Avatar m tn Therefore, I went to the city's sexual health clinic in Ottawa where it is believed to be the best for STD/HIV test or consultation in the city. I had rapid HIV test and it was "negative". That was yesterday, 31st of Aug. Although, the public nurse said that HIV test has to be done after 3 months of "Window period". I have read couple posts here and many doctors already have said that it can be detected after 3-4 weeks. So yes, since 19th of July it has been a month.
Avatar m tn Just wondering about the DUO test. Not sure where to get it done here in Ottawa, Canada. Just wondering if anyone might know where I could get the DUO test done? I know 12-13 weeks is conclusive but I am hoping to get a test done at just over 4 weeks. I am still going to do the 12-13 week test for sure but the anxiety and waiting is really affecting me. Thank you.
Avatar m tn I know the doctor at the hospital I went to said it's a personal choice, that the doctor she spoke with said the risk of getting hiv through needle exposure to someone that had it is 1/200 , and they assume the same is through anal intercourse. The same with PEP that it's not fully tested on intercourse, but they assume it's the same as those that take it after a needle exposure.
Avatar m tn what does her having a light period have to do with hiv infection? NOTHING you can test in another month for a conclusive result.
Avatar n tn It sucks that looking back now, I realize I could have been more careful, at least having requested my bf to get tested before it all happened. rapid hiv test - should I get one? I live in Ottawa, I hardly think it would be worthwhile to go to the hospital to get a rapid test since I got my blood drawn 3 days ago... I think I'll just wait. I'm scared though... they said that if they call to ask me to come in for my results, not to worry because it doesn't necessarily mean i'm HIV +....
Avatar m tn Hi all. Just wondering if the POC rapid test is considered a standard hiv antibody test? I have read Dr. HHH say 90-95% of people who are positive will show at 4 weeks with a standard antibody test with no other issues (chemo. treatment, immune issues, etc...). Is the POC considered that type of test? Thank you so much.
Avatar m tn You don't need to test, and you are not in risk category at all.
Avatar f tn I believe it was the Multispot HIV-1/HIV-2 Rapid Test. I looked it up when I got home and this sounded like the test I received. Also, this test is said to be the quickest with results as soon as testing is done. I also called the aids hotline twice cause I was so worried why the results were so quick and they said, it doesn't take 20 minutes to show up all the time if it was negative it was negative if there was no blue dot they would have done it again as it would have been indeterminable.
Avatar m tn Their lab uses the “Herpe Select” Immunoblot test for HSV. It does both Igm/IgG testing if required. This test is NOT covered by Public Health Plan - Cost is 140$ Lab is based in Montreal. The turn around time is 1-2 weeks. The test by Immunoblot HSV1 is 92%-100% accurate. The test by Immunoblot HSV2 is 98%-100% accurate. Public Health (in Ontario at least) does IgG HSV ELISA/EIA testing.
Avatar m tn Hi all. I was just wondering if anyone may know roughly the rate of HIV infected trasexual sex workers in Canada? Not looking for an exact amount or anything but maybe a 'high' or 'low' type answer (and if more specific available that would be great also. I am looking at Ontario, specifically Ottawa.
Avatar n tn most with hiv have no symptoms most here are dealing with hiv anxiety and ocd plus stress issues
Avatar n tn So, I think that you're hiv negative, but after some encounters it's important take hiv test. You've had many encounter, so I think that it's arrived the time to take a test. I agree with joey, expect negative result, but get test tomorrow, ok? bye.
Avatar m tn A p24 Antigen test was done, as well as HIV antibody test -both were negative. Are these resultus 100% conclusive, or do I need further testing to be 100% sure? Lastly, I sincerely want to thank you for your response. Reading your response allowed me to relax a little bit, but of course, the negative results were exactly what I needed to put my fears to rest. Thanks again and best wishes!
Avatar n tn 1.Do I need further HIV test or Jan28 test is conclusive? 2.Is it possible to transmit to my WIFE since in JAN I had twice protected vaginal sex with my wife. 3.Is it possible to transmit to my SON since my wife often kiss my son' eyes ,face and nose. Thank you very much.
Avatar m tn Had a severe case of diahrrea, which only was one morning. I had an HIV antibody test done at 50 days post exposure on April 3rd, as well as STD's. All came back negative. I initially was overjoyed at this news and believed that my symptoms would go away but they haven't. my symptoms have been now - digestive issues. Severe cramps or abdominal pains, especially after a meal which is usually followed by body chills or hot head or hot flashes.
Avatar m tn hbsag quantity, polimerase mutation test, and hbv precore test as well as nagalase test ( i gave them redlabs web address ) and also about gcmaf. They said they will check it and get back to me. I'll let you all know the progress. HepTec and Vit D already help me a lot with my asthma. Hopefully in my fibroscan result too.....
Avatar m tn professor ruggiero is just making a trial with a probiotic able to produce gcmaf which is more potent than the compound made by biolabs and will present data at ottawa and padova hiv int'l conferences gcmaf is present in everybodies blood except people with cronic diseases.absence of gcmaf from blood makes immune system blind by making macrophages inactivated and not capable to detect pathogens and immune escape strategy used by cancer cells, viruses and bacteria.
Avatar m tn he still wanted me to get tested for HIV and STD's. I asked him how worthy an HIV test would be after 7 1/2 day exposure when from what i was able to gather, i should at least wait 30 days, if not 3 months for definitive result. He explained to me that since i was experiencing possible ARS symptoms at day 5, that a test at day 7 1/2, although not conclusive, would be able to detect antibodies. And since he believed i had nothing to worry about, it was more to ease my conscience.
Avatar m tn //www.iacfsme.org/) Prof. Ruggiero 27 e 29 sept a Padova http://www.siai2011.azuleon.org/ due to the extraordinary results professor ruggiero and the other scientists involved agreed to explain people on how to do maf314 in our home kitchens we know that first weeks of maf 314 made a rise of cd4,cd8 and nk cells in aids and healthy subjects...
Avatar n tn 1: Should I ask for another EEG to be done or some other test for the seizures? 2: Should I have had or should I request any further testing of some sort? Are you saying that even though I have not done/used drugs/alcohol in many years that this could be the culprit, is there some testing needing to be done regarding that? Can you possibly recommend a Dr in the Northern Canada area, ie: Terrace, Smithers, Prince Rupert, Etc. Thank you again for your help.

Avatar f tn However when I was talking with a woman from the local HIV/AIDS association, she said she figured people with HIV who also have Hep C don't come to our meetings because most of them will have been or are drug users and they do fear being outed for that, even if our group is based on a principle of "we don't care how you got it, we're all in the same boat". Okay...after all that preamble....my question is .. .do you attend your local Hep C Support group? If not, why not?
Avatar n tn yes that would be the best option, CFS researcher made the same thing since many governments are trying to hide XMRV virus which is actually more spread than hiv and a real cause of aids. by the way is rep9ac compound public, if there is apatent it should be?if so any advanced biolab can make it like it happened for gcmaf, especially where there is no patent coverage.
1294995 tn?1330666336 I am super nervous about 1) the pain and 2) that the test will not go favorably for me. So, I wanted to ask you ladies that have had the test done how painful was it on a 1-10 scale? Also, what EXACTLY do they do, what does the pain feel like, how long does the test take, and how long does it take to get results back? Mango - Congrats on your O and I would still do this cycle if it were me.
Avatar n tn I had the nerve test and EMG test yesterday....all were fine. Thank heavens! Both neurologists said that I didn`t have GBS, Polyneuropathy, MS or any other neurological disease. However, what has happened is strange and they said it`s often misunderstood and mis-diagnosed. They said that likely the flu vaccines threw my system out of equilibrium which threw my respiratory ``gauge`` in the brain out of sync and now I am breathing more rapidly and not as deeply as normal.
