An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more

Nucleic acid test:
As I suggested earlier, get HIV nucleic acid test at 12 weeks after exposure to rule out HIV infection.

Very rare: HIV transmission by oral sex is very rare. One estimate is that if one partner has HIV, penile to oral averages one transmission for every 10, 000 events, 1 in 20, 000 oral to penis. These are equivalent to giving or receiving BJs by infected partners once once a day for 27 and 55 years before transmission might be expected. Transmission by cunnilingus (oral-vaginal) probably is even more uncommon. ...Read more
It is very unlikely to get HIV as the receptive partner in oral sex (the one receiving oral sex). Performing oral sex on a man us more risky than performing oral sex on a female.

How likely is a 10 week HIV negative oral test to change after taken 5 of them to change at thirteen weeks.
HIV testing: Most people develop HIV antibodies within 2-8 weeks of their infection. The average is 25 days. 97% of people will develop detectable antibodies in the first 3 months. Rarely, it can take up to 6 months to develop antibody. If there's concern about acute hiv, a test that measures HIV RNA viral load can be done. The time between HIV infection and RNA detection is about 10 days. Talk with md. ...Read more
What to do if I have mixed emotions about getting HIV from oral sex so i'd like to know what you think?
Mixed feelings!: How could you have mixed feelings regarding acquisition of hiv? But this is the reality! Easy to get hpv and herpes from oral sex-either way. Women can more easily contract HIV from performing oral sex and swallowing semen. Men rarely can contract HIV from performing oral sex on females. Women would be wise to asking males to have a condom! ...Read more
In march 2016 I had gave this boy oral sex I went yesterday and got tested can you get hiv fro oral sex? I am so worry. I test in jan for hiv and neg
Almost zero risk: Oral sex is very low risk, no need for another HIV test. For penile to oral HIV transmission, the average is once for every 10, 000 exposures. That's equivalent to giving oral to HIV infected men once daily for 27 years before transmission might be likely. And it's unlikely your partner had HIV anyway. But higher risk for oral STDs like gonorrhea; consider seeing your doctor for a throat swab. ...Read more
I did oral 5 months ago, got tested and I have hsv1. But I worry I have HIV from oral and I tested negative 4 times already. Should I worry?
Probably not: But how soon after the oral sex did you get tested. You should be tested at 4 and 12 weeks. If they are negative then would not worry. If you know the man then you could find out if he is positive. This is one way of acquiring hiv, and you should protect yourself in the same manner as if you were having vaginal or anal intercourse. ...Read more
Dr accidentally re-used a thermometer without the plastic cover (noticed afterward), it this a risk for HIV transmission?? Oral thermometer
No risk, no worry: HIV is not transmitted by oral contact. For example, kissing carries no risk, and neither does oral sex (or so little that there are no proved cases of HIV transmission mouth to penis). So even if a previous patient using the thermometer had HIV, you would not be at risk. Maybe very small risk for more common viruses, like colds and influenza. But not HIV. ...Read more
