Common Questions and Answers about Hiv test saliva

hiv

Avatar n tn Saliva is my transmission worry. I read here that saliva does not transmit HIV or any other STD. Is that 100% no risk? I just can't get it out of my head that maybe somehow it does transmit. I am normally a germaphobe as it is. Again, my story is a drunken night in a strip club with a stripper lubing a handjob with her (germinfested) Saliva. Is my 6 week negative test enough to stop worrying? Thank you.
Avatar m tn Thank you for answering I meant steping on a needle accidentally Not injecting myself. And that needle was contaminated.

Avatar n tn If saliva kills HIV virus.... ...why do they use the saliva swab test??? they said saliva can still have HIV antibodies in it,,, what do you all think?
Avatar n tn The window period can be from 10 days to 3 months, depending on the person's body and on the HIV test that's used. During that time, you can test HIV-negative even though you're HIV-positive. You can still get HIV from someone who is in the window period. In fact, there is evidence that a person in the window period is more likely to pass the virus on.
Avatar n tn An oral test is not a Saliva test.
Avatar f tn Heres a question. If HIV can't survive in saliva, then how is it that when u go in for a test they swab your mouth to let u know if the virus is in you or not?
Avatar m tn Hello again. May I ask question? Today, I tested a combo in a lab. The name of the test is HIV (combi p24+igg). The doctor in the lab said that this test is just for HIV 1 not for HIV 2. I did it at 45 days after exposure. As far as I know all combos are testing both HIV1 and HIV2. Is there anything wrong or that I don't know ?
Avatar n tn I live in london. I took up a HIV saliva test (They send a package to home. I kept the cotton butt in mouth and put it in solution filled tube and sent it to lab). The lab is QUEST lab, an american based lab in London. Going by the information that only ORAquick is FDA approved saliva test, i guess this test is not FDA Approved. They claim this saliva test to have sensitivity of 95 to 97% and specificity of 90 to 95%. I tested negative with this test.
Avatar m tn Although, for a conclusive result 3 months need to be waited for a conclusive result relating to HIV transmission? How reassuring is the test i conducted? The nurse said a 6 week test was highly reliable, although 12 weeks would be best.

Avatar m tn We have science as proof.
Avatar n tn I am very worried about the risk of an HIV infection due to this? How risky is this? Are there any test that I can do without having to wait weeks or even months? Are there reliable tests that can be done a few days after a potential infection has happenend?
Avatar m tn Understand that saliva inactivate hiv virus, does it apply to saliva of hiv plus ppl? 3. My second gen antibody test at day 39, hw accurate it is? 90,95 or 99 percent? Thanks for ur time.
Avatar m tn Now I am aware that HIV cannot be transmitted through saliva and that it is contracted through sex, needle sharing, and mother to child. However, I would like to ask if there was any risk here if the saliva did contain blood and that blood hit my lips or eye. Do I need testing? Thanks again for a reply!
Avatar m tn Yesterday (06 of may 2012) I was with a prostitute (my first and last time doing such a crazy action in my life), the thing that I am so worried about it , is that , 3 hours before staying with her , I tried to clean the hairs of my penis by scissors and unfortunately I cut the skin of my skin for about 1mm, I had some bleeding on that moment, but notice that three hours later I went to that crazy place with her and I completely forget about my cut ( I don't know why sometimes I become stupid)
Avatar f tn Hello. My question is, would a saliva hiv test, (at a life insurance screen), which took saliva from under the tongue, be conclusive at 4 months after possible infection? Are these under the tongue type tests accurate? It was negative i assume, since i did get the insurance. Thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn How come the CDC says that you can't contract HIV from saliva but they test saliva for HIV? Is the virus dead when they obtain it for the test? Is it inactivated? Is it just in minute quantities? I guess my question as a whole would be if it is there to detect for a result wouldn't it be there to infect? Does anyone know hoe that actually works?
Avatar n tn hi thier, around month ago which is more than 14 weeks post exposure with CSW protected i developed thick saliva that is really bothering me. is thick saliva symptom of HIV?
Avatar m tn Plus slavia makes the virus unable to infect. Second- The oraquick rapid oral test does not test saliva it tests the oral tissue in the mouth.
Avatar m tn Just had an Ora-Quick Rapid RecombigenHIV-1 Antibody test done (9.5 week mark)and was negative. Even if this person had HIV, would the test at 9.5 weeks post exposure pick it up, or would I have to retest? Thanks.
