Which test at 32 days?
      #271224 - 03/19/13 09:03 AM

What is the difference between HIV EARLY SCREEN and HIV DNA DETECTOR, QUALITATIVE. I had low risk protected sex 32 days ago, wanted to have some test for peace of mind, when I called the diagnostic center they suggest both of these test. Just wanted to know how accurate are these at 32days post exposure.

Is there nay other test I should be looking at?

Thanks.

Neither of these tests are extremely accurate at 32 days.

You are now in overkill mode over a NON-risk situation. You had protected sex. The condom did not fail. Tell me are you going to test the results of this test or are you going to worry that it was just too soon to test? Best to wait to at least 6 weeks and then get tested. Those results will be over 95% accurate and a final test at 3 months will be conclusive.

Thank you crabman for your reply.

I am really worried, I have a very lucky life and this can bring it all down, I don't want this to happen and I hope all is well. I was at mistake and hope god forgives me for cheating, even though it was a one time incident it was still a mistake and I regret a lot.

From yesterday I have been feeling like a sore throat, its on the upper roof of the mouth near the throat, not too much pain and no problem in swallowing food or drinking, but there is some pain and I had little yellow mucus in the morning which means some infection. I also feel feverish, but temperature is still normal. Hope all is well.

It is now 32 days, I don't know how I will stand till 90 days.

Thanks.
