I just had polymerase chain reaction (pcr) HIV test negative at 4 weeks 6 days, almost 5 weeks?

Probably free. There are rare cases in which antibody testing has remained negative for several months, but you probably do not have hiv. If you are in a state of anxiety over this and can afford it, a PCR for the presence of viral RNA in your blood will solve this definitively.

HAD protected sex one time with high risk woman. I took COMBO HIV TEST@26 DAYS AND RNA PCR @ 11 DAYS. BOTH CAME BACK NEG. DO I need retesting after 3 months? I have been having headaches, feeling disoriented, and sweating a bit. Is this anxiety?

Yes to be certain. if you were protected that the chances of transmission should be very low. If you want to be absolutely positive you should repeat it in 3-6 months. I really cannot say about the headaches, feeling disoriented and sweating. i do not know your history. i would advise you to see your doctor. Read more...
Test is 95% reliable. at 4 weeks, but due to the fact that some people may have delayed antibody response, to get 99+% accuracy, a repeat test should be done at 12 weeks. Headaches, disorientation and sweating would NOT be due to HIV at this stage, so you need to find a different reason. Anxiety may be one of them. Read more...

Should I spend more money on a 7 month FDA PCR HIV test if I have a negative one already at 4 months? I have also negative AB/AG at 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 months.

No, not unless... No extra testing is needed, after a reliable negative test, unless a person is having new exposures to HIV-positive partners... but that should not happen, meaning a person must learn from his past. He should not be recurrently exposed to HIV, and should then fall under the guidelines for the general population, with regards to HIV screening for the community population. Read more...

Aches 1year. 3hiv rapid test oraquick, unigold, clearview all negative after 6 months. 1st md said no more test. 2nd md said PCR test. More HIV test?

HIV is Hard to Get. You do not have hiv. Why in the heck would you keep testing? Why would you worry like you are. Aches can be signs of a million problems, not hiv. Aches are not in any way diagnostic for HIV infection. Read more...

A friend had hiv test at 6 months last exposure negative, now he had a pos for hiv-2 at 7 months. He also did a pcr at 4 months. Can it be false positive?

Probably false pos. HIV-2 is very rare outslide the area of west Africa where it originated (Cameroon), although I don't know about Albania for sure. The PCR should have picked up HIV-2 as well as HIV-1. So your freind's HIV-2 test probably is false positive. He should see an infectious diseases or HIV expert to sort it out. Read more...

I sex with unknown girl dec-2013, hiv test at 2, 5, 13, 15, 27, 30, 40, 80 weeks all negative. (Test both pcr and antibody).Am I suffering syst infect?

For sure not HIV. I don't understand what you mean by "systemic infection", but you don't have HIV. You have been seriously overtested for HIV and there is no chance you have it. And a single episode of unprotected sex with an "unknown" heterosexual partner is always low risk for HIV anyway. Stop testing and see a doctor. Read more...
