2) What is the confidence of a negative result 5 weeks after exposure for either 3rd or 4th generation tests? Thank you very much. PS. I promise I'll never be so stupid to put myself in this situation again.
Avatar n tn in another artice on accuracy between tests it had a scary number of 126 people testing positive w the focus test but when using conformation test only 26 were positive tha is disturbing to me.
Avatar m tn I have a test result to report. I just took a rapid HIV test at a public health clinic here in NYC. The result was negative. It has been about four weeks since the incident. Given what you know about the incident and the test, what is the upshot of this result? Should I still be worried?
Avatar f tn They have proclaimed to me that they test and are disease free. My biggest fear is HIV. I have been engaging in protected sex with my wife, but on one or two occasions I had unprotected sex with my wife. Lately, after thinking about it, I started to become paranoid and haven't slept for two nights. I didn't not experience any breakage I condone with these women. And they sometimes appeared to be more paranoid than I was.
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 n tn I did try and do a lot of research and found a test that can detect hiv antibodies in as little as 2 week and 28 days the results should be accurate. The only thing that is driving me crazy is that the test can possibly give a false positive result. the test would also cost me 500 for two. I found it on this site advance testing.com. No one knows anything about the site. And no one seems to be helping me with this.
Avatar m tn I know of no expert who has seen a person develop positive antibody tests in more than 8 weeks unless that person was taking medications to try to prevent HIV (i.e. medications for HIV treatment). The PCR test becomes positive well before the antibody test. thus, as AI said before the combination of the two tests serves to prove that you did not get HIV, if you had sex at the time you describe. 2. No, your tests rule out more long standing infection.
Avatar m tn Ora gold rapid blood test was performed in 1 of the top free clinics in NYC, so I imagine quality is high. On the paper, it said Test for HIV 1 & 2 antibodies. Clinician testing said there had been false negatives before (but where these likely after 1 month or less of exposure w/ ARS symptoms, and not after 2 months, 1 month after start of symptoms?
Avatar m tn Hiv is transmitted by unprotected anal/vaginal penetrative sex. Oral sex is zero risk as far as hiv is concerned. You do not have a hiv concern. Use condoms and stay safe always.
Avatar m tn hard to believe noone else in NYC offers it, i can't even just buy it and test myself. unless someone knows where else i can go, i'll suppose i will just have to wait until next week now.
Avatar m tn Not all that surprising since they developed ability to test for HIV separate from HCV a few years ago. Seems to be they then realized that many with HIV were already co-infected with HCV and that many of the deaths which have been reported might actually have been a result of the HCV, especially those which were not easily attributed to other causes of death.
Avatar m tn Lancets are not designed to be re-used.Hiv transmission via lancets is not possible.You had no risk.
Avatar m tn Hi P24 Test, First of all I wish you negative Hiv tests. Best time interval for Stand Alone P24 test is in between 14th and 27th days. I would recommend that what my doctor has recommended to me. Take a 21st day Hiv DUO Test (Which checks both for Antibodies and Antigens simultaneously and hence grater accuracy than 3rd gen Antibody only tests at aerly stages of HIV infection). If it is negative you are most probably not infected.
Avatar f tn 7 (81 days since my potential exposure, just three days shy of 12 weeks) was a rapid test drawn via fingerprick at Planned Parenthood in NYC. That test was NEGATIVE. I was also tested at 3 weeks (rapid test drawn via blood), 6 weeks (lab-based antibody test), and 8 weeks (lab-based antibody test at my GP). All were negative. I've recently been informed that for as near as 100% certainty, I should have waited until 13 weeks (91 days). I've read a few threads about 3 months vs.
Avatar n tn Although such false results are uncommon, probably you will now agree it would have been best if that test had not been done. In any case, that test clearly was false; the subsequent test in Hong Kong prove you do not have HIV. In other words, your HK doctor is exactly right. You do not need any further HIV tests. Please don't have another one unless and until you have other exposures that put you at risk (which certainly will not include any oral sex events).
Avatar n tn Just now I went to the hospital where I had my last HIV test (1 and 2 a/b combo with P24) and requested a hard copy of the negative test result. It made me feel better to see it in writing, to know that it's real, however irrational this is. Logically I know there was no risk, and so I am negative and do not need to test. but somehow my mind keeps racing. So at the hospital, I also asked to see a doctor and requested referral for mental health help.
Avatar m tn Lastly, there were two small blood spots on the sheet that I assume came from her during the vaginal sex. I have scheduled a HIV-1 DNA by PCR With HIV Antibodies by ICMA test, but have to wait 21 days. How scared should I be? I am married an in addition to feeling incredibly awful about the one time act, the thought of bringing something like this into our home makes me physically ill.
Avatar m tn Hello Docs, I visit massage parlors regularly and they provide hand jobs and sometime nipple kissing. I do not get full service or touch their private area. Last time I visited a sex worker on Aug 4th. We didn't have penetrational sex. We touched each other. She slicked my ear and I kissed her back. We didn't touch each other's genital area. She used a vibrator on herself and I released on the floor.

Avatar n tn I under stand this was very dumb on my part, I am just looking for some answers and statistics. I have gotten a rapid hiv test 22 days after exposure and this is the only risk I am worried about and the test came back negative, the docotor told me that after 25 days the test are almost always 100% not going to change, he said he never saw someone return for a 2 or 3 month test and have the results change.

You do not have HIV from this innocent little incident.
Avatar m tn Dear Doctor, I'm going to have an HIV test tomorrow at a clinic belongs to NYC HHC. I have a question? Is there possibility that I got infected if the doctor there had mis-operated something? For example, if the doctor use a used needle to get my blood sample or use an unsterilized item on my wound, or something like that? I'm really anxious about my health. Ok, I know I'm over anxious. But I really don't want to worry the HIV issues any more.. I want to have an ordinary and normal life!
Avatar f tn The result was negative, but I am very afraid that the rapid test I took at the public health STD clinic in NYC was reused. I say this because first all the rapid finger pricking devices were in a wicker basket (probably about 20 or more) none were wrapped in plastic and I did not see the lady replace any needles or equipment on the devices. Are these devices used and cleaned? I am very afraid doctor and I would really love to believe that this is all in my head.
Avatar n tn I can't say what proportion of escorts in the NYC/NJ area have HIV, but it's under 1%, probably closer to 1 in 1,000. And when a woman has HIV, the risk to her male partner from a single episode of unprotected vaginal sex averages around once for ever 2,000 exposures. That means your risk of HIV from this event is in the ragne of 1 in 200,000 to 1 in two million. And with odds like that, of course I have never seen someone in your situation who caught HIV.
Avatar f tn The last time I was tested, it was at a free clinic in NYC. They gave me a rapid blood test on the spot, and then they also took a blood sample for a test which would take a couple of weeks. The rapid test came back negative, and then the longer test had the results posted to a password website -- the posted results read "all tests came back normal, which means there were no signs of infection". Now, any normal person would take this to be great news.
Avatar m tn Specimen reactivity relative to the negative cutoff. HIV 1/O/2 Abs, Qual Non Reactive . And Rapid test with blood = non reactive Will that confirm that person do not have HIV?
Avatar n tn I would suggest to wear condom next time unless your're really sure she's not HIV positive. I would you also suggest an HIV test 3 months after your unprotected sex and I'm confident you will be negative. It will be better for you and your GF to know your status than not knowing it. I hope this helps stay safe...
