Brief Answer:
No infection...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I will take the results of the tests as conclusive. Further you report that the sexual exposure was protected. I would not be worried about infections - HIV and hepatitis in this case.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any more help.

Brief Answer:
Consider VDRL test...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I apologize for the late reply. I was away from internet for couple of days.

As per your description the encounter was protected at most times except in the end where you were unsure. This episode was 4 months ago and you seem to be alright since then. Therefore I don't think you were exposed to any kind of infectious threat including HIV and you are safe. If there is a test that could be done is a test to rule out syphillis. I will suggest VDRL as a screening test. If VDRL is negative, you don't need any more tests.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Hi Doctor, I have active HCV-2b contracted during my 20 year urban EMS career (no other high risk factors or behaviors). I was dx. 1/21/2000 & have been unsuccessfully tx x3 with different variations of Interferon with Ribavirin. My last tx. was stopped due to non-response in 2004. As of 12/2011 I have been dx with Addison's Disease. I only have disability coverage for HCV issues. I have resd that HCV therapy can cause Addison's. Is this at all plausible? Thank you, Mary

I treated for HCV in 2005 and achieved undetectable. However, the last several months I've been experiencing daily low-grade fevers, sweating (I'm past menopause) and the last couple of weeks, headaches. I've been in nursing homes and hospitals caring for my mother and have picked up what my doctor diagnosed as staff infection exhibited by sores on my right arm. I've also been feeling lightheaded. My doctor found nodes on my thyroid. Sound like a mess, right? What could be the problem, please.
