I had unprotected oral sex on me I saw no blood I have no sores I am circumsized I have tooken a HIV dna pcr test at 18 days and a 46 also a 4 week and 6 week duo test and a 8 week rapid test am I ok?
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. It is very sensisitive for detecting the presence of certain bacteria and is also used in doing other ...Read more

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). Discuss a plan with your doctor to see what the cause is (that will determine what you do about it); you will probably be referred to an endocrinologist. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
HSV 1+2 Serum test resut- 1.77 & HSV Type 1+2 PCR DNA result Negative. Can't understand the difference between two results.
Need details: PCR will detect herpes virus if present on the skin. If no virus is shedding at the time, then it shows negative. But herpes is present in a dormant form in a nerve and is detected by noting serum antibodies. Antibodies are specific immunity which contain the virus but fail to reach inside a nerve. When the virus sometimes comes out onto the skin it can be detected by PCR. When the virus is only i ...Read more

How many types of HIV are there?I did HIV DNA PCR for HIV 1 only I'm afraid If I'm infected by other types.
HIV risks: There are two major strains of HIV in the world - HIV-1 and HIV-2. Almost all infections are HIV-1 unless you live in W. Africa where there is some HIV-2. If your test was negative then that is great. You should still be careful though because HIV infection requires life long medication to manage it. Probably best to get follow up with your doc. There are lots of ways to have safe sex-b careful ...Read more
Is it possible to still carry chlamadyia infection despite a negative result in PCR Dna test??(symptoms persist)
Very unlikely: The chlamydia DNA tests are very accurate; a negative result is good evidence the infection is gone. Chlamydia symptoms in women (e.g. vaginal discharge, painful urination, etc) are nonspecific, i.e. same symptoms caused by many different conditions. Return to your doctor or clinic to evaluate the cause and treatment of your continuing symptoms. Probably it isn't chlamydia. Good luck. ...Read more
Do HIV 1 and HIV 2 DNA differ form each other?and is there seperated DNA PCR tests for each or one is enough to catch both?
Ok the HIV RNA PCR will detect both hiv1and2 but what about HIV DNA pcr?would this detect both types even if it was designed for hiv1 only?
HIV: This is an RNA virus. It is called a retrovirus because when it enters a cell to create infection it is converted to DNA and intercalated into the cell's nuclear structure. The tests do not measure HIV DNA. You seem anxious over the possibility that you have HIV infection and you might want to chat with a therapist and stop having unprotected sex. ...Read more
A viral illness caused by parvovirus, also known as Erthema Infectiosum. It starts with a "slapped cheek" rash on cheeks and a flat red spotted rash, mostly on the arms and upper legs. Once the rash appears, you are no longer contagious. It can be harmful to an unborn baby, if mom has never had it. Adults can get joint swelling and pain. You only get it ...Read more
