Doctor :   Hi
User :   hello doctor
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   i have posted my query below
User :   Hi doctor, I had sex with a partner two weeks back , who is married.This was the first time i had sex and i am not sure i used condomn properly. I became very much depressed after that and i started getting body pains and lethargy . She went for an Elisa test just before we had intercourse and the result was negative...The 11 th day after the incident i went for P24 antigen as well as VDR (TPHA) test . THe results are negative.Do i have the risk of getting HIV/ any other std?I am paranoid on this. I also started getting small black/white rashes on my body . I went to a skin doctor , he said these are not related to std's .I am totally confused.Please help me .
Doctor :   The skin rashes that you have as your doctor's mentioned may not be related to the STD's
User :   but doctor am i safe of hiv as well as other stds?
User :   she took elisa 2 days before the incident
User :   and it was negative
Doctor :   Ok
User :   she dint have the relation for past 5 months
User :   also my p24 antigen test on 11 th day will be accurate?
User :   since i was negative on that
User :   and my vdr test can be accurate on 11th day??
Doctor :   The chance of you getting HIV is very remote.
User :   since i saw in net that p24 can be taken after 1 week
Doctor :   Due to the fact that she is proved negative by the test.
User :   what about other std's doctor?
Doctor :   It is almost impossible that you could get the infection now.
Doctor :   The chances of other STD's varies.
User :   i am very much depressed on this doctor...
User :   my skin doctor said that the rashes which i get are not related to std's
User :   do the vdr test and p24 antigen test taken on 11 th day be accurate doctor?
Doctor :   Since you do not have any symptoms of genital infections, it means that you are not infective.
User :   but what about the black tiny dots which i am getting on my body doctor..they are very very tiny
User :   also i am getting white spots on few parts of body
Doctor :   Most doctor's advice for other STD's - such as syphilis, gonorrhea, herpes and others, if you develop symptoms.
User :   my skin doctor asked me to ignore the dots doctor
User :   you dint answer regarding my tests doctor??
User :   can it be accurate ???
Doctor :   Any test's done have its sensitivity and specificity markers.
Doctor :   As far as HIV goes,
Doctor :   These markers are dependent on the time of testing.
User :   i saw in net that p24 will detect antibodies between 1 week and 3 weeks to 4 weeks doctor
User :   it was given in this site
User :   so only i took the test on 11 th day doctor
Doctor :   Most doctor suggest that these test are to be done between 1-3 weeks following exposure.
Doctor :   The reliability period is the max when done at the 2nd week.
Doctor :   So, if your tests done at 11th day(that is close to 2 weeks)
User :   so what is the best thing for me to do doctor...can i be free since her elisa test came back negative
Doctor :   was negative, then you need not worry.
User :   thanks doctor
Doctor :   But before you could think of testing HIV further,
Doctor :   I would like to give you some more facts on HIV
User :   sure doctor
Doctor :   I think we have less time to further discuss.
User :   yeah doctor
Doctor :   You may have to recharge to continue the discussion.
Doctor :   Are you there?
