Hiv antibodies appear 6 to 12 weeks after getting the disease.In rare cases upto 6 months.Blood tests before 3 months can give unclear results. It is advised that you get a blood test after 3 months of the intercourse

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

hi doctor I have a question about my hiv test results. I m a female and sometime ago I had a possible exposure of giving protected oral sex and unprotected handjob and boobjob to my boyfriend of unknown status. I got semen on my hand and i had a little paper cut on my hand. I got freaked out and I tested 17 days later and it came back negative. later on I traveled to a third world country (iran) and got tested there again and this time it was 77 days after exposure. i didn t know what type of test generation they use and I wanted to get it over with so I tested for both hiv 1/2/o Abs(ELI) and p24 Ag(ECL) seperately. they both came back negative but my concern is the index value they gave me for my p24 ag which was 0.449 and in front of it it said non reactive my question is: Is my index (0.449) too high for an uninfected person? should i be worrying about this number and does it mean anything? I remember that on the day i got tested my blood looked really thick and dark and the test was done ECL..could that be the reason of my high index?
