waiting for hiv results......risk to baby
« on: March 24, 2015, 03:11:26 PM »
Hi, I am a male,  in my ninth week of waiting period, with a negative on sixth week. Meanwhile I really want to know how to handle my kid situation. She is eleven months old. Yesterday while she was playing with me, she put her hands on my pant to hold for support and then later,she put her hand in her mouth, actually thumb, which is her habit. I later realized my pants had a liquid mark, probably my precum, or some discharge which happens to me if I don't masturbate for some days before. Please tell me the risk of my child. The stain on my pants looked wet so it might have been less than minutes old. Should I take her to pep treatment? Please let me know. I know adults dont have any risk, but a child even with little virus on her hands might have a risk when she put in mouth?

What was your risk ? please be specific .

Hiv is a fragile, difficult to transmit virus that is primarily transmitted INSIDE the human body, as in UNPROTECTED anal or vaginal intercourse where the virus never leaves the confines of the two bodies. Once hiv finds itself outside the body, small changes in temperature, and pH and moisture levels all quickly damage the virus and render it unable to infect. You need not worry about infecting your child in the manner you are concerned with .

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI.Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence .

Anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

Thanks for the reply. My risk was unprotected vaginal with an unknown status woman. I had all flu like symptoms and night sweats for more than two weeks beginning at third week maybe.

So you are sure that my child has no risk? What if it was semen? And if it wasnt dried? I immediately went to restroom and cleaned my penis and it looked normal and not white in color. But I m still scared. How efficient is pep in children? Please let me know. I am very scared.

WOW! Are you mixing things up or what . Take a breath, no kidding.

First of all, with a negative at 6 weeks after a single risky incident, you will almost certainly test conclusively negative at 3 months.

Your baby was not at risk and your pants or hands could have been covered in sperm and vaginal fluids and whatever still not have put the baby at risk. HIV is a fragile virus and is not passed in the ways you are worrying about.

It's your guilt and not HIV science that is driving your worries. Cut it out. Really.

I expect you to come out of this ok.

Thanks Andy. I just got my 3rd gen 7th week results as negative. I took it from stdtestexpress.com and they ordered it in quest diagnostics. They say it as conclusive and I can be extremely confident of my result.  But I developed a mouth sore today, at the end of tenth week.

Could you please tell me if I need additional testing.

Your 7th week negative result is unlikely to change.  If you are still unsure, you can test at 12 weeks to confirm the results.

I have one more question. I had a minor surgery before the exposure....3 days before. Would that affect antibody production? I was given general anaesthesia and have a wound to be healed after surgery, which is still healing. Thanks.

P.s. I wasnt prescribed any medication though.

You should discuss this issue with your doctor.  I have no idea which strains your test covered and only your doctor can advise you on the need for further testing.

Joe, since hiv 2 is very rare, my doctor doesn't seem to care about it. But I want to know if any of the members on this forum has seen a hiv 2 case and does it take longer to turn positive? I hope I'm not being repetitive, but I just want to know if hiv 2 can be ruled when someone has a Duo negative at seven weeks. Thanks.

The strain does not matter in how long it would take to show positive on a test.

Your symptoms have nothing to do with HIV as you have reliably tested negative.

Symptoms can be caused by excess stress and anxiety and are most likely the cause of your mouth ulcers.  If they concern you, you should consult your doctor, as they have nothing to do with HIV.

I just developed another conjunctivitis. I have oral thrush already from many weeks. Now I am also having those throat pain and chills which I experienced in fourth week. Though many are saying I'm reliably negative, I cant seem to think of any other reason for all these infections. Can stress  alone cause all these symptoms?

It's not up to you to "think" of what is causing your symptoms. You should be discussing them with your doctor.

You have reliably tested negative for HIV. You ARE HIV negative. Period.

Unfortunately you continue to misinterpret everything that happens to you physically as another sign of HIV. Talk to your doctor.

Thanks Andy. But my question is, how can we conclude that as I have only tested till seven weeks for hiv 2 antibody. And the rna testing I had was for hiv 1. Ideally I have to wait another two weeks to have conclusive result as there is no rna testing for hiv 2. There is so little info about this strain and its really being tough to wait two more weeks.

Thank you.

I got an antibody test done which is called electrochemiliminescenece (not sure of generation) at 80th day and the result came back non reactive. The index value( given as COI) was 0.301. Could anyone please clarify about the index value should be less than that isually. They didnt give any range for reference on results, but I'm assuming it's 0 to 1.

Do I need another test after two weeks? Thanks

Hello  Andy, Jeff, Joe and all

Please dont ban me as I am here to ask few more questions about other encounters which I wasn't concerned about earlier. The first risk I had posted was with someone I was meeting regularly.  So I have two more encounters to mention about with same woman. After the first unprotected encounter, I was being careful and using condom the next week we met. But this time, I tried to insert- I didn't but while trying again, I changed my condom inside up and used it again. There was probably a minute gap between changing the condom. Was that a risk, as condom might had her fluids on it?

Next week we met, I was already coming down with a fever, so I wasnt active in making out. But she humped me while I was wearing my underwear and shorts. My penis was erect and her fliuds were all over my short and there was friction. Is this a risk?

If last mentioned encounter was a risk, my pcr test would be seventh week and antibody test..ie Cmia would be 9.5 weeks.

Do I need furthr testing. I only post this because the technician I met asked me to get tested after some more time to be sure.

Thanks.

None of the details in your latest incident put you at risk. HIV is a fragile virus and touching her vaginal fluids through reversing the condom would not have put you at risk.

Since you are a worrier, avoid concerns in the future simply by using a fresh condom.

Thanks Andy. But my urethra came into contact with her vaginal fluids both the time, first while reversing condoms and second, while wearing shorts.

I'm having recurrent mouth sores and yeast, which I never had before. I know im not supposed to talk about symptoms, but these are making me think about all possible risks.

In case the above were risks, my rna would be 7th week and cmia 4th gen would be 10th week. Is testing still warranted later? Thanks.

Hi all,

I didn't mention one thing about my first exposure, that I had exposure with blood as she was still menstruating. It was a brief exposure but an exposure.


Anyway, today after four months I have antibody test for hep c which came back negative. But rna pcr for that came positive. Now I'm really really worried that my 3 months hiv test came back false negative because of confection.
It was roche combi 4 pt.

Please help me as im losing it.

Please help me. I read in several forums that coinfectiob might delay hiv antibody test. And it is very easy to mess up a PCR test, so may be mine gave a false negative.

I am humbly requesting you all to help me in this situation. I need your help.Please. Why are hcv antibodies not produced even after 4 months. Is it because of coinfection?

Jeff, thanks for quick reply. But please try to understand my situation. Right now I am in a small town of a developing country with no ID specialists.

I got tested myself for hcv without any docs suggestion. Nite what I read is hcv confection may push hiv window period to 6 months. Do I have to wait 3  more months to get conclusive result. Testing team is not knowledgeable about this dissipation situation either. Please help me. You are most knowledgeable people around here I have access to.

Can I forget about hiv despite of hcv?

Hello all,

Please don't ban me for posting once more. I have a real question. Please understand me.

As I mentioned in prev posts, My four month antibody for hcv came back negative, but rna pcr was there. This means there were no antibodies produced for hcv despite of enough time. This happens mostly when immunity is comprised, which can be with coinfection.

My post might have sounded repetitive, but I saw posts by Ann in this forum mentioning delayed ab response due to hcv. Please advice if I need to test again at six months as I have been abstaining from sex for four months now. I don't want to put others at risk. Please advice keeping in mind all my exposure, symptoms and hcv.

I don't have access to ID and my GP is not sure.


Thanks.

Hello everyone,

Please help me. I am having rectal discharge of mucous I think, it's not blood. It's smelling like stools.


I think it is being causee by hcv, but I have doctor appointment in a week. Could you please tell me if that discharge may contain hcv in it. I am living around babies in my house and very scared.

 Also I know I tested beyond three months for hiv, but some suggested 6 months when acute hcv is involved. Please please let me know if anal discharge of mucous can contain hiv from a poz person. I just want to be careful around kids. Please tell me it could infect an infant. I know I am posting extensively, but considering my hcv, I dont wabt to a risk. I hope you all are not getting irritated by my questions, but I really need your exper help. Thanks.

You do not have HIV and need to be working with your doctor to answer any more questions you may have ... We have told you over and over HIV is not your problem and we have done all we can for you .

We cant diagnose you over the internet and we only do HIV risk assessments so go see a doctor if you are sick.
