Im a new member here so Hi all.Well I had sex with a sex worker in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia 10-13 weeks ago,it was protected,and unprotected oral sex 8 weeks ago and I noticed a had a small cut on the head after the oralmsex.After 2 weeks of the unprotected oral sex,I was down with fever about 38 ,flu, soar throat with a small swallon lymph node on the neck and a one time night sweat.I tested negative with a Ag/Ab test 4,6, and 8 weeks after tne unprotectted oral sex.It all came back negative.But now Im having pharyngitis for almost 2 weeks.The condition is mild according to the doctor and he told me to drink a lot of water and gaggle with salt.My question is.
Can I rely on the test for the protected event and unprotected event.Im a Hiv free?
Can I assume that the pharyngitis Im having has nothing to do with Hiv.
Should I get tested again?
So Im Hiv free?and I dont need any futher testing i supposed.Oh yeah and the pharyngitis and the fever is not related to me feeling that i might catch Hiv.I will be happy if Im free of Hiv and thanks for your time teak
I was wondering if you can answe this,does a person with a weak immune system has an effect on the window period eg a person who gets ill easily,and i have read the cdc guidlines i might be wrong but it says latex condom does not work 100% and testing after 6 months is conclusive.sorry for the trouble and my last post was not to caused panic as i was just confused.thanks
i wish i could go on with my life but im still having this pharyngitis which hasnt go away i did go to the ear nose and throat and they just gave me something to gargle,the thing is i never had pharyngiti in my life and never had a sore throat for this long thats why im a bit paranoid
ok i got that just to clariry the test i mentioned is indeed a 4th gen test right this question has nothing to do with others opinion just for my own knowledge thanks and i will stay away from this forum
I remember what happened the last 3 months plus i did have a brief unprotected sex with a csw,that was at the end of it.I got tested 3 days ago with an eclia test the result is -ve.But the doc said i might have a severe compromised immune system due to my chronic pharyngitis which i still have till now but its getting better and better and he said go get tested after 6 months just to make sure.What do you guys think of this?
the exposure was a brief unprotected vaginal sex and let me try to understand this that you disagree with my doc that i have a severe immune system due to my chronic pharyngitis yeah?thats it i promise i will leave this thread.thanks
