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.
Hi guys, Seven months ago i was in a low risk situation(been with a girl once, used condom at some point, by that i mean the condom could have been broken and yes i was drunk. I didn’t do anything else just a brief veginal sex with no ejaculation) After 2 weeks i had palpitations and lost my appetite for awhile. I had no other symptoms but now i feel depressed...I have done all the STDs including HIV 2 weeks after the exposure and they were all negative....I'm so stressed and depressed now and i'm so scared of doing the HIV again...Instead last month i have done CD4+CD8 test and the results were(WBC 5900/ul, CD4 38% Absolute CD4 833/ul ,Cd8 25%, CD4/Cd8 1.5) I have done the same test again just yesterday and the results were( WBC 7100/ul, CD4 46% Absolute CD4 1923/u,CD8 20%, CD4/CD8 2.3).....................How can my Absolute count of CD4 from this month is so much more that previous month? I know that the test can vary but not this much!!! Is It possible that the lab made a mistake this time?....IS THIS NORMAL? Considering the CD4 percentage is 46%? I wasn't sick or anything this time!... Help me please!!! Thank u all so much
Your blood values ( especially WBC's) vary greatly constantly. Your counts are absolutely within NORMAL range. Your CD 4 count is exactly the opposite of what we see with HIV infection. You should NEVER use a CBC to try and determine your HIV status. ONLY an HIV-specific Assay (antibody) test) should be used to detect HIV
