Thanks for writing to us,
Yes, the best test to identify HIV on early stage is HIV PCR (POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION).
It is most accurate and give the results of status earlier than any other test.
Do not panic ,know your status first and then proceed as per results.
Take care of health.
you have no way to wait for 6 weeks. instead you can go for testing your partner if she wills. till you come negative abstain from your sexual relation to wife. and never take these risks again...you seems educated person....
why yu guys go for multiple sexual partners, cant you be loyal to your wife. atleast understand the risk if the partner is unknown if the partner has any disease. if you do sex also use condoms and do. young age more desires but end up in trouble.
If she is living with HIV, then you are at risk. test comes positive only after 6-12 weeks. you should abstain from such relationship (with your wife also) for said period if possible or go for safe practices (safe sex, no blood donation) till 3 months when you will get a test result NEGATIVE.
I read in the paper that ther eis new method of doing HIV test. In this it was given that you can detect the HIV as early as possible. So contact near by hospital to know if any thing else is available
yes u have to wait...the test is called as DNA PCR....there is no test in the entire world...which will give u the result before this..this is my self experiance..and that too done only in few hospitals and very costly affair...
i have a few brown spots on my body (chest and lower back) that I haven t noticed before. I am worried about HIV, as I had a high-risk sexual encounter ( a professional sex-worker woman who I found out is likely positive for HIV, syphilis, and herpes) on July 17, 5 weeks ago. I took an Oraquick antibody test after 3 weeks which was negative, and more significantly I hope, a DNA PCR HIV early detection test a couple days after. Both were negative. I did get the flu early August, during which I developed a case of peripheral neuropathy (hands, feet, left cheek), which haven t completely gone away to this day. I am also fatigued all the time, regardless of the amount of sleep I have had. I will test again for HIV next Tuesday, which will be the 6-week mark. What could I have?
Dear Sir I put my mouth on the vagina of a prostitute,although nothing went wrong but i am now confused that it has not given me HIV infection.I don t know whether she was HIV +tive or-tive.I also underwent a BLood test after 9 weeks of this intercourse.The blood test was EIA test and result was Non Reactve.But still i am not satisfied because i read on a website that atleast 3 months should have passed from the date of infection for the test to give right results.MAy be i am getting a little paranoid about all this.IT has now been 75 days since that incident.Can you please help me with some test which can give me a confirmed result now so that i am no more worried. Pls help
Hello Doctor, I have few questions for you. I have recently shifted to Africa and working here. Around 20 days back I had a sex with my work colleague. I used condom for the sex and it did not break or burst. After the sex I slept naked on the same bed where we had sex. After 30 mins or so I woke up to drink water and I saw that the bed was wet with some liquid and I am sure that was the vaginal fluid of my colleague. I am not sure whether my penis touched that. Then I got scared and asked my colleague about her HIV status and asked her to check it the next day. The result came negative. I hope the test was done correctly. What are my chances of getting infected in this scenario? Can my colleague be in window period of HIV? And yes then what are my chances of getting the infection? Also I want to ask you about another indecent which happened a week before this sexual activity. I had visited a massage parlor and slept naked on the bed. I could not see whether that bed had any semen of any other customers as it was dark there. After few moments one lady came and massaged me with oil all over the body. The place did not look like people doing sexual activities there but can’t trust. What are my chances of getting an infection on sleeping onto that bed? While doing the massage the hand of that lady touched my tip of my penis 2-3 times for a second. My penis was not erect and I have a foreskin. What are my chances of getting the infection? I hope that the lady did not have any cuts on her hands. What should I do now in all the cases? Should I go for HIV tests? If yes then what is the earliest time I can for test and which test? Please answer me clearly and tell me what are the chances of getting the infection in all the three cases. Please reply at the earliest.
Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
