Welcome to our Forum. I'll be pleased to comment. No single sexual exposure places a person at high risk for acquisition of HIV. The reasons for this are several. These include:
1. Most people, including most commercial sex workers do not have HIV.
2. If she was infected, most exposures to infected partners do not lead to infection. In fact, only about 1 in 1000-2000 exposures leads to infection, if your partner had infection.
3. The fact you are uncircumcised does slightly increase your risk for infection but that increase is slight.
Testing is reasonable. It is unlikely that you will be positive. Testing with a standard HIV antibody test at 8 weeks will provide definitive results. I would not worry however. EWH
Thank you doctor for your valuable thoughts, I have given my urine culture test after 4 days of my exposure and they came back negative for chlamydia and gonorrhea. but is 4 days to early to detect chlamydia and gonorrhea?
No, at 4 days your test results from your urine specimen are completely reliable/ EWH
Hello Doctor, she contacted me yesterday and told me that all her tests came back negative. But my question if she is in window period am I be at more risk of acquiring hiv?
If she were in the window period she would be, on average more infectious however, for persons to be in the window period is very, very rare. I urge you not to worry. EWH
Hello Doctor, my 6 week test result came back negative. For one time exposure you and Dr.HHH consider 6 week test as conclusive , so should I take it as conclusive? or get tested again after 12 weeks. Thanks.
If this testing was done with a 4th generation, combination HIV p24 antigen/HIV antobdy test, this is a conclusive result. If the test was only for HIV antibodies, results are not conclsuive until 8 weeks after exposure. EWH
Test is only for hiv antibody, but is 6 week negative a good sign?. Thanks.
Yes, it is a good sign. At 6 weeks antibody tests detect over 95% of recent infections. EWH
