When they come in contact with a new cell, they attach to the cell membrane and are transmitted. Therefore, you can't get gonorrhea by touching a toilet or tabletop for example. ...Read more

What is the likelihood of a false negative on a PCR RNA TMA HIV test at 15-20 days post PEP/post exposure? I have heard of false positives.

Too soon to rule: Out HIV. The PCR RNA test if negative at about 3 months after exposure would rule out infection. A negative result before than may not be definitive. A positive result be definitive any time. ...Read more

Paranoia about HIV exposure. 4th Gen test, negative at 9th, 17th, and 37th day. RNA QL TMA early test, negative at 17th and 37th day. Can I rest easy?

Paranoia about HIV exposure. 4th Gen test, negative at 9th, 17th, and 37th day. RNA QL TMA early test, negative at 17th and 37th day. Can I rest easy?

Rest easy: There are 2 types of HIV tests, viral antibody tests are the most common and inexpensive. 95% of people who have contracted AIDS show positive within 90 days, but it can take 6 months. Then there are tests looking for the virus itself (viral load) these will be positive within 2 weeks or sooner. These are the early tests such as RNA QL TMA. Based on that, Be safe and relax. Good health ...Read more

+ gonorrhoeae DNA amplification test, but, neg. Amp RNA test(source urine). Do they have gonorrhoeae? Is one test more reliable?

Complicated: Although these tests are very sensitive there are false positive results because of the potential presence of other benign species of neisseria. If you had to compare the two it would be without much relevant data. Bacterial culture will provide both a definitive diagnosis and allow determination of antibiotic sensitivities. ...Read more
