Can a p24 antigen assay test rule out HIV?
I am really doing good but some time anxiety trigger which is not like how it was occupied whole my day ..
I knew it's no risk activity and also u confirmed too but guilty was playing all.
Sorry to tell you due to my panic attach again I went to one more HIV 1&2 and p24 test on exactly 45th day where it was non reactive as expected but this time index value was 0.12 as you told I should not worry about this values.. Yes Dr taken the test again bec people who connected with me.. I really would like to have one audio consultantion with you but I think there is no option available in this app but let me know
In fact ,I came to know about you through Poz forum where in one post XXXXXXX guy mentioned about you.
You are free from HIV 1 infection.
Welcome once again.
The range in the Index value of any test is not important. It does not reflect the exact activity of the body.
Whether the value is below the cut off for the test or above the cut off mark. That is the thing we need to note.
Repeating the test is waste of money. Not to worry.If you want to have further test, then you can have it after 12 weeks after the risky activity which can rule out the rarest possibility of HIV 2 infection also.
I am almost came out from this incident but I did read enough /more than enough information in internet whisk sometime attack me mentally. I am not willing to further test and whenever I fell something I read ur post and calm down. thanks for supporting Dr. I would like to have one audio consultantion with u but don't know how I can connect. may be 10 min call. thanks Dr
You are safe.
Not to worry. You are quite safe.
Usually I don't encourage anybody to have consultation over phone.
I feel it is wasting of time.
What you want to convey may differ what I understood. So guidance will not be appropriate. If you want to meet me, come to XXXXXXX Tamilnadu, XXXXXXX
Possibility of HIV 2 is less than 0.5%. That too with fingering still less.
As a doctor, I will advise you to wait for 12 weeks and repeat another test to rule out rarest and remote possibility of HIV2 (practically very much unlikely), before resuming sexual relationship with your wife. Practically I can advise you to proceed, but theoretically we had not ruled out HIV 2.Till then you can have a protected exposure with your wife. Hope you would have understood.
Your HIV 2 risk still remains very negligible only.
Index value has nothing to do with.
If I will be in your position, I will not mind about this least and negligible possibility and resume my sexual life.
But as doctor, I can just advise you to wait till the completion of 12 weeks, as a theoretical possibility is there.
