Common Questions and Answers about Hiv testing training


Avatar f tn Dear please tell me .i have no risk can i nead ruther testing please help me.
Avatar f tn I was under the assumption that it was done by someone that had training to read, administer, and council the testing! Did I make a bad choice by testing there??? Now I'm nervous!! Anyone have experiences they can share?
Avatar f tn My dr wants me to keep testing for hiv. I have lost my job to the anxiety and being sick. Any light that could be shedded on to me I would appreciate. Today I did a rapid test at 7.5 and it was negative. I'm so depressed from this. Please help.
Avatar f tn Your test was a waste of time -which is a good thing, You can't get HIV using a condom, so you should have moved on back then.
Avatar f tn Anyway a fourth Gen Hiv test,is a test for both Hiv antibody and antigen and because of this most expert agreed it only has a 4 week window period for this test. And a non reactive 4th gen hiv test means neither P24 antigen and hiv antibody are not present. Your 7 week 4th gen test is already conclusive and if decided to test at the 12 week mark i am sure it will be still the same result.
Avatar f tn You did not have a risk in the first place for HIV. Not in any way. Protected vaginal and oral sex are safe sex. HIV is transmitted ONLY through unprotected vaginal or anal sex or sharing of IV drug needles. So, your symptoms are not classic ars and not related to HIV at all. You tested negative on top of this (as you would with not ever having had a risk). You need to move on from HIV for a cause of anything going on in your life.
Avatar m tn We know approximately how long it may take a person to produce antibodies to HIV based on years of data, research and advancements in testing. A person who has contracted HIV may show up positive as early as two weeks after the time they were infected. According to page 11 of the Module 6 Training Manual from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the vast majority of those who contract HIV will show up positive between 4—6 weeks after infection.
Avatar m tn In brief, I am studying medicine and I am worried sick if I have acquired herpes even though I do not have any symptoms, but the college will perform tests for all the students and they may find out I have herpes and cancel my study visa... please help me is it only hiv and hepatits who are prevented to study or anyone who has any STDs?
Avatar f tn You have no medical training, so the first thing to do is stop playing Google doctor and relax knowing that you do not have HIV. You will never relax if you can't accept the 40 year old science and instead insist on inventing your own where the possibility of hidden HIV disease lurks in the back of your mind. If you relax and still think you are sick then see doc, but don't waste time taking any more tests or playing Google doctor since your diagnosis so far is so far off the mark.
Avatar m tn A headache, alone, is not a symptom of HIV. You would have a lot more symptoms. Also, your test is conclusive so you do NOT have HIV.
Avatar m tn So i was tested today, with a rapid blood test that gave me the results in about 45 minutes.everything came out negative (yay), but then the lady that worked at the clinic told me that i should come back for a test at 6 months, because "hiv occurs betwen 3 and 6 months" this had me a little concerned. should i get tested again at 6 months? why does a person working at a clinic have this idea that you need to?
Avatar m tn You did not even have a medical reason to test. You can stop testing, you will not get HIV from receiving a oral sex.
Avatar m tn m very afraid thinking of possible HIV infection. At 27 days I did HIV RNA test and it came negative. On the 29th day, I did HIV 4th gen test along with all STD test where everything came negative. However, I have red rashes over chest and acne on forehead.
Avatar n tn This answers all of your HIV questions, and if you can think of any more just reread about the 3. You had zero risk therefore testing is irrelevant to your situation because you had zero risk. HIV is a fragile virus, which is instantly inactivated in air and also in saliva which means it is effectively dead so it can't infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities.
Avatar m tn cdc is still having the old regulations and the current tests are very sensitve!.. so 3 month testing is definitely CONCLUSIVE!!.. the doctors in this forum goes with 8 week being conclusive so 3 months is most definite!.. i know the anxiety and the fear.. trust me even ive been **** scared when i was waiting for 12 week testing.. ur result is proof that you are negative.. now just need to move on!
Avatar m tn your herpes testing was all done too early as was your hiv testing. this was a protected encounter so no reason for repeat hiv testing. the risk of herpes from a one time protected encounter is also too low to bother with repeat testing for.
Avatar m tn gastrointestinal problems (my doctor asked me to make a stool analysis and it shown an infection with giardia), i took a ten days treatment with metronidazole, according to a new analysis the parasite has gone, but many symptoms have stayed. Since two weeks ago i noticed that my tongue was turning white, and i'm sure i have a fungal infection. Also i've been suffering many eruptions in my mouth.
Avatar f tn im bottom and we had protected anal sex. my concern is that do i need to go test for hiv and is there any risk for hiv?

Accessions to the U.S. Naval Academy, Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps, and the Uniformed University of the Health Sciences shall be tested for HIV within 72 hours of arrival to the programs and be denied entry if positive.
