Thanks for writing in.

Ive gone through your sexual history and symptoms.
At present I dont think you have any real risk of HIV.

Combo test you have undergone is very much reliable and you can be sure of your negative status.Also HIV wont manifest so early.In my opinion it is more or less psychological than physical symptoms.Antibiotics cannot influence HIV test as the test is done for viral proteins and antibiotics cant act on them.

You do not need any further testing immediately.If you still want to be more sure about negative test you can undergo HIV RNA PCR test .This test is most accurate test available.

To reassure you once again ,HIV combo is very reliable and risk of HIV is nil or very minimal in your case.

Hope this helps.

I will be available for follow up.

Hi Dr, Thanks so much for your reply. I'm much more relief now. There is still some questions i might still want to ask:

1) Combo Test at 17 days onwards can be cleared that all my previous sexual activity on oct,sep,aug is hiv negative?
2) How earlier combo test can detect the antigen and when the antigen disapear antibodies will come out immediately?

Thanks DR.

Hi again,

To answer your questions
1) Negative combo test clears your previous sexual activity.
2)Combo test can detect HIV1 as early as 14 days.Once the antigen disappear the antibody can be detected in blood.A retest at 3 mo will confirm the negative results.

Hope this helps.
