How conclusive are oraquicks after 4 months after exposure? - Online Doctor Chats
I took two oraquicks both after 4 months after exposure. How conclusive is this?
This was after a onetime encounter with a sex worker using a condom and penetration for only 6 seconds back in Oct. 2013.

How can I help?
so in october 2013 i had 6 seconds of penetrable sex with a sex worker with a condom. I felt vaginal fluid on my thigh and finished covered with a condom
I have taken 2 oraquicks and received negative results in february and no sex since october
how likely is it i have hiv
There is not much of chance that you got infected
Since you used protection and the secretion were on the thigh
what about oraquick?
It has been 5 months
yes 5 months
two negative results how convincing should that be for me
can you give me a percentage?
are you familiar with oraquick?
It is done at home
right i received 2 negative results this month
Keeping in mind your negligible exposure and two negative tests
The percentage should be more than 99%
ok that helps
It is quite reassuring
and since there was a risk it cant be 100% until i get blood work?
The only issue is that you are still in window period
Yes they do
and since its been close to 5 months for me
If I was in your shoes, I would not worry and repeat the test at 1 year
what sort of test do you recommend?
But if you are really worried then you can go for dna-pcr test
Do you have a question here?
I should ask for the dan-pcr test?
Besides that my question has been answered
Yes you may
if you are worried
But like you say I shouldnt be worried
HIV is unlikely
perpes can be tested with serology blood tests
these tests can be prescribed by your family physician
yes i've had blood drawn and will get results next week
I need to get back to work. Thanks for your time.
I would not be worried much about HIV
what are herpes transmission rates ? 4% per year?
If the woman had herpes then the chances of transmission are high
even with no symptoms?
Sometimes the virus may be latent and may not have symptoms
Yes the rates are very low
ok im signing off. thanks!
Thanks for consulting
