Avatar m tn you are thinking of HIV timeline. HBV surface antigen usually goes up in several days. If you don't have it and you have had STD panels done and you have no symptoms you are OK. But only tests tell the truth here friend.. If you don't have HBV, my advice would be vaccinate against this monster and at least not ever worry about it. ALL active young adults that are not vaccinated yet against HBV please do yourself a favor and take a vaccine - protect your life.
Avatar n tn Just one follow up question- do the symptoms and timeline sound like they could be HIV? Obviously one always jumps to the worst case scenario..
Avatar f tn Man i sure hope your right because anytime now that i try to be happy a little thing goes off inside my head and says "you know you may have hiv and are gonna die"...then my day is shot and im back depressed! ..

Avatar m tn 4th geneation HIV assays check for HIV antibdies and HIV P24 antigen, but not viral DNA, as viral DNA is checked by PCR test.
Avatar m tn Does anyone have legit info. or websites that deal with the timeline of the HIV/AIDS onset to diagnosis? I have seen that www.aidsmeds.com seems a legit source. They state that 3 weeks (or 21 days) is the "average" time for seroconversion. Are there other websites that would refute this? Understanding that not all persons infected with HIV would undergo ARS, if those that do, do indeed go through ARS and have symptoms, what is that timeline?
Avatar f tn I am a female who has had unprotected vaginal/ oral sex over a two week period with a male whose HIV status is unknown to me. About 3 weeks after our first sexual encounter I become sick with a running nose, productive cough, swollen neck glands, and general weakness that lasted about 4 days. At 8 weeks after the first encounter, 5 weeks after the last encounter I received a HIV test which was negative from my general practioner.
Avatar m tn Hi i know HIV can't be diagnosed using symptoms though I am curious concerning the ars timeline. Some sites say 2-6 weeks others 2-4. Is it rare to get the ars 5-6 weeks or are they just covering every base? I red it's even rare at 4 weeks as it generally starts 14-21 days. What's the truth and is there links where I can get the proper truth on HIV?
Avatar n tn Doctor suggested to wait a week and if it does not improve we will do another blood report and hiv test. Hiv test did not sink in properly until a couple of days. I had not even thought in this direction and doctor had not even done any risk assessment. I started reading about it. And yes to my surprise almost all the symptoms of ARS matched except fever.
Avatar m tn They also said the vaccines being currently worked on will take two shots, and likely not be more effective than the flu vaccine, so they cautioned that we are likely to be wearing masks and distancing for a long time to come even after a vaccine comes out. The best year the flu vaccine had was between 40 and 60% effective, and is usually not that good.
Avatar n tn Welcome to the HIV forum. Before I get to your specific questions, here are the uniform responses in virtually all such questions: 1) Most CSWs don't have HIV, usually less than 1 chance in 1000. 2) Most people don't lie about HIV status, so the chance your partner had HIV is even lower. 3) If a partner has HIV, the risk of HIV transmission by oral sex, i.e.
Avatar m tn unprotected sex is a risk for hiv.. Go get tested... Your result will be conclusive now...
Avatar m tn s my understanding that this vaccine is for women only and would (theoretically) prevent the hsv-2 virus from taking root if they were exposed. would this destroy the hsv-2 virus in women that already have it? or just prevent uninfected women from getting it? either way, i hope the trials go well. if they can come up with a vaccine for women, i'm sure one for men isn't too far beyond the horizon as well.

Avatar m tn Personally there is a Vaccine currently in Phase 1 Trails that was recently Approved by the FDA which in a sense is a major step for any Vaccine. This Vaccine uses a Whole HIV Virus instead of little bits of it. There is also a Heavy Duty Vaccine (Genes) in the pipeline as well. We also need to Focus Prevention Methods on the hardest hit the Gay community. We need to have a Aggressive safe sex promotion and Widespread HIV TESTING.
Avatar n tn or some amount of it left in my body, and an adenovirus vaccine-induced enhancement of target cells for HIV can cause an infection (kind of delayed seroconversion)? The studies on the HIV vaccine considered 6 months old exposures as high-risk (prior to the administration of the vaccine), if I remember correctly, but I dont know if that was used for behavioural purposes. It isnt clear in the cited studies. 2.
Avatar n tn I would like to ask whether Hepatitis B vaccine impact the window period of HIV testing? Is this negative result is finally conclusive?
Avatar f tn if someone inadvertently injects a quantity of HIV blood into the vaccine bottle can it infect or the vaccine component will inactivate hiv ? If syringes or needles have been used before in a person with HIV what is the possibility of infection.
Avatar m tn it is not enough to test that only you have to test hbsag, hbsab and hbcab igg and igm to have a picture no difference and you ll clear hbv anyway even if no vaccine, anyway you are fully on time and if you dont mind to spend the money for the vaccine you dont need to wait for any test if you want to save money check the tests above and if any positive you had hbv already and cleared, hbv has no symptoms
Avatar n tn Vaccine Campaigns May Be The Cause of New AIDS-Like Disease in Asia and Drug Resistant HIV Affecting Africa Researchers have identified mysterious new symptoms that have left scores of people in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa with an AIDS-like disease and drug-resistant HIV respectively. Coincidentally, vaccine trials took place in several regions in both continents. The patients' immune systems become damaged, leaving them unable to fend off germs as healthy people do.
Avatar m tn no vaccine for hiv. Go to ART centre immediately without wasting time and take prophylactic dose for 28 days continuosly to minimise risk to acquire hiv. Vaccine for hbv doesnt works if u are already exposed to it.
Avatar m tn I went to hospital to have a vaccine yestoday. but when the nurse took out the vaccine from the fridge beside the Injection station, the vaccine fell off from her hand du to her negligence and roll around the bucket full of syringes and needles used before. She took up the vaccine from the ground and gave me a vaccine. There was no obvious blood on the ground near the bucket.
Avatar m tn My English is not very good, Hello Doctor, after an unprotected sexual intercourse, I took HIV blockers for 7 days, and my girlfriend had unprotected sexual intercourse for about 3 minutes without shooting. Is it possible for me to infect her? The HIV test before I took the medicine turned out to be negative.
