kudos to the experts here for their efforts,
Dear doctor, I had a low risk protected vaginal intercourse with a FSW in thailand,ihad a wound on the hand and forehead- fresh,and i washed my penis after i removed the condom,i was afraid that either the wound or the washing of the penis with hands having some of the vaginal secretions sticking on the condom may have transmitted HIV to me.I took the following tests
ALL were NEGATIVE
DAY 4 (108 hours post exposure) 1)HIV DUO -CMIA 2) p24 by ELFA 3)PCR proviral DNA by realtime
COBAS TAQMAN RNA test
DAY 8 HIV proviral DNA (nested)
DAY 30 1)HIV DUO -CMIA 2) p24 by ELFA 3)PCR proviral DNA by realtime
COBAS TAQMAN RNA test
DAY 41 HIV 2 proviral DNA nested PCR.
i am a relieved with the negative reports and consulted a WHO panelist doctor STD and HIV expert who also is a panelist in Thailand for HIV "(Thai govt) he was categorical that i was 200% HIV negative and said "get lost"(as an indication of my -ve status).seeing your expertise in HIV i wanted an opinion from you to help me take a decision with having sex with my wife. What do you think is my HIV status based on my test reports rather than my low risk exposure ?
Thanks a lot
