getting tested after 12 weeks will be 99% accurate
see there we go again 99 percent arrrr!!!! when is it 100 percent???????????
at 6 months ur 100% in the clear
man your reading old guidelines the new one is 3 months 12/13 weeks
care to comment anyone else please
my local gum clinic recon that they have never known of anyone testing negative at 6 weeks who later became positive. so your 14 week test is 100% conclusive. you dont have hiv
Congrats on your conclusive negative results. Now you can put this whole thing behind you and drive on with life. 3 months is 100% conclusive according to the CDC, which always will inflate the time anyway for some extra cushion.
Should be fine. An experienced clinician with knowledge of someone's particular case may request the patient to re-attend if they have cause for concern (usually if it's clinically obvious). If they didn't you can assume you're fine.
see again there is catch for a particular special case..
do not know what is truth 3month.6month,1year...
i have thrush,skin rash,swollen nodes from the last 12 months and had all kind of symptoms in the first 3 months.
tested at 9 months with antibody and DNA PCR test and negative.
but anyhow after 2 days I will have my 13 months test.
good luck and bye
nothing is 100 percent except when you die thats a proven fact
if it helps any of you guys i stopped testing at 84 days i have not retested and i dont plan to
Yes coz120, as alienshadow says 'nothing is 100%' and certainly not in any area of science or technology. What I can say with certainty is that an experienced clinician would be able to advise if follow up testing is required.
some ppl just HAVE to always cast doubt on the forum...why? i dont know.
you are as negative as negative can get. there is NO NEED for further testing :)
i AGREE lizzie
now for those famous words
MOVE ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OOPSSSSSSSSSS
That was addressed to coz, in relation to lostone-8's question - the ONLY question that should be discussed in his thread. If coz takes it that I'm referring to his situation in this thread then he shouldn't have thread jumped
Anyway I PMed coz advice particular to his situation to keep it out this thread..
What I wrote is the general advice given by the health protection agencies which is the advice on window periods that SHOULD be given because it's based on hard science,, epidemiological studies and fact, not on repeating what others have written on medhelp..
The minimum window period continues to be 3 months but experienced clinicians will determine if further testing is required after that based on the risks and thir clinical assessment of the patient.
Back to the original poster's question.
As it has been said several hundred time on this forum 3 months is conclusive.
so 3 months not 6 rite????
It is clear enough.3 months UNLESS a clinician determines otherwise. You would know they would tell you.
i have one last dumb question ok so i tested neg at 15 weeks i take that as conclusive now i may of had an exposure a month ago when i went to get a massage the girl gave me a happy ending also (a handjob) a fews days after that it kind of burned when i urinated and i went for a check up they did the swab and diagnosed me with ngu all tests for chylmidia gonnerea and stds were neg so with that said if she toucched her vagina and gave me a handjob rite after does that put me at risk for hiv?
teak alien frank anyone??????
If you have NSU it's because they've gone through the algorithm to determine it's cause
1 it's non gonococcal (not gonoreah bacteria)
2 it's not the main cause of NSU Chlamydia.
So that means it's non specific, I'd only be speculating on the souce of the bacteria or fungus possibly from your girl's hands or your own) and I don't have the swabs, agar plate, stain ...I can't diagnose over the nternet or at all because I'm not a Doctor. I can only give pointers
Also it's not an HIV issue so not for this forum.
i dont know why this situation was so tramatic that everytime i go back to my exposure my symptoms my fiances symptoms it freaks me out and i start thinking i am infected again i tested neg all the way out to 15 weeks but am still not convinced does anyone have any advice or ideas of how to cope with this
