    Possible exposure ?

    About over a year ago I may have been exposed to hiv. I performed unprotected oral sex on a girl for about 5 minutes at most. Never had any issues or symptoms before but now may have thrush and basically fatigue. But after I ate her out I started to have protected sex and after a few minutes noticed blood on the condom and stopped immediately. Am I at risk of having caught hiv?

    I am nervous I may have been exposed to HIV tonight through unprotected oral sex, very brief unprotected anal sex, followed by protected anal sex. He did not ejaculate at all, but possibly pre ejaculation. He is uncircumcised, and 41 years old. He told me afterwards he is HIV Positive Undetectable. Should I get to a doctor in the morning?

    How reliable is a 3rd generation HIV test at 4 weeks?

    I am a 20 yr old boy from the Philippines I had my first sexual encounter last April 26, 2018 with two people I met from Grindr. Condoms were used and I dont recall feeling the semen.

    How good and reliable a rapid ICT test (immunochromatographic rapid test) after 3 months ?

    Hi, I am a resident of India. I had an exposure and I took some time to take a HIV test since not aware of much test. I went to a clinic and asked for a rapid test and it came non-reactive. I remember I took this test around 95 days. They have taken the blood from my vein. The report says "HIV RAPID, Serum" and the method is ICT. I never heard about this method. So I am wondering is this test is accurate after 3 months and my results are conclusive ? or do I need to go for any other tests....

    How soon a collected blood to be tested?

    Hi, I had done a hiv duo test at 70 days from an exposure which came non-reactive.I am happy.

I have why it took this much time for the test, they told the sample has to other lab branch in the city only there have the hiv test available. So my sample went to other branch in the next morning and they tested and given the report. So may I know it will affect the accuracy of test ? Since....

    Very scared, and looking for answers..

    10 weeks ago I was very stupid and had unprotected vaginal male / female sex with someone who does not know their status. They said they have never been tested. I am terrified and would love a response. Around 2 weeks later I felt a slight pain in my left groin. The pain also started in my left armpit, within a few weeks I could feel a slight pain in my other armpit and the other side of my groin. I assume these are lymph nodes. I don’t notice any swelling, only a slight pain which comes and goes....

    Will anti-epilepsy drugs affect hiv test?

    I am from India. Any drugs used for epilepsy treatment affect Hiv test? I am on epilepsy treatment for the last 2 years and I am taking oxetol 300 (Oxcarbazepine)and keppra. I doubted an exposure and I took a HIV DUO ULTRA (ELFA method ) at 44 days of that exposure and it is non-reactive. Will the anti-epilepsy drugs affect the accuracy of the test? Can I consider I am safe. Also alcohol affects the test accuracy? Do I need further tests?
