I had unprotected sex with woman born with hiv 4 or 5 times on July 31st. 4 days later she told me she was born with hiv. I went to the hospital that same day and got pep and took it for a month. I stopped taking it on September 9th.
I got a rapid antibody test on October 4th and was negative. I also a hiv test on October 8th. I think it was a combo test but I'm not sure. The hiv counseler told me it was a antibody test but the paper from the lab says HIV1 AG HIV 1/2 AB
Can someone tell me if it's a combo test or antibody test? Would the medicine I was taking effect cause a false negative on my test? I also wanted to know should I be less worried cause I been stressed and losing sleep over this and everything. The counseler said I'm ok and that I don't need further testing but I still feel nervous cause the internet says 3 months
I techinally got tested 9 weeks and 6 days after exposure but I guess that's the same as 10 weeks right? Can pep cause false negativesView Thread
Hey I'm back. I got tested October 23 which is 12 weeks from the exposure and it was negative. I had a rapid antibody test, a standard antibody test and I also had am acute hiv test which I assume is the hiv viral rna test. They was all negative. I also got another rapid antibody test on October 30th. That was negative too. Can I stop being stress and put this behind me now? Is it finally over or do I need further testingView Thread
Are you sure it wasn't a combo test too? What do the letters AG Stand for?
She told me she on medication and that her viral load is undetectable. I just don't know whether to believe her cause I feel so nervous and scared right now. What the chances of me getting it if she is telling the truth?
Do you think I should wait till October 31st to get tested since the days
And her had sex was July 31st? That would be 13 weeks. Or do you think I should go the week of October 21st since that will be 12 weeks
I did test negative at 10 weeks. Is that reassuring? What's the chances my test will be negative on my next test? Please help meView Thread
I had unprotected sex with a girl 4 or 5 times on July 31st. She confessed 4 days later she was born with hiv. I went to the hospital after she told me and they gave me pep.
I stopped taking the pep on September 9th and went to get a hiv rapid antibody test on September 11th. It was negative. Would the meds I was taking effect my results from being negative or positive? I am really worried and stressed about this and been losing sleep since this happened
