What's the accuracy of HIV test in 2 weeks after unsafe sex? And aslo 4 weeks after unsafe sex? Cause I'm so much worry can't wait for three months.

Wait: An early test might show hiv, but you really can't know for sure until 3-6 months unfortunately. Get tested now but also get the 3 and 6 month tests. If you think this was a high risk exposure you should also be tested for other stds as well as hepatitis b ; c which can be transmitted sexually. ...Read more

Three days shy of three months when taking STD test that included HIV how accurate is it and should I be retested any help is greatly appreciated?

Three days shy of three months when taking STD test that included HIV how accurate is it and should I be retested any help is greatly appreciated?

Results conclusive: The modern, routine HIV tests are conclusive by 4 wk (for the 4th generation, antigen-antibody tests) or 6-8 weeks (for the antibody tests). Three months is old news, left over from older tests no longer in routine use. So your test just short of 3 months will be conclusive. Any other STD blood tests also will be conclusive. No further testing will be necessary. ...Read more

What's the accuracy of DUO HIV test after 10 days?

Around 50%: Roughly half of newly infected people would have a positive duo test at 10 days. If at truly high risk, like unprotected sex with a known infected partner, ask about an RNA test for the virus. However, heterosexually acquired HIV remains quite rare in the UK. If at lower risk, have another duo test at 28 days, which will be conclusive. Or get expert advice at an NHS GUM clinic. Good luck! ...Read more

How reliable (percentage of accuracy) of 4rd generation hiv test (duo test) at 14.5 day after exposure? Thank you very much

Depends: It is accurate if positive. However, two weeks is too soon to rule out infection. At six months after exposure, get a HIV nucleic acid test, if that is negative, it would be definitive indication of being HIV free.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

On 10 day 5 mg predisone 36 pills wanted to know can I go do my 4th gen duo hiv test on these meds or do I need to wait for accurate results I'm on my fifth day of prednisone?

No: Would be helpful to know more about your history, but in a person with relatively normally functioning immune system, 5mg prednisone would not decrease circulating antibody levels (or virus antigen levels). Test will be accurate on this regimen. ...Read more

How to accurately test HIV at day 64?

HIV antibody: We screen for HIV exposure with an antibody test. It can take 3- 6 months to turn positive, so serial testing is important. We do not routinely test HIV RNA (viral load) since it can show low level false positive results, but if someone presents with a prolonged flu-like syndrome we may check the viral load to help diagnose acute hiv. ...Read more
