Sero-conversion: The whole concept of delayed sero-conversion dates back to old & sloppy tests. PCR testing now will show virus in the blood with or without antibodies. If you need to cling to the old adages...at 6 months. 99.99% of the population will have developed antibodies after an exposure. Thus the 6 month window. I believe a colleague of mine Lyssette Cardona, MD is in Dubai. She's one of the best!! ...Read more

I got RNA HIV test negative after 25 days after exposure should I be still worried or its 100 accurate? ? Please help

I got RNA HIV test negative after 25 days after exposure should I be still worried or its 100 accurate? ? Please help

Nothing is 100%: "old-school" reccs re-test at 3-6-12 months to be "sure" negative is negative. This is evolving to recheck at 6 months. If cannot stand the wait, 3 months will catch vast majority who will eventually convert. Can search "window period" to learn more about when test may be too early to show true positive. ...Read more

If I had an HIV test 25 days after possible exposure and it came back negative is that pretty reliable? It was an antibody and antigen test

HIV testing: You should be followed up with a repeat test at 3 mos, but the test you had is fairly reliable by itself. The problem is the rare individual whose tests become positive later than the 25 period you mention. ...Read more

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

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

ELISA and repeat: If your worried about an single exposure and don't have any symptoms you should just get a standard elisa and repeat it in 3 and 6 months. If you have symptoms that a doctor believes can be acute HIV syndrome, then other tests like p24 and CD4 count can be used. ...Read more

Aftr 70 days of unprctd sex, I got HIV test & reslt was HIV -. Does this mean I am safe?

Not entirely: What test did you get? Antibodies to hiv, the usual test, take variable amounts of time to develop in different people. If you are antibody negative one year after exposure that would be more or less safe. Please consult your doctor for getting nucleic acid test that turns positive sooner, of one is infected. ...Read more

Is 24 days HIV test good for result? If I tested negative on 24th day? Do I need to retest?

Would retest: Most rapid HIV tests would be positive 4 to 6 weeks after HIV exposure. However some won't be positive for up to 3 months after exposure. If possible, I would ask whoever performed the test this question. If they are unsure, I would repeat the test 3 months after the exposure. ...Read more

I took a 5th gen Ag/Ab HIV test 39 days post possible exposure. Result was non-reactive. Am I ok?

Conclusive HIV test: "Fifth generation" for an HIV test is marketing hype -- the manufacturer calls their new test 5th gen, but it's still bacially the same as all other 4th generation tests. Results of 4th gen HIV tests are usually conclusive after 4 weeks and always by 6 weeks (42 days). But 39 days is close enough; for sure you didn't catch HIV. ...Read more

Okay: Both of you are HIV negative, that is good. Stay in a monogamous relationship.
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. 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. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

It's conclusive: It's pretty much impossible to have HIV for 4 weeks or more and have a negative combo test. Persons or websites saying otherwise are either not up to speed in their knowledge or are providing hyper-conservative advice. ...Read more

Can you tell me is DNA prc HIV test after 8 days accurate!?

Too soon: If you mean the test was done 8 days after the potential exposure to hiv, it was too soon to test. The test result may be accurate but inappropriate as it was done too early. See this site for info.
