You're OK: Oral sex is safe sex for HIV, with no proved transmissions by fellatio from mouth to penis, only rare ones penis to oral. You didn't need testing on account of this event and for sure not the multiple expensive ones you had. But the results from that combination of tests are conclusive. For sure you didn't catch HIV during that exposure and no further testing is needed. Best wishes and stay safe! ...Read more
Polymerase chain reaction is a method of finding a specific piece of dna and copying it over and over again until there is enough to study. The technique allows a scientist to detect very small amounts of dna in a swab sample then reproduce enough of it to study it.

Hyperthyroidism: Hi. Your tests show hyperthyroidism. Maybe it's a temporary thyroiditis or maybe it's Graves' disease (unlikely to be a toxic multi nodular with those numbers).

HOWEVER - your behavior is risky. Saliva can contain the HIV virus and while you may not have any cuts or sores - your partner could easily scratch or bite you. Be careful!! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hiv has many types and subtypes.so can an HIV DNA PCR test after 21 days of possible exposure rule out HIV completely?
HIV testing: Certainly possible exposure to HIV is worrisome. Rest assured however that HIV testing is extremely good.
