" My question is is it common to have these infection during chemo or I contacted hiv."
Symptoms alone are never enough to diagnose HIV. Only a test can tell.
This whole "antibody production delay" for chemo is very controversial. At 4 months you can be sure an antibody test would pick up anything if you had contracted the virus. So, even if you don't consider it conclusive, you can certainly consider it an excellent indication. And maybe do another antibody test at 6 months, which I don't think is necessary.
By the way, can you explain what kind of exposure you had ?
So, you have nothing to worry about.
They don't test it for antibodies. They check for viral loads.
If a blood and/or platelet transfusion is what you fear may have been a risk for HIV, below I have listed all the tests that are run on every single blood donation. Please rest assured that any transfusion you received is positively "clean!"
Blood donations are tested for the following:
ABO and Rh blood types.
Unexpected red blood cell antibodies that are a result of prior transfusion, pregnancy, or other factors.
Hepatitis B surface antigen, indicating a current infection (hepatitis) or carrier state for hepatitis B virus.
Antibody to hepatitis B core antigen, indicator of a present or past infection with the hepatitis B virus.
Antibody to hepatitis C virus, indicating a current or past infection with hepatitis C virus (most common cause of non-A/non-B hepatitis).
Antibody to HTLV-I/II, indicator of infection with a virus that may cause adult T-cell leukemia or neurological disease.
Antibody to HIV-1/2, indicator of infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
Nucleic Acid Test (NAT) for hepatitis C (HCV), hepatitis B (HBV) and HIV.
Screening test for antibodies to syphilis.
NAT for West Nile Virus (WNV).
Enzyme-linked immunoassay (ELISA) test for Trypanosoma cruzi (Chagas Disease).
In addition, all platelet apheresis donations are tested for bacterial contamination.
I hope this will put your mind at rest.
I wish you the very best
Sorry, my mistake. They seem to check for antibodies too. I just wanted to say there is no reason for concern for HIV regarding blood transfusion. And thank you Rubywitch for the details. Your presence here is a blessing.
Hi everyone like I said before I was on chemo and finished chemo on 12 Feb 2016 so my question is if I go for antibodies test on 10 March 2016 is any possibities I can get false negative or positive or can I go for instant hiv test..
No I am not worried from blood transfusion just I was saying when they gave me transfusion my antibiodies were negative because my white blood count was (neutrophils 0, lymphocytes 0 including all others count were 0). So my question is if I go for HIV test would chemo affect on test results.
Ah ok, so you have had an unprotected sex encounter? That wasn't clear in your question. Normally everyone informs about the encounter, so that a risk analyse can be done and the best advise(from our knowledge) can be given. With Chemo therapy from what I understood in my time at the STD clinic this can only theoratically delay antibodies, but they said they never seen a delay because of this. But maybe best to do is contact your local STD clinic in this case and inform them about the situation and mention you have done testing etc.
Ah ok, then I can tell you you don't have any worries about HIV. The pain will be something not related to HIV or other STD.
See a urologist if you are still having pain.
