I tested negative for hep b antigen after 100 days french kiss exposure and positive for antibody 70 QN due vaccination baby is it conclusive thanks?
No risk, no worries: You are immune to hepatitis B virus (HBV) due to being vaccinated. With without vaccination, kissing rarely if ever transmits HBV so you weren't at risk anyway. And your negative HBsAg test proves you weren't infected. Your repeated questions show you're irrationally obsessed with this. Consider counseling. (Apologies if you're not same as previous questions.) ...Read more
Tested positive on the ELISA test for hsv2, a month later tested negative via western blot 2 years after possible exposure . Which test to believe?
Both!: ELISA is very sensitive and sometimes gives a false positive. Interfering substances in serum can make the test look positive. On the other hand, Western Blot is very specific. It does not light up unless you really have antibodies to HSV. So, both tests were "right" , but the Western blot indicates that you do not have the antibody to HSV and have not been exposed. ...Read more
A bit too early: The exact time for reliable chlamydia testing by NAAT isn't certain, but 3 days probably is a bit early. A negative result would be somewhat reassuring, but probably not conclusive. It would be safer to wait until 5 days or so, unless there is some urgency (e.g. if you have abdominal pain or other symptoms of a complication like PID). ...Read more
How accurate are IGG blood test for herpes for person never having an outbreak? Partner tested positive for hsv2.
It depends...: The HSV IgG blood tests are good but not perfect. With the most common test (HerpeSelect®), strong positive (HSV2 index 3.5 or more) is proof of infection, regardless of symptoms. Negative (under 0.9) also is conclusive. Index >1.1 is officially positive, but many results 1.1-3.5 are false. Other IgG tests less well studied. Such uncertainties are why HSV blood tests often are controversial. ...Read more

STD screening: It depends on the tests. The routine most common tests would be: Syphilis: six weeks after exposure unless a visible sore appears sooner. There are three common Hepatitis viruses.

Is HIV antibodies test conclusive at 3 months after exposure?and is DNA PCR test conclusive after 45 days after exposure?
HIV Infection: Technically speaking PCR is conclusive at the time of infection. The moment HIV enters the human blood stream it explodes. Viral tires go into the multiple millions. So testing by PCR would easily catch this. The problem is..it is not intended to be used as a screening test due to the cost. So..the antibody test at 3 months is good..but 6 months out is needed to be conclusive in my opinion. ...Read more

HTLV-1 exposure: ...is predominantly from mother to child (typically through breastfeeding), sexual intercourse, and blood contact, including the transfusion of infected cellular products or sharing of needles and syringes.
