Hiv test through urine

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv test through urine


Avatar n tn Would a standard urine test show HIV or does it have to be a specific test. Went to the urologist today and he said everything was fine but would it show HIV?
Avatar m tn Urine is typically sterile (clean) and unless it was real bloody urine and you had an open cut on your privates the chances are still 0%. HIV is typically NOT transmitted through urine. It is found in blood, semen, breast milk. The answer is no, your not gonna get it this way.
Avatar n tn Your risk is zero. If it were possible to have a risk less than zero, it would be you. HIV absolutely cannot be transmitted through urine, it can't get in through a cut (unless it's a very fresh cut), and it can't survive in a toilet or in any other exposed place for more than a few seconds, much less than three or four hours. You cannot get HIV this way.
Avatar f tn You're being overly anxious. Urine is not infectious for HIV. Any HIV specialist would tell you the same thing.
Avatar m tn I went to CVS to get a at home hiv test (oraquick). I took the test, I let 22 minutes go by to see the results (20 is recommended time) and they came back negative. But I still have that doubt because of my sweating and now that damn canker sore came out.
Avatar m tn No test is conclusive until 12 weeks post exposure. Yes your urine can be tested for HIV antibodies. What was your risk?
Avatar m tn so the next day on june 18th i went for a HIV oral test. it came out Negative. after that i was realived. but then 2 weeks later i got a rash on my arm. i went to webmd AGAIN and found out that it can be a cause of HIV. Once again i got terrified. so i went on july 17th to get tested again with the oral test. once again it came out negative. the next day i went to my doctor to get an std check up which came out negative also.
Avatar n tn out of interest just want to know in case of hiv disease, if it shows no urine protein in urine test after a year of exposure, will the urine antibody test become negative ? is that mean hiv negative ?
Avatar n tn You only need to do the hiv test which is done through a blood test, also a herpes test which is also done through a blood test.
Avatar n tn An HIV test will noit test for Hepatitis. If it is Hepatitis C you are concerned about it is a seperate test and has a window period of 6 months. Hepatitis can be sexually transmitted but in 75% of cases it is through blood transfer e.g. needlestick injuries and needle sharing.
Avatar m tn In STD clinic they performed some test including blood test urine culture and some test involving swab to be inserted in urethra which came out as normal. But i am still waitng for urine and herpes blood test report. Doctors say initial reports are never reliable and asked me to wait for 1 month for HIV test and Herpes. I cannot wait even a single day, i have ruined my everything just for a pleasure of few seconds. Please advise me what to do as unexpected things do occur in life!

Avatar f tn But I must admit I tasted their pre-cum sometimes. I had HIV test at the time I had gonorrhea test. HIV was negative. What I'm concerned is that gonorrhea symptoms come earlier than HIV. for Example, if I had given unprotected oral sex with a male that has HIV and gonorrhea 10 days ago, the test might show positive in gonorrhea but not HIV. So I'm really scared now. Was my chance of getting HIV from oral sex at this scenario high? Please advise. Thanks again.
Avatar m tn I had unprotected oral sex 4 weeks ago. The next day I had a burning when I urinated and my throat stated to get sore. The burning got better after 3 or 4 days but I still have a slight burn after I urinate and my throat is still sore. I got tested 24 days afterwards for Chlamydia/GC [ urine test ] and blood test for Hep A,B,C, HIV, Herpes 1 & 2. All came back negative except Herpes 1 and they say I may have gotten that when I was a child.
1548905 tn?1303331009 unprotected oral sex, giving or recieving does not carry a risk for hiv infection. You can test now for an accurate hiv test, and i expect it to be negative. But for future reference discuss status BEFORE, as well as be aware of STD's.
Avatar f tn Either of those possibilities could be true -- that you have had pharyngeal (throat) gonorrhea and infected your partner, or that you were exposed to his infection and became infected. Most pharyngeal gonorrhea causes no symptoms at all -- no sore throat, nothing. As for whether you could have been infected by your monogamous partner, I have no way of knowing -- but if he had other partners up to (or during) your relationship, that certainly is possible.
Avatar n tn Sorry to be so non-specific in my answer but as Itried to indicate above, the real test for HIV is not a bunch of non-specific findings such as ALTs, urine proteins and IgE levels, it is the HIV antibody test. If you are worried get one and then believe the results you get.
Avatar n tn You require an HIV test to test for HIV.
Avatar m tn Don't worry about the silly test. If it's a urine test the medications will show up in your urine, especially the methadone. It has a very long half life. Please reconsider the way you are taking your medication and be honest with your self and the doctors. You will be much better off in the short and long run. good luck.
