If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and want help to judge your risk, would like advice about HIV testing, or have questions about the effectiveness of condoms or risks associated with specific sexual practices, this is the site for you.
For 5 years I have been living with a belief that I am HIV positive and finally got tested four times last year and got the result as negetive for all the four tests. How acurate the tests are after 5 years to the exposure. all these tests were for HIV 1 what are the chances of being exposed to HIV 2 in USA.
I had sex with sex worker almost 5 years back i used condom that time.
But after my sex i saw some sticky liquid on my condom , i dont know it was her vaginal liquid or ma condom got broke.
But after 5 years when i Test myself with 1) Hiv Trio-dot 2) Hiv Elisa antibody 3) Hiv Elisa Antidody / antigen. all came back NON REACTIVE
White blood count is 5.00 mm3
Lymphocyte count is 1.92 mm3
But my main concern is
1) can hiv antibodies stay such longer period in body?
2) 5 years period ok for hiv antibody test?
3) do i need CD4cout test?
4) According to my CBC Report can i consider my immune system is fine and my body have capacity to produce antibody?
5) Can we can predict CD4 count on basic of lymphocytes count? ( I HEARD SOMEWHERE THAT CD4 COUNT IS ALMOST HALF OF YOUR LYMPHOCYTES COUNT)
if ELISA/tridot is non reactive then negative...ELISA gives a false negative after 12/13 weeks results under follow conditions(as per my knowledge).
2)when HIV gets transformed to AIDS in last stage(in this stage human body's immune system fails completely and hence does not produce any anti bodies).Anyone won't be able to get out of his bed in this stage..I hope your situation is not that bad.
