Can i do PCR test for HIV, Hepatitis , HPV 18,16,12 after 32 days of risk exposure? The Result will be accurate and reliable? Peace of mind?
Yes and no: AT 32 days, you should not have a PCR test for HIV, only the standard antigen-antibody test (4th generation). It will be conclusive. Its too early for hepatitis, though; wait until 6 weeks (although hepatitis is so rare after any single exposure that most experts don't recommend testing at all). Don't waste money on HPV testing; it takes several months to show up, and everybody gets HPV anyway. ...Read more

Taken full course of anti rabies vaccine last month again exposure and received 4 doses of anti rabies vaccine exposure again then am i safe rabies?
Depends: on whether you received rabies immune globulin or the vaccine or both, which I assume was the case. Immune globulin offers temporary protection after exposure. The vaccine induces your own antibody production. Once you have received the vaccine, you will no longer be given the immune globulin after exposure but will be given the vaccine after exposure. In other words, each exposure requires vaccine administration but only the first requires immune globulin.http://www.cdc.gov/rabies/medical_care/ ...Read more

HIV negative via Elisa and rna 20 years after any possible exposure but having symptoms of late stage HIV. Weight loss and fatigue and low testostero?
Not HIV: The tests for HIV are among the most accurate diagnostic tests ever developed, for any medical condition. Therefore, test results always overrule symptoms, exposure history, or anything else. And of course weight loss, fatigue, etc are common to innumerable medical conditions besides HIV/AIDS (and HIV doesn't cause low testoserone). Your test results prove HIV is not the cause of these problems. ...Read more
