Hi doctor
I have had a sex with a lady with unknown history and it was unprotected sex this was last year may. After time a got seriously worried after I found some etchi red/ pink dots in my back side, I had flu after 2 months of that day and diahrria for three days. I went to the hospital and I test for all STD's and all found negative as my doctor said this could be syphillis (syphilis), the result was negative for syphilis. I went to another doctor he said this is just a kind of allergy. After three months I have done full blood test including STD's ( compo p24 and anti body ) test was negative however, my white blood count was low 2.6 and the avg is 4 to 11.  4 months later test repeated and all results were negative and with low WBC.  Same tests conducted after 6 months and all was negative with 3.3 avg of WBC. I got to know Elisa is best for HIV and I have done it after 6 & 8 months and were negative , dr.recommend for PCR and the result was not clear for me:
Results: < 20 Copies/mL
i.e. < 1.3 log copies/mL
i.e. < 34 UI/mL
i.e. < 1.5 log UI/mL
Interpretation: Threshold is estimated as 20 copies(1.3 log ) of HIV-1 RNA/mL of plasma. the linearity range up to 10000 00 copies/mL(log 7). The quantification Is homogenous For all sub Types of HIV group M and HIV-1 group O tested, but Is not applicable to HIV-2 . This test is exclusively Reserved for the Follow up Vairal load In HIV-1 serpositive Paitints.
I am seriously worried and I have the below questions:
1- does the low WBC is an indication of HIV, or does impact the test as the test can not detect the anti body because of low WBC ?
2- does the low WBC is an indication that my body fight with unknown virus and it could be HIV?
3- does the low WBC impact the window period ?
3- is the above conducted test enough or do we have to do another test ?

Please help me I am sooo tired ... I need answers all the websites are full of conflicting and confusing information ,
Thank you,

Hello

You have asked the following questions:-

1- does the low WBC is an indication of HIV, or does impact the test as the test can not detect the anti body because of low WBC ?

No - your HIV tests are negative meaning that you do not have HIV. Some people have low WBC because of genetic variation or a different condition. But in you the fact is that you do not have HIV - this is proved beyond doubt by the negative HIV tests.

2- does the low WBC is an indication that my body fight with unknown virus and it could be HIV?

It could be a different virus - it could just be normal for you - but the HIV tests have proved you do not have HIV.

3- does the low WBC impact the window period ?

No - not at all.

3- is the above conducted test enough or do we have to do another test ?

You have had enough HIV tests now - you are HIV negative. If you are concerned about your white blood count then you need to see a haematology specialist - you do not have HIV.

Kind regards, Sean
