Brief Answer:
No need to go for any further test as you are free from HIV so don't worry.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

First of all, the risk of transmission of HIV from single exposure to oral sex is very very low as compared to vaginal or anal sex so no need to worry so much.

Second, your 3rd generation ELISA and Tri-dot both are negative after 100 days of exposure than you are absolutely free from HIV because both these tests are confirmatory after 3 months as the window period for HIV varies from 15 days to 3 months.

Lastly, your VDRL test is also negative that means you are free from syphilis too. So don't get so depressed and remove the fear of getting HIV from your mind. Be relaxed and move ahead in your life happily.

Thank You

Brief Answer:
Don't get so depressed from your friends talk as you are risk free from HIV

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

The value for ELISA does not carry much significance because any value below one is considered as non-reactive so don't take so much tension of your friends talk.

At present you have no symptoms also so be relaxed and concentrate in life as you are free from HIV. As your friend I will also advice you to stay away from unsafe sexual practices in future to avoid the risk of HIV and other STDs.

Thank You

Ok so I had to get tested for VDRL and TPHA, but I ve only been tested for VDRL for now and it came back non-reactive so are there chances that TPHA could come back reactive? I don t really understand the terms some guidance would be much appreciated. I ve kissed three guys, but there was only one sexual partner and I haven t been with him or anyone for almost 6,7 years and VDRL came back non-reactive as well. Kindly advice about TPHA. Should I be worried? Thank you in advance!
