Avatar m tn Yes according to most national guidelines, I know. However not in France where the labs, docs and the Aids Organisation gives you a conclusive result after 6 weeks. They told me I was negative and don't need do further testings, unless I had another unsafe event since. The french have discovered the virus, so they seem to have good science on HIV/Aids there.
Avatar m tn As of November 2009, 23,731 HIV/AIDS cases have been reported in the country (National HIV/AIDS Program of the Ministry of Health). The Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) estimates that in 2007, 35,000 Salvadorans were living with HIV (UNAIDS 2008 Report on the Global AIDS Epidemic). Incidence appears to have declined since 2004, but there is a fear that HIV/AIDS cases are underreported due to lack of an effective monitoring system.
Avatar n tn The test would have been reliable and conclusive 90 days or longer after your encounter. You do not have HIV - look for another reason for your symptoms.
Avatar f tn The guidelines we go by at MedHelp are the recommendations of some of the worlds most well known and respected HIV/AIDS experts. We recommend the 4th generation DUO test 28 days post exposure and a confirmatory test at 12 weeks for a 100% conclusive result. Your doctor goes by different guidelines. Perhaps you should ask him why he thinks so many experts are wrong.
Avatar m tn Also, you should have seen that symptoms NEVER help in predicting whether or not someone has HIV, since the symptoms of a new HIV infection are identicical to those of other, far more common day-to-day infections. Testing tells whether or not someone has HIV; symptoms do not. The other standard response is that oral sex is an extremely rare source of HIV transmission, because saliva inactivates the virus.
Avatar m tn HIV can be transmitted due to sharing needles, this is because the blood interact. Unfortunately, there is no cure for HIV (note that HIV isn't the same as AIDS) but treatment for this virus is really advanced. There are medications that permit people live a completely normal life with HIV without developing AIDS. I hope everything is ok, post your results. Personally, I think you didn't involve in high risk. This virus is very fragile and die easily at normal temperature.

Avatar m tn My counsellor who works in a govt. hospital, under national aids, who advised me for 6 months test, there may be some reason behind it.????
Avatar m tn It is said by some experts that CMV, EBV and HPV and some STDS can change HIV testing results because standard HIV tests only detects antibodies (e.g ELISA). Also other diseases such as LUPUS can change these results. U have no concerns though, Take care!
Avatar n tn // some VA clinic exposed people to HIV by reusing dental instruments. So for you to dismiss that these things can happen is wrong. Someone who believes you goes home has sex with his wife, she breast feeds the baby now everyone is infected. If you can’t stand peoples questions then do not reply with condescending comments.
Avatar f tn Dear Doctor, I have a few questions for you involving two separate encounters, subsequent testing and information I have been given by an employee at a testing center. Firstly, in January of 2009 I had what I remember to be an unprotected sexual encounter with a heterosexual American male in the Army. Our condom broke. He claimed to be clear of all STDs. In January of 2010 I had 2 separate sexual encounters with a heterosexual American male in Medical School who I had dated briefly.
Avatar m tn So somehow the documenteries on the DEC1 (aids day) which i saw caused the anxiety again and started relating everything to hiv. and that was the reason i was posting all these questions :) I have seen these tiny multiple pinhead bumps on the upper lips 2-3 months back itself and never has related this to hiv till Dec1. i think my mind and thoughts are over riding me. Anyway Thanks a lot for the info and help and relief...
163305 tn?1333668571 Awesome, but does this mean she will now be hiv positive I wonder? I guess if faced with immenent death or hiv, I would opt for hiv.
Avatar m tn How long does it take for hiv to turn into aids? does an hiv infected person always feel sick?
