User rating for this question
Doctor I was in Antwerp Belgium on 21 October and ended up with a prostitute. She looked clean and put on a condom on my penis as the very first thing. She then gave me a quick oral erection with the condom on and we had 3-4 mins of protected vaginal sex. On day 6 I had a p24 combo HIV 1&2 test, vdrl, hep c and unrobe sample, all negative. On day 14 I again did the p24 HIV 1&2 combo test again negative. On day 15 I did the RNA PCR HIV 1 test, also came negative. What do you suggest. I quite scared.

Brief Answer: repeat the test just once Detailed Answer: Hello, I have read your query. You are almost negative for HIV. However, I suggest you to repeat the P24 test or the RNA PCR Test just once again after 21 days. Also, you can do an ELISA HIV antibody test after 6 months. If this test is negative too, then there is nothing to worry at all. Even now, you are negative for HIV. I am telling you these further tests to be doubly sure of your status. There is no need to be scared. Please relax. Hope this helps you. Regards,

Hello doctor, As you had advised, I went ahead and had a p24 CMIA AG+AB test on the 28th day, the index value came out as 0.19, non reactive, hence negative. With this test also done do you recommend any further testing. I also had a vdrl(RPR) test done on the same day and the result was negative. Can I move on with my life now or should o do some additional tests? I have a wife and a 1.5 Yr old child.
