My bro. Is afraid to be infected by aids. He made p24 test after nine days of sexual relation. The result is negative. Is it enough to show no infection?
Recheck: Check for HIV infection again in 3 and 6 months. If your bro. Knew his partner was infected and did not use protection, he is a high risk for infection. Post infection prophylaxis with antiretroviral drug may be indicated asap. If this is the case consult a physician asap. If he doesn't know, then the risk may lower but present. I will advise to see a physician for a more in depth discussion. ...Read more
My bro. Is afraid to be infected by aids. He made p24 test after 9 days of sexual relation. The result is negative. Is it enough to show no infection?
No: 9 days after may not be sufficient time. An average, anyone need about 2 weeks after event for so named "seroconversion" to happen. It is time body's immune system need to develop response. It is average time when likelihood of false negative results is minimal. Also please understand that your rest result is not something absolute. It has to be interpreted by your doctor in context of event. ...Read more

Is 3rd generation rapid test conclusive at 83/84th day from a low risk sexual encounter (oral; giving and recieved)?
Yes: There is no reason for any further study. You're an adult now and it's good to get a HIV check yearly. You can get gonorrhea and other stuff from either giving or receiving this way, but the HIV risk is too low to estimate. I hope you'll cherish what happened, even though human love is never perfect, and love wisely and well from now on. ...Read more

The best time to take one is when you miss your period. ...Read more
What test should one make after two weeks of sexual relation to know if he is infected by aids? Is it p24?
Question unclear: If you are referring to your male sexual partner he should go to the health department and have HIV antibody testing performed. You can measure p14 antigen or better, if you don't mind the cost, have an hiv/rna pcr done. Good luck. You should not be having unprotected sex with anyone until they have been tested and only if they are in a monogamous relationship with you. ...Read more

Ten years ago I had a risk sexual encounter about a month ago I took 3 oraquick tests all negative are they reliable after that long.?
Quite reliable: In studies, the screening test detected 91.7% of people who were infected with HIV. A false negative screening test occurs with a very recent infection- a window period of several weeks may be present when antibodies to the virus have not reached a concentration that is visible by the test. Given a 10 year gap since the event, the test is reliable; false (-) test is unlikely. ...Read more
I had a risky sexual encounter over ten years ago. I took two oraquick tests a couple of weeks ago both negative. Are they reliable after ten years?
Ii have been sexually active since the age of 16. Ii am now 21. Should II be getting smear tests? When II called to book one they said not till im 25.
Now is good: Most offices start checking with onset of sexual activity so you can be checked for STDs which can affect fertility. Definitely get screened at 21 if you're sexually active. Once you've been screened with normal smears & (-)hpv tests; then your doc can help you decide how often to be checked. I do have pts who need treatment for high-grade pap smears in their teens. Call again or switch offices. ...Read more
How did I get chylmidia but my boyfriend of a year test negative? I haven't had any sexual contact with anyone besides him. Why don't we both have it?
You boyfriend had it: It is harder to culture from the male so if you have not been with anyone else you had to have gotten it from him, and he obviously got it from someone else either while you have been going out with him, or he could have gotten it from someone before he met you, so time for him to man up and tell you the truth or time for u to move on, obviously your decision. ...Read more
4days late on cycle been sexually active all week & weekend he didn't pull out cycle came day 4 still could I get or be prego when do I take a test?
After missed period:
Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.

What is a sane test and what do they do during one? I know that its a sexual abuse test but what exactly is it? Where can I get more information on it?
Hello.: Hello. I believe you are describing a competency evaluation which is sometimes used if a lawyer plans to make an insanity defense. Although there is likely to be an inquiry about past sexual abuse, it certainly is not limited to this. It is normally a very comprhensive evaluation which includes psychological testing. It if often used to determine if a person knew right from wrong when they committed a crime, to determine if they have a severe mental disorder and to see if they are able to intelligently cooperate with their attorney. You could probably google the subject, but I don't know if will give you the exact evaluation template that an evaluator would use. ...Read more

There are separate tests for each of the sexually transmitted infections. There is no well defined panel of "regular" blood tests.
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.

Now or ever?: I'll assume you are referring to the pap test. This standard measure for detecting cervical cancer is not based on your present level of sexual activity. If you were ever sexually active in the past, your chance of acquiring one of the hpv viruses that could lead to cervical cancer decades later are high. Discuss this with your obgyn. ...Read more
May be: The results will be accurate but may not answer your question. Did you miss a period? If not you may have tested too early to detect pregnancy. Even the blood test should be done a day or two after missed period. A negative result on a test done too early does not rule out pregnancy. ...Read more
