Thank you for your post. Your sexual encounter as described would have not posed any risk of HIV infection. Let me answer to your questions here below:
1- Can the tests done in Tunisia miss the HIV strain that been cached in Toronto: NO
2- Do you see my symptom related to any STD: NO
3- Should I test at 6 months ( I’m afraid delay seroconversion due to double infection such as hep c and HIV): NO
4- Do you recommend PCR RNA at this time or CD4 blood analysis: NO
5- Is the Elisa test that I did is same as DOU or combo ? I AM NOT SURE, BUT IF IT IS OF FOURTH GENERATION WOULD ALSO INCLUDE THE DETECTION OF THE P24 ANTIGEN, LIKE THE DUO.
IN ANY CASE, YOUR TEST AT 13 WEEKS IS FINAL AND FULLY CONCLUSIVE, EVEN IF IT WAS AN ANTIBODY TEST ONLY.
I can assure you that you are HIV negative without any doubt.
Thank you for your reply. I’m really appreciating your feedback and will NOT go in more questions. Just please answer may final questions to go out from this cycle.
Can the ARS last until week 14 starting at week 2 ?.
Can the ARS come and go. I.e. Some days i have nausea some days i feel gas in stomach but without nausea est.?
How can I distinguish between my symptoms and ARS ?
I’m really in a cycle (symptoms, anxiety, test, relief) and I want to go out from this cycle.
I promises this is my final question and I hope the best for you too.
The answer to the first two questions is NO.
ARS Symptoms would happen at any time between two and six weeks form infection, not before and not afterwards, lasting not longer than 10-14 days, and over 90% of people who are sero-converting would experience the following symptoms at the same time: high fever, severe sore throat, and maculo-papular rash all over the body, mainly trunk.
