After 7.6 weeks (almost 8weeks) i tested antibody rapid test and it came back negative result and re-tested again for SD BIOLINE HIV TEST KIT after 89 days and it came back negative. Question, where should i rely in my 2 result? Is hic kit test is accurate? Should i moves on? Thank you

    Hi Dr.,

    I would like your opinion on my case.I had protected vaginal sex with a sexworker more than a month ago. After the act, I didn’t check whether the condom was broken, it was an unknown brand of latex condom so I kind of felt it was unreliable. I felt uneasy and went to doctor for assessment. I got negative on Alere HIV Combo rapid test and was prescribed PEP, which I took the first tablet at 46th hours from exposure. I took it for 30 days without missing a dose. Now I went to have another Alere HIV Combo rapid test, which showed negative as well

    I have a few questions:
    1. How high was my risk back then?
    2. Is the Alere HIV Combo test result conclusive after 30 days? Considering that I took PEP for the same duration
    3. I have read somewhere that PEP can reduce viral load to undetectable level. Could this be why the test showed negative? Now I have stopped PEP, is there a possibility that the HIV will surge again (in case I got it the first place)?

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      Risk of HIV transmission can be affected by many factors including the risk of the partner, the kind of sexual act, whether it was protected and if there was any condom breakage or slippage and so on. In general if it was protected sex, generally the risk is very low or even negligible. With regards to the 4th Generation HIV test you did 30 days after exposure, I would consider the result as conclusive. However if you are still concerned you can repeat the HIV test in 3 months time. As for the 3rd question, if the PEP was effective it would have prevent HIV from infecting you thus even if you have completed the course of the PEP as recommended, there is no reason to believe that you will get HIV for that encounter.

        Hi Doctor,

        Thank you for your response. For third question, what I meant to ask is: Since I took the first pill at the 46th hour, is there any chance that the virus already took a reservoir somewhere, and PEP just only kept the free virus low, so when I stop PEP, the virus in reservoir will multiply again?

        In other word, is there a chance that the test result is false negative?

        Thank you

  3. I have go thru the HIV test and STD test on 14 days of oral sex exposure. Both result was negative.

    But,i still encounter itchy on my testicles and needle pain at urethra.I do not feel pain while urine but just go urine more often.

    Can i know what is the cause?and is my test done on 14 days are clear? Am i suppose to do another round of HIV test?

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      I would say you should do testing again fro both STD and HIV after 28 days. The symptoms you are experiencing may or may not related to STD, please visit your doctor for further evaluation.

  4. Hello dr.

    thank you

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      I’m a bit confused. Is she HIV positive or not?

      • I dont khow Exactly, but she said that she is hiv positif.
        advice me.. should I retest again after 3 mounts, because I got gonorea from her

        • Dr. Julian Ng

          Hi,

          If you are still concern, I would consider retesting again in 3 months time especially if she is proven to be HIV positive.

  5. Hi Dr,

    I had a possible exposure with a friend of mine. We are both females and we were roughly kissing and she fingered me anally and vaginally resulting in many cuts in me that soaked my panties but didn’t require any medical care. If she had vaginal fluids or cuts in her hand while she was fingering me, am I at risk? We were also kissing and I’m not sure if she had any bleeding but I have unhealthy gums. What are my risks for HIV and could I be also so-infected with hep c? I tested with a 4th gen at 30 days and about 56 days and both came out negative. Do I require more testing?

  6. Hi dear Dr hook/Dr hunter ,it’s my second time in this forum unfortunately and I’m still scared to death, exposure end of September 2017, I’m male had heterosexual intercourse with black csw, I was completely drunk but I remember it was protected with condom, couldn’t finish so removed the condom and did some masterbation, she spit on my penis!! Didn’t ask for that but couldn’t stop her unfortunately ، since then after 2 days had painful urination very tender organ.. a week later had ARS similar symptoms.. Passed after 2 weeks… Including night sweat mouth ulcers severe weakness about 8 kg weight loss out of 90kg muscle joints pain.. Was pretty much sure that I contracted hiv so went for 4th generation lab test after 8 weeks, was negative!!, most symptoms passed apart from strange migratory joint pain especially in big joints but including wrists, improved a bit!! Also tingling numbness in arms and legs which became severe nowadays, second combo test at 16 weeks at different lab – – very reliable one in Israel also negative!! Again was pretty sure it’s false negative, had consulted with Dr hunter handsfield Dr Sean Cummings as well and some local hiv doctors who didn’t examine me but reassured me that I’m negative, what’s killing me indeed nowadays are nail fingers pain in all of the fingers in both hands with transverse white discoloration.. And also I think I’m losing a lot of fat in some areas of my face, chin around eyes.. Performed a 3rd generation finger prick which uses blood some days ago at an hiv center, don’t remember the manufacturer, – – 6 months plus after the single time risk exposure!! Once again negative!! Are we talking about false negative!!??? By the way I consulted with Dr Sean Cummings and Dr hunter handsfield after my 2nd test at 16 weeks they assured me everything is OK, what do you think Dr?? Please help me cause my life became a total mess, lost job and almost losing my wife and everything

    • Dr. Julian Ng

      Hi,

      Your HIV results are conclusive. Please move on with your life.

    Dear expert, I’ve recently done a finger prick test for HIV. The results were negative. However, an incident I’ve witness makes me wonder if Im potentially exposed during my routine check.

    During the process of the test, I didnt have time to check for the cleanliness and state of the equipment used on me at the clinic. To make the situation worse, the gum clinic was extremely crowded. Judging by the crowd, out of mistake due to the hectic crowd, the clinic might accidentally re-use the finger prick lancet on me, they also used a steel tray to hold all the equipment brought to me. Which chances are used by a previous patient and might have blood dropped on it for various reasons and not sterilized in time for use. The cotton wool I’ve used to stopped bleeding were on the steel tray when the test was carried out. If the cotton wool were to absorb any blood on the tray prior to putting on my finger prick wound. Am I in any danger? Im also unsure if the the lab technician changes her glove for different patient as she is attending to patient non-stop. Im worried sick, please advice. Could there be a chance where hiv positive blood went into my finger pricked wound in any of the above ways or the reused finger prick were previously used on a hiv patient prior to my usage? The part were the cotton wool accidentally absorb blood on the tray as well.

    Hope to hear from you soon.
