Common Questions and Answers about Hiv testing after 4 weeks


Avatar n tn How acurate is testing after 4 weeks? I've had enlarged armpit lymph nodes for a month now (it start on day 4) - in past month I've had three minor fevers a night - stomach pains. And recently I've havnt gone to the washroom for 4days - finaly went but it was slight diaherea - I took a laxative the day after and I went but diareahish. My tongue tingles and breath reaks - I dont see any excessive white spots but this started about same time as my constipation. Can anxiety cause all of these?
Avatar n tn 80 % after 8 weeks: 90 % after 10 weeks : 95 % after 12 weeks: nearly 100% I think we use the SAME tests here in 'modern' europe as in america. (3 rd generation and 4 th generation) So from where YOU have your numbers and why you are so sure about "6 weeks is nearly 100%" ??? I had a risk 6 weeks ago (unprotected sex). The 4th generation test (combined antibody/antigen test) was negative after 6 weeks.
Avatar m tn Would testing after 4 weeks be conclusive to around 90%. Or would i be better getting p24 Test 16 days after be more conclusive than that. Saying this because I am going away and wont be able to get tested for a while. Also would canadian medicare cover p24 for free?

Please some help me and tell me the answer of the following questions: 1- Is shingle sign of acute or primary hiv sign? 2- What is my percentage of getting hiv?
Avatar n tn Hi Doctor I had a HIV test 4 weeks ago. The result was negative. Though the day after the blood test on my right arm which the blood was taken from on the upper part i had little blood spots which looked like inside the skin. I got extremely paranoid maybe the needle infected me with HIV. I know this sounds crazy. few weeks later I got a sore throat which has lasted a few days and i get headaches where my head feels so heavey and I cannot concentrate.
Avatar n tn To be conclusive 12 weeks. After 4 weeks 80-90% will show positive and from 6-8 weeks up to 98% will show positive. Best to be on the safe side and test at 12 depending on your exposure.
Avatar m tn 3)while massage , she insert her finger into my anus few times. If Hiv combo test after 4 weeks, 5 weeks, 6 weeks, 7 weeks, 8 weeks, 9 weeks conclusive? How about elisa test at 11 weeks or 8 weeks can be conclusive?
Avatar f tn Hi I would like to know if its possible for a hiv rapid finger prick test to show positive at 4 weeks after an exposure and a hiv combo ag+ab test to show negative (0.280) at 6 weeks?cause that what happened to me.
Avatar m tn So i decided to take another private test, this was the HIV Duo Test. I was told this test was world class, and was 99.8% accurate after 4 weeks, but goes to 99.9% accurate after 12. So i spoke to them and they said with me being at 10 weeks, that i could take the test and pretty much trust the results as definitive proof. I took the test this week, at 10 1/2 weeks post possible contact, and just now got a phone call. Negative.
Avatar m tn how long after an exposure is an Ag/Ac hiv blood test accurate? i heard something about 3-4 weeks after the possible exposure, is that true?
Avatar n tn Sir I got tested 4 weeks after having unprotected sex in Brazil. That was about 2 months ago. My results were negative on HIV1/HIV 2, Hep A and C. I was over stressed about the situation and decided to go. The test suggested to go back in 30 days from results for another test. I know the recommended time for testing is beyound that 3 months window. In 2 weeks i will have another test to prove myself that i have nothing, marking that 3 months milestone regarding my unprotected sex experience.
Avatar f tn At 4 weeks, an HIV test is about 90% accurate.
Avatar n tn how accurate in terms of percentage will be the combo test after 8 weeks that includes P24 antigen and ELISA?
Avatar n tn pdf Page 11 #4 In an adult, a positive HIV antibody test result means that the person is infected, a person with a negative or inconclusive result may be in the “window for 4 to 6 weeks but occasionally up to 3 months after HIV exposure.
Avatar m tn My antibody test at 4 weeks was non reactive and now 10 weeks have passed .Shouyld i wait for another 2 weeks or not?What can you suggest me after my exposure?
Avatar m tn I was recently tested eight weeks after last sexual contact and results for all the major STDs came back negative. My question is that I'm wondering if this was a long enough duration for a reliable result? Thanks.
Avatar n tn also, aside from any anxiety I may feel about anything, is NAT and anti-body testing pretty accurate at detecting HIV after 4 weeks? thanks for the advice!!!
Avatar m tn Nothing is concluisve until 3 months with an antibody test. A DUO test at 4 weeks is a very good test, but not conclusive.
Avatar n tn i had a 4 week rapid hiv test from exposure i know i need more testing to be 100% sure i am not infected, but what is the probabilty of being infected having a neg result at 4 weeks?
Avatar m tn Just to be on the safe side I got tested for HIV after a PROTECTED sexual encounter with another male because he touched the condom on his pebis when he first put it on a realized it was the wrong way and switched it around. 4 weeks after I got tested and negative 2 months after I got tested and they said if I revivers a call to come in than something came back abnormal. And I haven't received a call or letter so I'm assuming the results were negative.
Avatar m tn I did a HIV, sphyillis and Hepatitis A,B,C testing after 24 days of exposure, do I neet redo all these tests?
Avatar f tn Hi I had an HIV blood test done in planned parenthood after my first exposure which was 16 weeks after (maybe more) and also it was exactly 6 weeks after the last exposure with the same guy. The test result was negative I know that the window period is 3 months (12 weeks) but since it was just 6 weeks after the last exposure should I get anotherone done?
Avatar f tn I was told that hiv can lie dormant for 5 to 10 years without showing up on a test. My most recent unprotected intercourse was 4 weeks ago. 6 days after that encounter I got the flu. I went to the doctor and she did a flu test and said she wasn't sure if it was positive or not. I am very concerned. Can hiv lie dormant for years without a person knowing? When do I need to test? Do flu symptoms happen that soon after exposure? I had body aches, fever of 99.5, cough, fatigue.
Avatar n tn Hello Doctor, I'm 37 yrs old, I had two relatively protected exposures in 13july with two sex workers, first time it was oral with condom & then vaginal sex with same condom, I believe the condom was not broken. Then second with again oral with condom, this time I changed 3 condoms before going for vaginal with 4th condom on which also she performed oral for some time, I checked after the sex the condom was not broken.
