3.5 elisa, PCR hiv1, Scared pos
      #176782 - 02/23/06 07:33 PM

Hello Friends,

I was exposed to pos+ woman, vag intercourse.
no condom, 0.5hrs.
Tested neg 3.5 mths elisa 3rd generation, and neg hiv1 pcr
both tests done by A.I.M. health labs.
I had the symptoms of sweats, weight loss, and white tonge with ulcerations. I was extremely stressed since the first week. My wife also was negative at 11 weeks in an Elisa test at a different lab. I am having a constant slight headache for the past week, and my wife shows what appears k.s. on her back, small pea size raised bumps, 3 or 4.
Are 3 month tests reliable? Why would both of us test neg unless the only valid test is 6 months or we have an undetectable hiv strain.
What should I do. please help.
I have three kids and believe one of them is now infected, I saw he had cottage cheese thrush type in his tongue and
rash on his back also, as I also did in the first month.
All stds were negative.
Do 97% really seroconvert in 3 months?
What can you guys tell me please. Thank you and god bless you all.

You got tested at AIM? They know about as much as anyone does about testing. They use DNA/PCR and ELISA plus any other test you need. They are responsible for the Porn Industry. Now, why the heck are you worring about your test. You are NEG. You nor you wife have HIV infection. Your symptoms are all due to STRESS!!! Now get over it and have a good life

you are negative, but I believe you need a psicologist.
Please be sure , you are negative .. today window period is defined at average 21 days ( 12 to 41 days). No documented seroconversion at all ( coming from sex exposure) at more than 10 weeks. Late seroconversions documented on people with co infection, but specially infected with needles and taking PEP the day after. You are negative, do you want a bet?

regards from india

HIV is a hard virus to transmit, moreso from a female to a male. The risk of acquiring HIV from an unprotected sexual encounter with a confirmed HIV positive individual would be around 0.1 to 0.2 percent per episode.

Your 3.5 week tests are encouraging, however it is not definitive. You need to test at 12 weeks for an definitive result.

Diagnosis based on symptoms experienced is incorrect.


Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Love Ravi
