Probably: However, it is too soon to tell. If you had high risk exposure you should discuss prophylactic treatment with your doctor. It may take up to six months for HIV infection to manifest itself, so you should repeat the tests in 6 months. ...Read more

Too soon to rule: out HIV. The PCR RNA test if negative at about 3 months after exposure would rule out infection. A negative result before than may not be definitive. A positive result be definitive any time. ...Read more

Paranoia about HIV exposure. 4th Gen test, negative at 9th, 17th, and 37th day. RNA QL TMA early test, negative at 17th and 37th day. Can I rest easy?

Paranoia about HIV exposure. 4th Gen test, negative at 9th, 17th, and 37th day. RNA QL TMA early test, negative at 17th and 37th day. Can I rest easy?

Rest easy: There are 2 types of HIV tests, viral antibody tests are the most common and inexpensive. 95% of people who have contracted AIDS show positive within 90 days, but it can take 6 months. Then there are tests looking for the virus itself (viral load) these will be positive within 2 weeks or sooner. These are the early tests such as RNA QL TMA. Based on that, Be safe and relax. Good health ...Read more

You have chlamydia: "Detected" means the test found chlamydia -- i.e. a positive result. Return to the doctor or clinic where the test was done for treatment.

Until : Until you see the doctor you can try some over the counter hemorrhoid medication. There are many products in your local pharmacy dedicated to hemorrhoid treatment. These include creams that you apply to the rectum, medicated pads that can be placed over the anus, and rectal suppositories that can be inserted into the rectum. I recommend one of the first two choices until you can see the doctor. Also increase your fiber and water intake. Take care. ...Read more
