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.
I'm sorry to bother you again, but as I had my severe fatigue investigated, docs noted an abnormally low testosterone level (below lower range). Would this affect my immune system in such a way that I would have to retest beyond the 3 month point?
Thanks for your reply but I have received feedback from my doctor.
I have both testosterone and growth hormone deficiency, soon to be treated though, both explaining my severe fatigue and exercise intolerance.
I have received my 13 week negative after a broken condom (with a prostitute who also does bare) and severe fatigue (and depression) following. Do I have to retest after 6 months because of these deficiencies possibly affecting my immune response?
In an adult, a positive HIV antibody test result means that the person is infected, a person with a negative or inconclusive result may be in the “window for 4 to 6 weeks but occasionally up to 3 months after HIV exposure. Persons at high risk who initially test negative should be retested 3 months after exposure to confirm results
