HI all the experts here, just wanted to know the accuracy of an antigen test is it reliable or not. I have tested on 19 days - 20 days after a possible exposure (unprotected vaginal sex) and I'm a male.
Just wanted to check it out that, i know the window period of antibody is 4 weeks - 3 months, so how about the Antigen test?
I have tested the on both antigen and antibody by around 19 days - 20 days possible exposure, does the Antigen test result can be reliable? What is the window period for antigen test?? around 20 days is it good enough?
i already asked you many questions
i had negetive elisa test on 36,92,164 days which came negetive but on the 4 th time on 212 days i saw the report which was negetive in the report it was written kit used GENEDIA HIV 1/2 ELISA 3.0 INDEX VALUE 0.12 CUT OFF VALUE 0.359 RESULT NEGETIVE
1. WAS THE GENERATION 3rd AS IT WAS WRITTEN GENEDIA HIV 1/2 ELISA 3.0 2. DO I NEED ANOTHER TESTING AS I HAD NO OTHER EXPOSURE SINCE 212 DAYS
Is it possible to have HIV or AIDS yet continue to have negative antibody tests? My Elisa lab test was at 28 days but the clinic insti rapid tests were at 115 days, 155 days and 313 days. Everything was negative .
I know that three months is considered conclusive but I continue to present symptoms..
Does 99.6% mean that 4 out of 1000 will be false negative? I fear I am one of those four.I have no pre existing conditions that I am aware of. I want to give blood again but am afraid to.
Hi .. 6 years ago i was in highly risky exposure with a house maid from Indonesia .. unprotected anal and vaginal.
I didnt have any test until last year when I started having strange symptoms
I was diagnosed with chronic Gastritis at first.
lost 10 kg of my weight and started having fevers.burning joints.and fatigue .. With constant diarrhae thats when i suspected Hiv.
So i decided to have tests .. i did combo hiv1,2 ag ab and the result was Negative
Elisa test ab Negative
Pcr hiv1 Also negative
and one more combi-duo test was Negative.
My problem is that i still have some symptoms (fatigue-joint burning-mouth burning-beard hair rash) with elevated esr and what seems to be decreasing Wbc (4.1 last time i checked.)
I really need help here .. should i continue investegating Hiv or not ?
Was my tests relible after six years of exposure?
Is tri dot HIV 1 and 2 test found both antibodies and antigen
I had a following exposure a Month ago:
With a CSW, I did not do a penile-vaginal intercourse.
I did dry humping though. On her stomach and on and around her Vagina.
Throughout the Dry Humping, I was wearing a Condom and an Underwear. She was completely naked.
I have asked this before and have got a reply from you that the encounter is not a risky one and has low chances of transmission of HIV.
Still because of super anxiety, I went in for an HIV Test:
4th Gen DUO Test: 3rd Day: Non Reactive
4th Gen DUO Test: 19th Day: Non Reactive HIV 1 RNA Quantification Test (Cobas Ampliprep and Cobas Taqman): Below 20 copies/mL The Range of Detection of this test is: 20 Copies/mL
Is it fine that the result above is Below 20 copies/mL ?
I faced Night Sweats for 2-3 nights but no other symptoms. Is the RNA Test on Day 26 proper ?
Below 20 copies/mL means it is negative, right ?
I asked the Lab, they said it is Negative ! But I want to re confirm !
Also, I will test at the 84 day mark but I am worries a lot because of the above !
