Expsosure From Korean Sex Worker
      #37655 - 07/30/02 07:32 PM

Well I had a exposure to a Korean Sex worker, I went to an std clinic they tested me for everything. I am still worried about HIV and a possible subtype that is not picked up by standard elisa's. I tested for HIV 1/2 at 3 and 6 months and followed up again at 8 months. I also had a RNA-PCR done at 3 months. They are not interested in testing me anymore. I am still scared, because of symptoms, and fear giving it to somebody else if I am truely infected. Do standard antibody tests pick up subtypes in Korea, this exposure happened in colorado and the korean women spoke little english, but had just recently moved to colorado i think, she may have been menstating when we had sex and oral. Should I move on or is there some other test I can take thanks Brian
