History - Unprotected Contact ( High Risk Exposure ) (
Regarding HIV and STDs
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Unprotected sex is a high risk for transmission of STDs including HIV. Your HIV 1&2 RNA PCR at 3 weeks is highly sensitive and makes it unlikely, however, it is not considered a diagnostic test. Therefore I would suggest a follow up test for anti-HIV antibody at 12 weeks for a conclusive result. Apart from that I would suggest screening for other STDs like Syphilis with VDRL as well as for Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV 1&2) with HerpeSelect at 12 weeks. These are blood tests. For other STDs like Gonorrhoea and Chlamydia I would suggest a Urine Spot test which is highly sensitive and specific and therefore recommended. Blood test for chlamydia is not routinely used as a diagnostic test.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance
Oral antibiotics won't hamper screening test results at 12 weeks. You need to contact your General Practitioner for him/her to refer you to a lab for tests.
