How Long Does A Hiv Test Result Take
Depends on type: An HIV test can be done instantly in the doctor's office (results are not as reliable), or it can be done in a regular lab. Usually not more than 2-3 days. However, many labs "batch" test -- meaning they only test for certain analytes once per week or every 3 days. So, maybe that is the delay... ...Read more

How long after possible HIV exposure can I get a definitive test result from a home oraquick HIV test?
NEVER definitive: There are several percent false negatives on home oraquick. Alex, you can't go on worrying like this -- it'll slow you down emotionally and interfere with your work and just being happy. Get with your primary care physician and pay for a nucleic acid test now. It's better to know, no matter what the result. Be brave, cherish the memory of love, and move on with your life. ...Read more
Given that HIV 1 RNA PCR test result undetectable 25 days after possible exposure, when and which HIV test to take next?
Is this rational?: If there's some particular reason to think she bears you malice (and it's not impossible), ask the lab to send you a copy of the paperwork. It's your legal right. If you have the obsessive idea that you have HIV despite a report of normal, and you recognize this as a trick your mind is playing,then your physician can recommend ways to manage this -- happens to many of us. Glad you're asking. ...Read more

Wish you 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.

Yes: What's important in the interim between initial negative HIV test and repeat test is "protected" "safe" sex, not just "sex" which exposes you repeatedly to opportunity for infection. Don't forget that HIV is not the only std that can be transmitted so be sure to get tested for "everything". ...Read more
Is oraquick home HIV test accurate ? My boyfriend and I both got negative test result and I want be sure it is accurate . Thankyou
More or less:
If done correctly a negative result is reassuring. However, it depends on when you may have been exposed to HIV as it may take occasionally take 6-12 months for antibodies to form. You may repeat the test in 6 months and if it is negative and both of you have been in a mutually monogamous relation, that would be good.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat 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. ...Read more
Can Truvada for 21 (stopped at 4 weeks past possible hiv exposure) cause a negative hiv test result at 11 weeks past possible exposure ?
Yes & No: The purpose of the Truvada as I understand your question was to prevent HIV after you had an exposure to it. Assuming this is the case, then a negative HIV result could be that the Truvada did it's job or that your exposure was minimal and you did not contract HIV - Either way at 11 weeks, it's pretty safe to say you are HIV- and unless you have had another exposure will remain that way. ...Read more
Is there an HIV test result on this list? I asked them for one but i'm not sure what these results mean.
My wife is pregnant at ninth month, her HIV test result is 0.27 s/co "non-reactive", what is the meaning of this result?
My HIV test result is 0.9-1.0=1.0 and healthtap doctors answered that,this is HIV negetive.can i continue my sexual life with my family?thanks.
Never give up loving: I'm glad you got good news. If you're reassured you are HIV negative and it's been enough time after the dangerous event for you to be confident, then go back to unprotected intercourse if that is your wish. Until then, use a condom. Many couples prefer this anyway. You MUST not forego intercourse in a marriage, though it can be protected, or other aspects of the relationship will tend to fail. ...Read more
Hiv rna test result undetected after unprotected blowjob at day17. Test range 40 to 10mil. Is it conclusive?regular hiv test neg at 15 days. Hiv?
No risk: HIV is rarely transmitted by oral sex. If you were the receiver of the BJ, you can be sure you weren't infected: there are few if any proved cases of oral to genital HIV transmission. Most experts would have recommended against an RNA test in this situation, but the negative result is additional strong evidence you weren't infected. The "regular" test is only slightly reassuring, 4-6 wk minimum. ...Read more
Would cured/treated primary complex at 5 years old affect hiv test result at 25 years old, 9 months after exposure? Primary complex was just one-off
No: Primary complex if tuberculosis (TB). Having TB currently or in the past should not alter the results of modern HIV tests. If a person is not monogamous with an HIV-negative partner, meaning she has other possible but low-risk exposures, she can get see her primary care doctor and ask about routine screening. It might be annual testing. ...Read more

Hi small doubt did hiv test result negative after 28 days of risk attitude but after 10 days of test found 1 rash in my stomach ,any chances?
Not HIV: HIV doesn't cause rash alone; without sore throat, fever, and/or enlarged lymph nodes, you can be sure the rash isn't due to new HIV. Also, if you had a 4th generation or "duo" test, the negative result 28 days after the last possible exposure is conclusive. If an antibody-only test, it's still around 95% reliable, but for reassurance you might get tested again at 6-8 weeks. Good luck! ...Read more
Varies: Results from antibody tests sent to a laboratory usually take one to three days to return. If the test is positive, results may be delayed while the laboratory does a Western blot to be sure that HIV antibody is present. Western blot tests take only one day to perform, but some laboratories may not run the test every day. Results from rapid tests done in the doctor's office can be 15-20 minutes. ...Read more
