Avatar n tn I read another post from the Doc that says antibodies don't interfere with testing for antibodies for HIV. Do a search for "antibiotics HIV" or somethin like that.
Avatar n tn Hello - I am a 56 y.o male. I had oral sex with someone I met in a bar - on Feb 17th. FYI, I did not wear a condom, and received oral sex - i.e. my mouth did NOT have any contact with him, whatsoever. I had my blood tests done on July 28th, and the resluts were given to me on July 30th - CBC, HIV, Syphillis, Ganorrea, Chlamydia, and HSV-I & II. All results came out negative.

Avatar m tn Hello! Below are my testing results at 184th day after exposure. Tests Results Flags Units Ref.

Avatar f tn I had a brief sexual encounter in February of 2015. I knew the person very well and I confronted her about her status. I wasn't to worried about it cuz she's a friend. On my yearly check up I asked the doctor for HIV testing since I never had one. The results came "blood sample not active for HIV". I assume this is a negative result right? I am schedule to see the doctor again this week to show him the results. My question is do I need further testing since it happened in February.
Avatar m tn The EIA antibody lab results were negative, and so were my oraquick results (which I took two months after the whole blood EIA test), as well as my HIV-1 DNA PCR test was negative The thrush is what is freaking me out, because that is one of the symptoms of HIV as well as night sweats. Is it possible that the oraquick, lab EIA antibody test, and DNA PCR missed something like a CRF? My blood glucose is normal but my WBC is 4.3 (low normal).
Avatar n tn My only concern still that she had unprotected sex with her husband 1 week before we were together and I don't know his status. Could the burning on my body be a sign of an HIV infection even after testing negative via oral rapid test at 12 weeks? And also, her negative rapid tests (oral) at 8 and 11 weeks? Could it be another type of STD that is causing the burning sensation on my body? Again, THANK YOU for your advice.
Avatar n tn So you really didn't need HIV testing at all; you overreacted rather dramatically, don't you think? 1) Yes, a negative HIV test at 3 months is 100% reassurance. 2) Cipro is not active against syphilis; it would not have interfered with testing. 3) To my knowledge, viral hepatitis is never transmitted by oral sex. 4) Zoloft would not affect STD/HIV test results.
Avatar n tn In short, I had a DNA PCR done at 20 days, 2 Blood Drawn Elisa's (3rd Gen Through Labcorp) done at week 3 and week 13 respectively, and 14 rapid tests done out to 26 weeks / 182 Days. All the test results were negative. The reason for the excessive testing is simply because virtually every time I get comfort around my negative status, some annoying symptom shows up that brings me back to being concerned. Over the last month or so, I have had repeated canker sores that do not seem to go away.
Avatar n tn Can someone please help in the interpretation of these testing results? HIV 1/0/2 Abs - ICMA HIV 1/0/2 Abs - Index Value <1.00 HIV 1/0/2 Abs, Qual Non Reactive Hopeful via the last line that they're negative, but the first two line are a mystery. Thank you!
Avatar n tn Yes, they do have such HIV test. Check with your local HIV specialist.
Avatar m tn Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to get HIV from fingering a girl or from being fingered. I took an antibody test at 4 weeks and Im waiting for the results. Are the results 100% accurate at that time?
Avatar m tn hi, I recently met a new guy and he showed me his STD results, which were all negative. I have only been with one person and we always had protected vaginal sex, however we did not have protected oral sex. We were together for almost 2 years and he assured me he is clean. I took a test 2 days ago and I am scared to DEATH. Is this normal. they told me it will take 3 weeks for my HIV and syphilis results I am so anxious, I have been having numerous panic attacks and I'm really scared sick.
Avatar m tn pdf Page 27 An ARCHITECT HIV Ag/Ab Combo test result that is nonreactive does not exclude the possibility of exposure to or infection with HIV-1 and/or HIV-2. Nonreactive results in this assay for individuals with prior exposure to HIV-1 and/or HIV-2 may be due to antigen and antibody levels below the limit of detection of this assay. UK Testing Guidelines http://www.bhiva.org/documents/Guidelines/Testing/GlinesHIVTest08.
Avatar n tn The tests prove beyond all doubt that you did not catch HIV. Believe the results. You are home free and do not need any additional testing. And by the way, you had a low risk exposure anyway; it is very unlikely your parter has HIV; and even if she did, oral sex is zero risk for all practical purposes. And your symptoms don't sound HIV either. Please stop worrying. You don't have HIV.
Avatar n tn Would someone be able to tell me how accurate hiv results are after 5 weeks? I have had a test today but I don't get the results until early next week.
Avatar f tn Recently had been tested for HIV , called for my results and I asked the receptionist did my HIV results come back good, and she replied "mhmm" .. Very unprofessional ! anyhow, I ended up having an abnormal pap so she scheduled a follow up for the following week.. If I was HIV positive would they call me to come in immediately or schedule an appointment the following week to tell me .?!
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 m tn its very accurate and not going to change;-)but just for ur peace of mind u can get tested at 3months.
Avatar m tn can antibiotics affect syphilis , hepatitis , hiv test ? i took the tests 6 weeks after french kissing a girl for awhile. i have been on antibiotic. will that mess up the test?
