Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX

Thanks for posting your query.

You are absolutely safe and you need no further test to rule the possibility of HIV.
The HIV rapid tests (antibody detection test) negative after 3 moths of the high risk activity itself is conclusive unless you are on any immuno-suppressive drugs like steroids.
Your test shows negative result after 7 months is most conclusive that you are free from HIV infection and no more test is required further.
Wish you a happy day.

HI sir thanks for your reply & i need some clarification on these, some time i am realizing my mistakes & its makes me stress all the time, here the doctor said that i have 74.9 neutrophils & Lymphocytes are 19 % is it i the normal range..

Hi,
Welcome back.
We cannot say that your differential count of white blood corpuscles is normal. Neutrophil count is a bit high whereas the Lymphocytes are low. But that does not mean that could be due to HIV. Neutrophils increased with some recent and short term infections during which time the lymphocyte percentage will go down. It will be alright after sometime. Nothing to worry.
If you followup with your physician he will do the needful to you.

Dear Sir,

Now i am attaching my medical report (Throat infection & CBC)& i also i have recently observed that i have small white pin type patches on my foreskin inside, so pls suggest whether its an indication for Genital herpes..

Hi,
Welcome back.

As I have mentioned previously, your blood report are not anything serious and to be worried. Just ignore and repeat the same after 2 months.
As far as the picture sent by you, it is not a case of Genital Herpes. It is a mild inflammation of the head of penis either be due to some allergy or irritation.
If your sex partner is having some yeast infection, you my likely to have such lesion due to infection or allergy or may be due to allergic to condom, soap or any applications.
Consult you physician, he will cure you easily.
Get well soon.

Hi,
Welcome back.

There is no more possibility of HIV infection for you with this past exposure.
The presence of HSV IgG antibodies have nothing to do with HIV.
HSV Ig G positive means that you had come across this infection and not necessarily it is being active or that you are having the HSV infection. So nothing to worry.

Hi,

Definitely you are not having HIV. With regards to your treatment for HSV, it is up to your physician to decide.
Wish you a happy time ahead.

Hi,
Welcome back.
As I already mentioned that HSV IgG positive indicating the past infection only. You might not have an active HSV infection. Nothing to worry.
The picture showed a mild inflammation of Glans penis. That is not a Herpetic lesion. Consult your physician and he/she will help you to cure you.
