First: Yes. If a condom is in place for the entire time of vaginal penetration and remains intact, protection is complete. All condoms are equally effective if there is no obvious breakage.
Second: No, 10 days is too soon for an ELISA test. But you still can be sure you were not infected, because of the condom and because it is unlikely your partner had HIV, and your symptoms do not sound like those of an HIV infefection. But if you want even greater certainty, you could have another HIV test now.
HIV/AIDS cure: At present, HIV treatment is so effective that most infected persons who have access to excellent health care can expect to live normal life spans. There are hopes for future treatments that may actually provide a cure, i.e. to eradicate HIV from the body. Two years ago I would have said this is impossible, but some experts believe it may happen in the next few years.
That should end this thread. Take care.
Thanks alot. You have clear my doubt.
Just to reconfirm my understanding,
firstly, you mean that my sex exposure is safe eventhough the make of condom is unknow?
second,my ELISA test result is conclusive after 10 days exposure?
Other points are clear and understood.
One more question, base on your opinion, do you think there will be HIV and AIDS cure in the future, probably how long has to go?
Your English is fine, and there is nothing offensive or improper in your question.
Welcome to the forum. You had accurate replies on the community forum -- I can confirm them. You had a low risk exposure and your test results show you did not catch HIV.
1) Test results are not changed by symptoms, and test results always overrule both symptoms and exposure history. Even if you had a very high risk exposure, and even if your symptoms suggested HIV (which they do not), the test results prove you were not infected.
2) Dizziness, by itself, is not a symptom of HIV. This symptom is unrelated to HIV, any STD, and to your sexual exposure a few weeks earlier.
3) The HIV test results are designed to be very robust -- that it, exceedingly reliable under any and all circumstances. Storing the blood for a few days makes no difference.
4) No medications of any kind have any effect on HIV test results. (With the possible exceptions of cancer chemotherapy and powerful immune-suppressing drugs -- and even these are theoretical, with few if any known cases.)
Bottom line: You had a safe sex exposure that could not have resulted in HIV, and your test results prove you were not infected. If you continue to have symptoms that concern you, visit a doctor or clinic to learn the cause. It is not HIV.
