My ELISA HIV test came up negative after 1month exposure. How accurate is this test?

90%: There's a period of time after a person is infected during which they won't test positive. This is called the “hiv window period.”

The window period can be from 9 days to 3-6 months, depending on the person's body and on the HIV-test that's used. ...Read more

Hiv (Definition)

Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. 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

I have repeated perinal fungal infection. I did HIV test one year post exposure it is negative. Need to repeat the test? Is that hiv?

No more testing: The HIV tests are among the most accurate diagnostic tests ever developed, for any health problem. Your negative test proves for sure you do not have HIV. And the large majority of perianal yeast/fungal infections are not due to HIV anyway. No worries, but check with your doctor about treating or preventing the perianal irritation. Good luck! ...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.

I had a negative HIV test 1 year after possible exposure. Does that mean I don't have hiv?

I had a negative HIV test 1 year after possible exposure. Does that mean I don't have hiv?

Likely you don't.: This window apparently can vary with the individual seroconversion. The recommended testing of patients is at initial exposure, at 6 weeks, at 3 months, and at 6 months. Many specimens positive with screening elisa are indeterminate on western blot, and so can be tested by immunofluorescence assay (ifa) more than one month later. If you are still negative after 1 year you likely don't have it. ...Read more

I had a negative HIV test 1 year after possible exposure. Is it possible to still be HIV positive?

Reassuring: Although a negative test 1 year after exposure is very reassuring, if there has been continued exposure, frequent testing is indicated. Typically, a patient converts and becomes HIV positive within 6 months after exposure. ...Read more

Rapid HIV test accurate? Tested oraquick, clearview, unigold all after 6 months and negative. Body aches for year. Do I need to retest or can I trust?

HIV Nucleic acid: A negative antibody test, like oraquick, at 6 months is a good sign but it does not rule out HIV infection. To be sure you should see your doctor for nucleic acid test (pcr), if that is negative at six months it would be more definitive. See this site for more info.

Wht cause a false pos ELISA HIV test with neg naat and western blot? 2 neg oral fluid rapid results. After 1 year exposur. Ihave autoimmune hypotyroid

No answer: Please. How many times are you going to ask the same question. There is no right answer here. Your body has something triggering the simple HIV antibody test to be positive. It is not HIV causing this symptom. In the future you should avoid these tests and get the better test. You have been given this answer numerous times. It is time to move on. ...Read more

Last HIV test I had was more than a year ago, which was taken 8 mont after exposure. It was neg- but this week I got a burning feet dat won't go away.

Probably not related: Burning feed is usually not a symptom of negative HIV exposure. If you suspect that you have an issue, you should see your PCP for further evaluation. Burning feet can be a symptom of other conditions that need to be worked up. Good luck! ...Read more

Happy New year. How accurate is a DNA PCR HIV Test with Negative results Past 32 weeks of unprotected sex and 2weeks past protected sex with a csw?

Happy New year. How accurate is a DNA PCR HIV Test with Negative results Past 32 weeks of unprotected sex and 2weeks past protected sex with a csw?

Happy for you: You didn't get HIV from your first adventure. Protected sex when you're a man is unlikely to transmit HIV. How about playing really safe from now on -- not so much out of fear, but out of respect for that one special person who may be in your future? You can get plenty else from messing around -- including unwanted complications. It's a rare, wise guy who works hard to stay clean. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have taken four of the ora quick HIV test and they all have been negative. My last one was at the two month mark should I be ok?

HIV DNA by PCR: When hospital workers are stuck with needles contaminated by HIV positive patients, they get a blood test called HIV dna by pcr which can tell if you have been infected within the last week. Antibody tests take up to 6 months to turn positive after HIV exposure. The HIV dna by pcr test is available at stdtestexpress. Com. ...Read more

Hi! I have made a HIV test 8 months ago and it was negative 0.195. But I did another one today and the result was neagtive the value was 0.505.Why?

Hi! I have made a HIV test 8 months ago and it was negative 0.195. But I did another one today and the result was neagtive the value was 0.505.Why?

Limits to Levels: These tests are designed to detect levels of antibody/antigen. Every test is subject to variability as the specimen can vary as can the reagents used for the test. Other viral illness and even allergies can affect the test result levels. If a value changes between screens and risky behavior has occurred a different confirmatory test should be done, not the same test. The value is meaningless. ...Read more

HIV nucleic acid: Test. A negative antibody test at 6 weeks does not exclude HIV infection. A negative HIV nucleic acid test would. The odds of getting the infection depends on the type of exposure and the viral load in the fluid to which you were exposed. ...Read more
