  1. Lancent

    Hello,

    Nov 1st 2016 i met my Room mate in UK , We know each other since 2013 over the internet ,

    But in Nov 2016 we met and had a shower together and my penis touched her ass checks from outside under the water but never
    Sticked it inside but she gave me handjob while showering and we slept without any sex or intercourse at all but in the morning she gave me a second Handjob while i fingered her and I checked my finger and there was no cuts at all , then we left the room after an hour and we kised each other in the lobby for leaving soft kiss and that was all .

    I did only one test ( HIV Combo Ag Abs ) test after 23 weeks and result was Non REACTIVE .

    Never got fever or rash or flu please advise?

    Should i move on.

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      The risk of HIV transmission in your scenario is virtually zero. Your HIV test result is conclusive. Move on with your life.

  2. Hi Dr,

    A few months ago, I got tested and it came out negative. However, the guy in front of me had a positive. In the unlikely scenario, due to a human error, they used the same lancet on me as they did him, what are the odds that I get infected? I am considering doing another test as I’ve had stiff muscles since 2-3 weeks after the incident.

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      All lancets used are single-use items. They cannot be re-used as they will not work. Thus there is no risk you can be transmitted due to re-suing of lancet as it is not possible.

  3. Doctor you have seen any 6th week negative and after week positive

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      If you are still concerned, you can consider testing with 4th generation HIV test 3 months post-exposure.

      • Even if we retest after 3 minths or 4 and was negative your answer would be , if you still concerned please visit your doctor ,

        • Dr. Julian Ng

          Hi,

          If you tested with a 4th Generation HIV test 3 months post-exposure and it is negative then move on with your life.

  4. hi dr julian,

    i just had my hiv 1 and 2 ag/ab test done= nonreactive at 28 days from the post exposure (13 march) protected sex. i also tested with the girl on 27days from the post exposure also negative and plus with my hiv 1 rna pcr rt test also undetected. is my result conclusive? any retest require? thank you dr julian.

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      I would consider your HIV tests as conclusive. However, if you are still concern you may want to consider retesting after 3 months post-exposure.

      • dr thank for your reply. but the retest is necessary? or just a do it if concern?

  5. Dr. I had protected sex with a girl ( single mother with two kids) she was claim that she nvr had sexual contact with other male since she left her husband for 1 years ago. We went to 4th gen test after expose both negative. Then
    1. I went to hiv 1 rna real time pcr at 10th days (13 march expose to 23 march). The result was undetected.
    2. Can i get myself a combo test at 28days? And is 27days is good as 28days?
    3. For window period, is the day of expose consider as 1 day?
    Thks dr

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      The recommendation is to do the 4th generation HIV test after 28 days post-exposure.

      • Dr i would like to know is the pcr rna test that i done is accurate or not accurate at all? As i read through your post on pcr rna test it stated that conclusive after 10days.

        • And read through some of the case dr justin and dr tan also stated that it is conclusive at 10 days? Can i get video assessment from video cam?

        • Dr. Julian Ng

          HI,

          CDC/WHO do not recommend using HIV RNA PCR as a screen for HIV. Thus, the recommendation is still to do 4th Generation HIV test after 28 days.

      • Dr i was done at 4th gen test with my gf after the exposure 1 months but i notice that still got 1 days will be execatly be 28days. May i knw the differences between 27fays and 28days?

        • Dr. Julian Ng

          Hi,

          The test is recommended to be done 28 days after exposure, it would be difficult to say for certain if it would be conclusive. My suggestion is to repeat the test (you may want to consider doing after 3 months).

  6. Hi,

    Are the lancets used for the hiv test a one time lancet or can it be reused?

  7. desmond

    Hi doctors,

    I recently had unprotected sex with a ktv girl and post 20+ days i’m getting symptoms like small bumps on my penile and burning sensation every time i visit the bathroom(bearable ones) and heavy discharge of transparent substances but i have no other symptoms like fever etc. what’s my next best course of action?

  8. Had sex with csw last year jan 16 3 month later gen 4 tested negative. 6 month gen 3 negative 8 month gen 3 negative. Feet recently grow something like plantar warts. Can you get plantar warts if you are hiv negative ?

    • Yes, of course you can get plantar warts if you are HIV negative. I would consider your testing conclusive.

  9. Hello Dr.
    I did a HIV test,blood was drawn from vein in a private laboratory,but didn’t ask the kind of test that was used, if I may ask what kind of test do laboratory normally used and what is d window period? pls I need ur answer

  10. hi, doc
    I did a HIV test,blood was drawn from vein in a private laboratory,but didn’t ask the kind of test that was used, if I may ask what kind of test do laboratory normally used and what is d window period? pls I need ur answer am from Nigeria

  11. Dear Dr, I am wondering if I can do an anonymous 4th generation lab test at your clinic? Is it more conclusive than a rapid test? Thank you!

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      Only the Robertson branch of our clinic can perform anonymous 4th Generation HIV rapid test. The performance of HIV 4th generation lab test is similar to that of the 4th Generation HIV rapid test.

  12. Hi dr. I had a unprotected exposure to possible hiv on january 15th and i started getting all the symptoms by 2 weeks. I tested negative at 14 days via duo and negative at 28 days with a 4 generation test but yet i still have facial flushing & rash plus my doc just told me my cortisol was high and i have rosacea all of a sudden. I tested with oraquick oral yesterday at 8 weeks post and again negative. Do you feel im ok?

  13. Assignment Fear

    Hello Sir
    36 old male, i am married & it was an accidental case 6 months ago when i went to a private massage and accidentally the lady touched my penis & i found myself been turned on and she said i can give you happy ending just to release and calm after , she gave me the handjob Action and she was standing and i was laying on my back and i started to finger her vaginal and fingered her ass as well till i ejaculated and she sucked her fingers with my sperm on it then she put back her fingers to give me last massage before I leave ,

    I am not sure how risky is it ?

    I already tested in a local laboratory and i did not know the test name but the doctor asked me when was the case and i replied it was 5 Months ago and he advised to do p24 Combo so i told him if it the best and he replied it is a combination test between ag and abs , he performed the test on me and result after 3 hours and he gave me the results report Non-Reactive ,

    Do i need to re-test or it was risky or what shall i do ,?

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      Given your scenario, The risk of HIV transmission would be very low. I would also consider that the 4th generation HIV test you did as conclusive.

      • Assignment Fear

        Thanks for your help , No Need to repeat test ?

        I never got flu nor fever

        • Dr. Julian Ng

          Hi,

          If the testing for HIV Combo (4th Generation) was done 5 months post-exposure and is negative, there is no need to repeat.

          • Assignment Fear

            Yes it was Non REACTIVE after 5.5 Months for Handjob case ,

  14. hello dr tan..
    I had unprotected sex with sex worker at 4 weeks ago, I got gonorea. unfortunately she is HIV positif. Just now I got tested HIV CMIA ag/ab at 28 days, the result is non reaktif. it is extramely conclusive ?, because I get systoms untill now, severe flu, severe fever, sever headec, severe sore throath, dry cough and diarea..
    It is conclusove, and Can I move on and back to my wife?.
    please advice me

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      If you have done the HIV CMIA Ag/Ab test after 28 days, it is generally considered conclusive. As for the symptoms you are experiencing, it may or may not be related. Please visit a doctor for further evaluation.

      • thank you dr julian..

        Our doctor assume that they are probably HIV symtoms acute.. because the hiv guideline of our country uses 3 mounts for all tes type to be considered conclusive, and the doctor suggest to retest after 3 mounts.
        I am very scared.

  15. paranoid

    Hi doctor,

    Sorry but would like to ask a stupid question. I tested negative at 5 weeks using the 4th gen alere test. when I tried to pick up the test strip to take a closer at the result, the doctor instructed me not to touch the strip at all.

    Would like to understand the concern here, please? Is it about contamination, please? But if I tested negative, would contamination be a concern, please?
    Thanks

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      All used test kits (whether or not they are HIV related tests) are considered biohazardous materials and thus should be treated with caution. This has nothing with your HIV results.

      • paranoid

        Thank you Dr Julian.

        Sorry but just to ask again. Say if I have touched it by accident, would it pose any risks to me, please?
        ie. are there any dangerous proteins and/or chemicals which resides on the test strip which is used for testing, please?

        Thanks

  16. question

    Hello sir;
    About 6 months ago I had an unprotected vaginal intercourse with a csw. I was tested at 17-18 day with 4th gen test and it is negative. Also, ı tested at 42 days with 3rd gen test as negative. At 81 day I went to test center and they took my blood sample, they tested with 3rd gen (cmia) but 2 days later(83) due to the weekend. It also came back negative. Do you think that they are conclusive? I have seen some experts that they suggest 6 months re-test?
    Thank You for Your Help

  17. Hi Tan Sir,
    i did have antibody test after 32 days and hiv rna test after 54 days , antibody 3rd generation was negative and rna was not detectable. is this the good sign i dont have hiv?? i had exposure of condom broke.. please suggest.

  18. from website of CDC USA

     

    “Ask your health care provider about the window period for the test you’re taking. If you’re using a home test, you can get that information from the materials included in the test’s package. If you get an HIV test after a potential HIV exposure and the result is negative, get tested again after the window period for the test you’re taking to be sure. If your health care provider uses an antigen/antibody test performed by a laboratory on blood from a vein you should get tested again 45 days after your most recent exposure. For other tests, you should test again at least 90 days after your most recent exposure to tell for sure if you have HIV”.

    question :
    if I want to get 4th. Which one I must follow to get conclusive result.28 days, 45 days and 90 days ?.

    Direct me please, I am confused and paranoid. waiting 90 days is like killing me.

    thanks dr tan and patners
     

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      Generally, if you are tested with a 4th Generation HIV Combo test 28 days post-exposure it is considered conclusive. However, if you are concerned, please discuss with your doctor for further evaluation. If you prefer, you may visit us at: http://www.drtanandpartners.com/where-to-find-us/

  19. hello dr..
    if the window periode of alerr combo ag/ab is 28 days (4 weeks).
    how many weeks of the window periode on CMIA architect ag/ab to be considered as conclusive result.
    because my local contry uses 3 mounts as window periode for all test types.
    thank you.

  20. hello dr tan

    the CMIA ag/ab is accurate at 28 days or after 28 days..
    because I had unprotected sex with 3 csw at 14 feb, 15 feb and 17 feb. 3 girls in different date. and I got gonore. I am scared, I hope I dont get HIV anymore becaUse I got gonore..
    please Advise me..
    when should I get tested for CMIA ag ab?. 28 days or after 28 days to cover the all exposure.
    and which accurate and conclusive, test at 28 days and after 28 days.. ?
    thankyou..

    • To be honest, 1 day probably does not make a huge difference at that point. 28 days or more is fine.

  21. tanks doc,
    but can antibiotics cause all this symptoms because I took a lot of it and I took it without multi vitamins and it was prescribed over the counter without lab evaluation and have been under a lot of stress lately.

  22. Good evening Dr. Jonathan.
    I’m hoping you or one of your physicians can assist me. I had 2 supposed exposures one on sep 19,2017 and one on nov 22, 2017. Got tested on dec 13,2017 with a 4th generation hiv lab test came back negative thank god that would cover sep 19 2017 incident right? Also got a rna tma on January 12,2018 not detected, on January 21,2018 got an hiv antibody test not detected. On feb 6,2018 got an alere 4th generation rapid it was negative also on feb 10, 2018 got a 4th generation lab test it was negative with a hiv 1 rna pcr which was not detected. Do I have to keep testing, are my symptoms due to something else. Please help I’m going insane.

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      You have tested yourself multiple times with the 4th Generation HIV test which definitely covers the 28 days post-exposure time frame and the results are all negative. This is conclusive. For your concerns about your symptoms, please see a doctor for proper assessment. If you like, you may visit us at: http://www.drtanandpartners.com/where-to-find-us/

  23. Hi Dr.
    was exposed in Nov. 14 romanced with genitals but no penetration gone for 3 tests all negative, went for the last one on February 16th,that is (3months and 2days post exposure) using hiv1/2 antibody test came out negative, but still worried cause i can feel a swollen nodes in my armpit and neck, dry cough and mouth burn though it all started after taking antibiotics (ampiclox, amoxcilin and Cipro and series of injections,( bacterid)so worried I look pale and am losing weight.

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      Assuming that I understand you correctly, if there is no penetration, the risk of HIV transmission is extremely low. Also it appears you have tested for HIV with 3rd generation testing and the last test done was > 3 months after exposure, it is very likely conclusive. However with regards to your symptoms, please visit a doctor for further evaluation as it may or may not be HIV-related. If you like, please visit us at: http://www.drtanandpartners.com/where-to-find-us/

      • but can antibiotics cause all this because I took it without prescription at first

      • tanks doc,
        but can antibiotics cause all this symptoms because I took a lot of it and I took it without multi vitamins and it was prescribed over the counter without lab evaluation and have been under a lot of stress lately.

All negative but through out grew lymph nodes and now I have oral hairy leukoplakia , oral thrush and also more and more small white raise bumps appearing on my chest and Back. Do I need a retest ?

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      Assuming that you have been tested with the 4th generation HIV Ag/Ab test multiple times over the last 8 months post-exposure and the tests have been negative, I would say that it is conclusive. However with regard to your symptoms, my suggestion would be to seek further evaluation with a doctor. If you like, you can visit us at: http://www.drtanandpartners.com/where-to-find-us/

      • All of it is taken with the 3rd gen test however no other rashes is found in my body and lymph nodes which grow dissapear within a week and a half

          • Dr. Julian Ng

            Hi,

            HPV is NOT HIV. However, it is not possible to know what those bumps are on your feet without further evaluation. Please see a doctor for further evaluation. If you prefer, you may visit us at: http://www.drtanandpartners.com/where-to-find-us/

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,
      Generally, 4th Generation HIV Ag/Ab test is conclusive after 28 days. Please visit a doctor for testing. If you like, you can visit us at: http://www.drtanandpartners.com/where-to-find-us/

        • Dr. Julian Ng

          Hi,

          In general, 4 weeks post-exposure testing with 4th Generation HIV Ag/ Ab is conclusive. We don’t usually recommend further testing. As mentioned previously, you should visit a doctor for further evaluation.

  28. Hello dr. tan.
    I am from indonesia, I had protected sex in 15 feb 2018, but I still got gonore.
    The window periode for Indonesian guide line is 3 mounts because most of hiv tes types which are used in indonesia are 3rd generation.
    some labs offer CMIA ag/ab 4th gen.
    Please advise me.
    How many days should I wait to get conclusive result for CMIA ag/ab HIV test? 4 weeks or 6 weeks?.
    Thank you

  29. Hihi, i went for 4th gen test and it showed up as negative. I recalled it was as fast as 10min (instead of the 20min quoted by several sites). I tested negative but would just like to understand if 10min is sufficient to read the test, please? Would we be comprising the read of the results by not waiting the full 20min, please? THanks

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      Generally, 10 mins is sufficient time for results to show.

  30. was exposed in Nov. 14 romanced with genitals but no penetration gone for 3 tests all negative, went for the last one on February 16th using hiv1/2 antibody test but still worried cause i can feel a swollen nodes in my armpit and neck, dry cough and mouth burn though it all started after taking antibiotics (ampiclox, amoxcilin and Cipro and series of injections,( bacterid)so worried I look pale and am losing weight

  31. Monica

    Hi,

    Just wanted to check. For syphillis, how long after exposure will I be able to test for it, please?

    Thank you.

  32. Dear Doctors,

    I did the rapid combo tests at your clinic two days ago after 35 day exposure.
    Can i check with you on the brand of the test strip you used, please?

    The doctor told me that my test is negative but i do recall I see two lines (which the doctor told me are control lines) on the test strip. Can I just confirm that the two lines are normal – one for antigen control, one for antibody control. Sorry for being paranoid but I confirm the test strip is supposed to have two lines and everything is ok, please? Thank you

    • The rapid test kit we use is an Alere HIV Combo. There is only a single control line that will be present. I am sure if the doctor told you that the test is clear then you are fine.

  33. Hello Doctor,

    I did finger prick rapid HIV test at your clinic and the result was negative.

    I have seen on the doctor desk four finger prick lancets and I am scare now that the doctor used the same finger prick lancet with previos patient.

    Also I did not see the doctor opened any kit in front of me.

    Could you please let me know if it is one time used only abd can not be used with another patient.

    Thank you in advance.

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      In our clinics we do NOT reuse lancets and all kits are also NOT reused.

      • Thank you very much Dr Julian for prompt response.

        I do belive that I have HIV phobia so please execuse me for my questions.

        Is the finger prick device can be used one time only or it can be reused again by replacing the lancet.

        • Dr. Julian Ng

          Hi,

          There is NO way we can replace the lancet.

    • Hi Doctor,

      I had two protected encounters which were 28 days and 20days ago respectively. I did a 4th gen combo test today and it came back negative.

      Can I just check if I need to retest again after a week?

      I understand that the 1st encounter 28days ago should be conclusive but the 2nd encounter 20days ago would still be subject to a small percentage of uncertainty?

      Thank you

      • Yes, you would need to repeat a test for the second exposure, although I would say it is a good indication already.

  34. I have done alere rapid combo test hiv 1,2 ab/ag because i’m not sure about my act whether there is penetration through vagina or not and the test is done on 31 day after exposure the result is negative.The people that done the test said that the result is conclusive and don’t have to repeat testing. In your opinion is it conclusive and the result will remain the same even i done some test after 3 months and six month? the anxiety is killing me.
    really need expert opinion on this.tahnkyou.

      Hi, mat

      Generally, Alere Rapid Combo HIV test has a 28 day window period. If you did your test after the 28 day window period, it is conclusive.

  35. Sir, if combo test is conclusive, Y some doctors recommend to repeat after 3month

  36. Sir I had unprotected sex 35days back.. I hv checked hiv status with hiv1&2 /hiv 1p24 combo test.. It came negative.. Is it confirmatory??

  37. I had unprotected sex 35days back.. I hv checked using hiv1/2 p24 combo rest.. It came negative.. Is it confirmatory?.

  38. Hi doctor, I received a protected blowjob from someone. She was only suck the condom portion. There was no sucking of testis etc.

    Am I required to do any STD checkup? Would u recommend me?

    I’m super worried.

  39. Hi Doctor,

    I had unprotected sex with a worker 36 days ago and im still having a sore throat, fatigue,chest pain & occasional facial flush. I tested for hiv at 2 weeks duo combo 3 weeks and 4 weeks. All negative. I had bloodwork done to and my lymphocytes absolutes were high and eosinophils were low. Do you feel like im Hiv free or not?

    • I would consider your tests conclusive. Sounds like you have a regular viral flu most likely.

      • Thank you so much for your fast response. Unfortunately they tested me for the flu twice and strep but negative. The sore throat doesnt go away and it looks like there might be little white spots near the sides of my tonsils now plus i feel like my chest is congested but nothing of color comes up. Any ideas?

  40. Hi Doctor, Blow job without condom from CSW

    Day 44 HIV PCR undetectable

    Day 57 HIV2 RT PCR undetectable

    I tested the lady after 7 days of exposure using HIV 1&2 + p24 COMBO Test CMIA

    All above mentioned tests came out negative

    Can conclusive yet? And do I REQUIRE any further testing??

    • Your risk is already close to zero. Your testing is excessive and conclusive. Move on with your life.

      • If conclusive,then why do other sites suggest retesting at 12 weeks?? #confused

  41. Hi drtan,
    After a broken condom incident with a csw i tested negative using a 4th gen test (ag ab) at 23.5days. I wish to visit your clinic on the coming mon 12 feb 18. How indicative is the 23.5day test? Isit likely to change after 4.5 days? If i come down to test on the 29th day (full 28days) isit conclusive?

    • Also the 4th gen test was taken at an AFA mobile testing van.

  42. was exposed in Nov. 14 romanced with genitals but no penetration gone for 3 tests all negative, went for the last one on February 5th but still worried cause i can feel a swollen nodes in my armpit and neck, dry cough and mouth burn though it all started after taking antibiotics (ampiclox, amoxcilin and Cipro and series of injections,( bacterid)so worried I look pale and am losing weight

  43. Dr.Tan , Dr.Jonathan ,

    I have been living with the fear of the HIV since more than 2 years ( 25 months ) i think Am going to far with it but i can not stop thinking that i contracted to the virus but maybe it will appear after several months or several years ,

    As i have said before my cases was 2 10th jan 2016 & 2nd November 2016 and just handjob till ejaculation and i was also fingering the csw two times each and not sure about thier HIV status but i never had any intercourse with any on of them at all even there was no direct contact between my penis and thier vagina at all and she lickedmy balls for 5 seconds , my penis only touches her butt skin on the checks that was all ,

    First test I did Hiv p24 Ag Abs Combo test after 63 days from the expousre of the first case( Non Reactive )

    Second test I did Hiv p24 Ag Abs Combo test after 5.5 months from the second expousre & about 15 months from the above first case case( Non Reactive )

    I am afraid as my lady and little girl theyhave lympho in thier neack and i am afraid its me and might be the Hiv is the reason ,

    Do you think the tests are conclusive ?

    From your experience one test even enough if it was more than 4 months or it has to be more than 6 months all the time better am so sad and afraid i feel my life stopped after those 2 expousre ?

    Help Help please is it sensitive tests and would pick up the infection in the time i described please tell me hwhat you really think ?

    • Your tests are conclusive. And your exposure risk is zero. Please see a psychiatrist or counselor for your irrational anxiety and paranoia.

  44. Thanks u so much dr.i have small cut on my penis and she kis on my penis with saliva.can i infected from saliva for infected person

    • I would say there is little to no risk from this exposure.

      • Dear dr this is my last question .how many day before hiv dao test ditect infection.i have have dao test 32day 52day and 82 day afer.

  45. Dr Elaine Loh

    There is no risk of contracting HIV from a handjob. In my opinion, it is not necessary to re-test.

    • Thanks u so much dr.i have small cut on my penis and she kis on my penis with saliva.can i infected from saliva for infected person

  46. Good day sir

    I had a Thai massage the place was a bit sketchy not clean. I did not receive any type of sex. The masseuse stayed fully clothed I kept my boxers on. I often have small cuts on my hands and arms. 17 days after event came down with fever diarrhea body aches. I perceived there to be no risk. Then I noticed I was looking weight and tested for his. The test was negative and taken 33 days after. It was a lab based 4th generation tests brand abott architect. AM I over this, is there any way I could have him from this exposure
