Herpes Valacyclovir affect hiv antibody prodution?
Hello My name is Jaz from Canada. I had an unprotected oral sex with a women on 22 Sep 2009. It was only insertive fellatio.
1. After 1 week of possible exposure i start having pain in my groin and arms lymph nodes. I got sore throat at 2nd week. I still have it. I got Hiv test at 2 weeks, 6 weeks and almost 11 weeks (7 Dec '09) after possible exposure. All came back negative.
2. I have herpes for last 6 years. After unprotected sex i got blister on my penis and i went to doctor. they did swab test and it came out to be HSV-2. I start taking Valacyclovir 1000mg for 1.5 week period (after 2 weeks from unprotected oral sex).
3. My question is - Will taking Valacyclovir for 1.5 weeks after 2 weeks from possible Exposure (TO HIV) will delay production on HIV antibodies. If yes how long i have to wait to get accurate test result with HIV Rapid Test (Insti by Biolitical Laboratories Canada.)
4. My present sumptoms are - Rashes on chest shoulders with puss kinda a thing in it , Sore throat from 10 weeks, chest pain.
