I too believe I had an exposure in sep it was limited to foreplay and oral sex with condom, she went the extra mile and licked my scrotum, my thighs and stomach. I had fever within 3 days felt really scared health has never been the same again. I took a test for infectious virology (HbsAg, HIV & HCV) from KIMS, Kerala after 98 days from exposure it came back negative they use 4th generation testing at KIMS with Eclia Roche Cobas. My ID specialist and 2 Internal Medicine Specialists told me that the test was conclusive.....I am having trouble accepting the results as I dont feel the same anymore....maybe stress is doing it....this forum is a mighty help...specially Teak...he authoritatively states that I was not at risk at all....follow their advice and get tested as you are now past 12 weeks....and put u r mind at rest...I now trying to keep away as much as I can from my research over the net...pls do so after your 12th week test...God be with u brother.

Shibu are u based out of Middle East now? Where do u hail from in Kerala? We have good doctors here..my suggestion is to see a doctor mainly an Infectious Diseases specialist or someone from Internal Medicine. Tell them your medical issues and get the right guidance...Medhelp is a wonderful forum they even advice to consult a Doctor. My problem was just going and asking for a Hiv test..I should have seen a doctor and got pre counseling. However I saw a doctor and got post test councelling..my ID specialist put my mind at ease to a great extent he said I am safe after a complete blood check. ..I have become overtly sensitive looking for symptoms now I jump at everything...despite having a 14 weeks negative combo test. ..I think u r in a similar situation. ..a doctors words could certainly bring more clarity and I am now following my doctors advice to break the thought of Hiv and not look for symptoms....god bless you brother
yes.. im frm calicut// were r u frm in kerala.. do you have symptoms? i have sore throat, cough,muscle pain , loss stool, and all sort of symptoms im fed u with all these symptoms// i have a question do hiv2 infection cause delayed positive testing?do any one know all these symptoms are from hiv?
value does not signify anything...if its greater than 1 you're believed to be infected..but other than that it means NOTHING..MOST HIV tests just report reactive or non-reactive these days without mentioning the index value!!!
get tested now and get back to life! and no a neg 8 week turning positive is rare esp with the sensitive modern day tests!
do you think all my symptoms are related to hiv ., i have severe sore throat.soft stool, muscle pain, pain in arm pit,high heart beat rate,cough, white thing on toung, pain on upper left side of abdomen what all these mean?? pls comment sir//
