User :   hello
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   how can i help u ?
User :   Sir hope u remember me i discussed with you my two incidentys
Doctor :   sorry, there are no prior history in your records
Doctor :   can u just give me a brief overview in one or 2 sentances
Doctor :   Yes I am
User :   i shared with u my two incidents one was blood drop into condom during vagainal sex and stool touch on penis during anal sex.
Doctor :   ok
User :   i had told u that i did a hiv test post 10 weeks after first incident and 8 weeks after second one test for both with heb b test.both non reactive
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   good
User :   now i did another test after 3.5 month of first incident and 89 days after second.one test for both non reactive.
Doctor :   in that case, you dont have any infection
Doctor :   you dont need to worry
User :   since i was very worried the lab head said we will do two test for you.
Doctor :   ok
User :   one would be rapid test which takes 20 min and then elsia for antibodies which takes 3 hrs.
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   since both tests were negative, there is no HIV infection in your case
User :   they did rapid test when i was there and it was non-reactive.after that the doctor said u can relex and we will do the next test.
Doctor :   yeah, ok
User :   my query is for my anxiety only sir.
Doctor :   ok
User :   if they have done only one test that is rapid one is that conclusive after 89 days.Pls answer
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   it is conclusive
User :   some doctors said when i did test after 10 weeks rapid tests are not conformatory till 13 weeks.they are for screeening only.That is why i did both but i want to know if the first was conclusive and do i need to restart after 6 months or no.
Doctor :   you need not worry
User :   secondly i tested heb b after 2 months non-reactive do i need to test that as well.
User :   thank you sir.
Doctor :   as the ELISA and the rapid tests are both done with blood samples,
Doctor :   they are conclusive
Doctor :   and no need to test further
Doctor :   no need to test for Hep B either
User :   sir some people say elisa rapid is not conformatory as this was also rapid hiv1 hiv2 for antibodies.
Doctor :   if done on blood samples, there is nothing to worry about
Doctor :   if done on saliva, or urine , then the sensitivity is less
User :   sir one more thing since i did not had sex for 3 months with anybody and did not masterbate also much.i observed my siemen count after ejuclation has reduced.
User :   is this a disease or something to worry about.
Doctor :   no
Doctor :   this is nothing to worry about,
User :   then how will it come to normal sir
Doctor :   you mean ur sperm count ?
User :   yes sir
Doctor :   sperm count has nothing to do with this infection or the testing or with masturbation
Doctor :   what is the counts as given in the reports ?
User :   i did not test sir.It is my personal observation.
Doctor :   that is not right way
Doctor :   u need not worry, mostly it is probably all stress and anxiety
Doctor :   just relax
Doctor :   and overtime, everything will get back to normal
User :   yes i do agree i was nearly dieing of anxiety
Doctor :   if u still have doubts, get a semen analysis , for sperm counts,
Doctor :   that will clear all ur doubts
User :   sir if screen goes off pls wait till i recharge
Doctor :   ok
User :   hi sir
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   welcome back
User :   thanks
User :   actually sir why i asked u about the hiv test the second one is that.It was non-reactive elisa test for hiv1 hiv2 antibodies.But they did not put the reference values.It was done at columbia asia hospital gurgaon.When i asked them the lab head who is a senior pathologist said.These values create confusion and we dont pust value incase of non-reacive
User :   that thing created some confuson in my mind.That is why i wanted to ask you if that rapid test was conclusive.
User :   sir are you there
Doctor :   Sorry, there was a network error
User :   ok no issues
Doctor :   please note that, if antibodies are found , it is positive
Doctor :   if not, it is a negative test , as in your case
Doctor :   both rapid tests and ELISA, work on the same principle, to detect HIV antibodies
Doctor :   since both the ELISA, and the Rapid test assay are negative, there is no need to worry,
User :   sir as i have told u i dont have any symptoms of std.and i had urine test 4 times in first month all with pus cells 2-4 initally and then 1-2 in last test.Do i need to do test for sypills or for any std.kindly advice.
