Antigen Test ???
« on: June 12, 2006, 09:59:37 AM »
Dear all,

Hello. I have seen this site is the best to have accurate answers to HIV risk's assessement. This is my situation. I have been out 10 days from now and got drunk. I know drink and sex wouldn't go togather but I made a big mistake. I start to get alone with a sex worker. She was also drunk, I gave her a brife handjob and she put condom on me. The condom were not worn to the end of my penis. It only covers about half way. My penetration was also not deep and only 5 or six times. The whole thing was over less than a 1 min. Before I completly ejaculates, I withdraw. When I withdraw, the condom was there and when I take off it, at the tip of the condom, I see that it holds the some amout of waterry liquid, assumed my sperm.

I got panic next mrn'g. I have checked -ve on April and this is the only explosure I have since January. I got some pimps in my fingers and around my neck and i got this very sore thorat for like 7 days now, starting from the third day from my explosure. Today, I have headache too. What do you think would be my chance of being affected from this explousre?

All the best to all

Nabale,

You did not have a risk of hiv infection. You used a condom and condoms have been proven to be very effective when it comes to preventing hiv transmission.

Keep using condoms and you will avoid hiv infection.

Please read through the Welcome Thread for more information and please also read through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use those condoms with confidence.

Tnx Ann....

Is the condom was up only half way, virtually almost just or small more covering the head, will it be different? Casue I am sure it protects the tip...but what if there is any microscopic holes on the way up ?

I just got worried, especially after i got this weird sore thorat for like 7 days.

Nabale,

As long as the head of your penis was covered by the condom, you were protected against hiv infection.

Skin is an excellent barrier against hiv and the skin on your penis is no different. It is the head of the penis that needs to be protected because that is where the urethra is located. The urethra (where you pee and cum out of) is vulnerable to hiv infection and so is the foreskin if you have one.

There is no such thing as microscopic holes in condoms. That is a myth put about by people who don't want anyone to use condoms or have sex outside of marriage.

You did not have a risk of hiv infection. Period.

Thnx for your prompt response Ann.. Don't judge me but I was talking about the hole on my penis skin, not about the hole of the condom and sry for misunderstanding... I am dead sure that the tip is protected, but worried about the skin of my penis. we didn't use any lubricant at all... In addition, I assumed that handjob is not a risk, from what I read from other threads....If the exposure I got from my last Negative result is only this, you think I would be -ve? I am thinking of taking test on 6 then 12 weeks again.

Tnx again.

As long as your penis head was covered there wasn't any risk in anything else that you have reported. I don't see any need for testing so whether you test at 6 weeks or 13 weeks is really irrelevant.

And yes, I expect you will test negative so testing would be strictly for your peace of mind, not because there was any real risk.

The real red flag in what you have reported is your having mixed excessive drinking with casual/impulsive sex. That's a might dangerous combination. In this instance you seem to have scooted by safely, but you need to learn from this experience and not repeat your dangerous behavior.

Cheers,
Andy Velez

I am very sry for not following the guidelines, I just didn't know how to get into the original one. Every one on the site keep tell'n me that no need for testing if the viginal reationship is protected. I just have one of that and feel very fatique today and high-body temp. I know there is no way it could be ARS or something but hope that I would be ok.

Tnx and sry for the confussion i made

Nabale,

Condoms provide excellent protection against hiv infection. I am hiv positive and my partner of seven years is hiv negative. He stays hiv negative because we use condoms. Condoms prevent hiv infection. It really is that simple.

And NO, you do not need to test over this incident.

Nabale,

Symptoms or the lack of symptoms mean nothing when it comes to hiv infection.

In order to become infected with hiv, you have to have a risk of infection first. You did not have a risk of hiv infection. Condoms prevent hiv infection - that is why you are supposed to use them.

If you are having problems with your body, you must see a doctor. Nobody can diagnose your ailment over the internet.

You did not have a risk of hiv infection.

How are you Everyone again. Hope everyone is do'g good... It is been 7 weeks from my frist encounter with condom covering my dickhead and 3 weeks from another incident again protected sex. Since starting just last weeks, I lost almost 3 Kg ( within 5 days). And starting from Yesarday i have this very weird itching all over my face, including on my face. I have also slight headache with fever for like 5 days. I start to fear again. Is this in any way a show of my sero-conversion or am I making my self crazy again. Besides if i sero-convert on the first incident, is there any chance to sero-convert again. Both of sex was casual, the first one with drinking but the second one was not.

All the Best.

Nabale,

Protected intercourse is NOT a risk for hiv infection. You have NOT had a risk of hiv infection. You could not possibly be going through seroconversion after your unprotected encounters.

If you have concerns about your body, go see a doctor.

Nab, it's not surprising that you're losing weight. How could you not when you are so anxious and worried and probably not eating regularly?

You need to separate your thoughts and feelings about this incident from the reality of HIV science. As you have been told repeatedly, you were not at risk in this incident. There is absolutely nothing in any of the symptoms which you have related or any you may add to the list which suggests that HIV is an issue for you. Ann has correctly told you that in any case neither the presence nor the absence of symptoms is ever the way to know anything accurately about HIV status. Only a test taken at the recommend time (13 weeks) after the most recent UNPROTECTED incident will give you that answer.

Your symptoms are something for you to sort out with your doctor. You may very well have a virus. That doesn't mean the virus is HIV even though your mind keeps scaring you with that thought. At this point you are in a state of mind where you seem to think that anything that happens to you physically is yet another sign of HIV. Wrong, wrong, WRONG!

You were not at risk during the incident as described. I certainly expect that you will test negative.

Period.

Do you guys think they might be other STD, may be syphilis to get from this incident, or better to check all STDs in 6 or 13 weeks? Of course my real concern remains to be HIV...

Hello evry one out there,

I am gett'n back with worries. It is been 9 weeks from my first incident of insertive sex ( Condoms only cover my dickhead) and almost 6 weeks of another protected sex. For the last 2 weeks I had this very weird soft stomach and diaharra, with no stocmache. I had no fever nor headache after the first 4 weeks of my last incident. As I have said I am thinking of taking a test, if I got the gut, on next week. What do you think of the diaharra about, do you think it is some thing to do with ARS?

Hi everyone,

I came back again. It is been more than 12 weeks from my first protected sex incident and 8 weeks from my last protected sex. I couldn't get a gut to check. Worries comes back to me again while I see these weird pimps in my mouse, comes and go within 2-3 days duration time. I also have the same problem in my eyes, like i have one in my left eye and then on the next day on my right one three or four times. I have also those things around my ear and faces. I am now thinking of taking a test after one month, but IS these staffs are ARS things, I don't have fever or headache this time and no sweating?

Hi every one, I took a test today and I am not positive, I am negative. They run a quick check, after about 15-20 min. the Dr. told me that the result is negative. I am not sure what this result mean (Cause it is only 8 weeks from the last incident, which was protected), but i am happy. What do you think ppl? I have heard the majority would sero-convert 4-6 weeks, mine is 8 weeks. Sound reliable or there is still a chance for sero-conversion. I don't use drugs or something..

Nabale,

As you didn't have a risk of hiv infection in the first place, you can take your eight week negative as conclusive.

You are hiv negative. You do not have hiv.

Please protect that negative status by continuing to use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions. Use condoms and avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple.

Dear all,

Even if I felt some amount of shame, I came back to this site with some other worries because there is no site like this which gives accurate info. About risk assessments of STDs. Here is my situation. I had a problem with drinking and swear not to drink for some time with my consular help. After three month with out any sip, I had a relapse two weeks back. After I got drunk I had sex with a woman with whom I don't know her status of HIV. First there was oral sex with out protection. Then the vaginal penetration of about 4-6 thrusting her with condom. The condom was there at first when I thrust her, but when I finally withdraw I find the condom was not on my Penis, but rather on her vagina. The thing is at some point in the middle I withdraw and then get again. I am not sure whether the condom was slipped off at that time or the last time I withdraw. I remember also that after I came, I stayed inside so my penis gets soft. This was three weeks ago. Last week in one morning I find some discharge (a white pus) on my urethra. My doctor gets me docacilline for one week and I never see any pus afterwards. Now I start to worry about HIV. For the last three days I have a headache (Non Stop), a tonsillitis for two days, including today and a very sore throat. I have this very weird itching and burning sensation all over my body for almost three days. My temp is still in normal, I mean no fever (at most 35.6). Please any one access my risk of Contracting HIV from this.

All the best

Since alcohol and sex don't mix and you had a case of Gonorrhea then I would plan on taking an HIV test 13 weeks after possible exposure. Were you tested of Gonorrhea or did the Dr. just give you medication? There will be a need to know because some people do get NSU from Latex.

Tnx rapidrod for your reply...The Dr. told me to take a full STDs panel test on the 3 month, didn't take any test for Gornorrhea. By the way, is Gornorrhea could get by just tocuh with the infected fluid or should the infected fluid should reach the urethra?

I hate when doctors presume anything. It's to late now to know if you had gonorrhea or NSU or some other UTI. Yes get a full panel and HIV test in three months. You also should read the condom link at the bottom of Ann's post. Always remove your penis before you go limp by pinching the condom to the penis when withdrawing.

Please, A little encouraging word will be very much appricated on my risk assesement. Since I may have already exposed to STD, is that mean I will be positive on HIV too? I am gett'n very tired today and the itching is so weird. Is that mean I am seroconverting now? I am really woried.

I know what I have done is something that shouldn't have be done. But I am trying to get some risk assesement here. I came back to this site, becasue ppl like you and ann, andy make a good assese. on these issues. I just want to know how you guys think what was my real risk from the explosure I had from this incident and how possible it is to get HIV from the situation I brought up. I may look for mental health cousoler and to tell you the truth I am seeing some one right now about my alchol abuse. Please comment on that and all the best.

Dear All,

I know I am nagging around you guys, but I just want to ask some question. From the exposure I have last, condom slipped off (Find it hang in half out side and half in her) while having intercourse and I came and stayed some time inside her, and additional unprotected oral sex, do you know any one got infected this way from HIV? I am having very sore throat and I am tonsillies for about 4 days. Is this a seroconversion symptom?

Do we know of anyone that contract HIV from being drunk and not using a condom correctly. Yes.. As for the oral, that isn't a risk. We've already told you to test at 13 weeks. So come back then when you have had your test.

Dear everyone,

I am really sry of I make some of you to be felt nagged, but I need some answers and that is why I came back today again. I took a blood count and all STDs including all Hepatitis and come back negative, I know it is only been 25 days. All The blood test I took is normal. I am waiting for the 3rd month which is almost 2 months away. Shouldn't I see some infection or some other thing with the blood tests I took? What is the probability with the exposure?

Dear all,

Comes back again. I know some of you still not forgiving me for my behavior, not learning from my last experience of mixing being drunk and got sex. But please say some words and I will be gett'n my test at my 12 weeks. My story was that I was with sex worker and the sex is really didn't not last more than 5-7 min, cause I was so in dilemma not doing it. My condom was slipped off, may be because I didn't withdraw or in fact get to her after I came in inside the condom. Any way I find the condom on her vagina outside, almost hanging out. I know I should take a test and been only 1 month from the incident. What is my chance of gett'g HIV from the exposure? Sorry if I am nagging you too much every one.

As you ought to know by now, neither the presence nor the absence of symptoms will ever tell you anything accurately about your HIV status. Only an HIV test taken at the appropriate time will do that. The CDC recommends 13 weeks. Since the overwhelming number of those who are going to seroconvert will do so within 4-6 weeks after an exposure, you can initially test at 6 weeks.

However, assuming you test negative, which is likely since HIV is not easy to transmit from female to male, you would still need to re-test at 13 weeks to have a definitive answer.

Since you were covered for at least a part of the latest incident that further reduces the possibility that you were infected, assuming the woman you were with is HIV+, which you don't know to be so. For what it's worth, nothing you are reporting in the way of symptoms is in any way HIV specific. 

As for symptoms such as the pus you were experiencing, if you have any other symptoms you should discuss them with your doctor. Other STDs are much easier to acquire than HIV, so it might be in order for you to have a full STD panel done.

This mixing of casual sex with excessive drinking is a very dangerous situation. I urge you to either seek professional help or get yourself into a program that deals with alcoholism. So far you have been fortunate and avoided becoming infected, but you can't count on your luck holding out.

Good luck with your test and get yourself some help with the drinking.

Tnx Andy for the words you spare. I do plan to take a test in the next two weeks, I am on the 5th week now from my last incident and also a 5th week abstains from any alcohol beverage, which I am working hard on that part too. After I have seen a pus like thing one day before a couple of weeks and not came back again and I don't have any other symptoms, but thinking of taking STD panel test on the 13th week. I am on Hep. B Vaccine, which I started before this incident and might be on developing antibody for that from the vaccine. Do you think (or any one) that the ELISE test might take that antibody and confuse with HIV anti-body, since ELIASE test is very sensitive? I think the condom covers my tip while I penetrate and only gets in three or four time only. But When I take out there was some fluid on my penis, which might be my semen. Does the virus can go thought my semen, or it should touch my urethra by itself? Beside for other STDs, like gonorrhea, they also should touch my urethra too?

Nabale,

Don't leave your STI panel for thirteen weeks, it's only hiv and syphilis that have a three month window period. The others, such as gonorrhea and chlamydia, can be tested for at ten to fourteen days or sooner if symptoms (like pus) appear.

Hep B antibodies can sometimes cause false hiv results, but only rarely. A positive ELISA result will be double checked with a Western Blot anyway, so don't worry about false positives.

It's highly unlikely you were infected through this incident. The condom most likely slipped off as you withdrew because you were soft by the time you withdrew. This is common - but it's not a risk. In future, withdraw as soon as you cum to avoid freaking yourself out like this.

I'm fully expecting you to test negative.

Dear all,

Tnx for your time again. I have decided to take initial test on next week. But I have this scrotum swelling for the last four days, which causes pain around my groin and my leg. The swelling goes away some time of the day and it comes back. My doctor said there is no such pathology and if it swells it will remain like that most of the time and my swelling could be because I am checking it all the time. I have some kind of bacterial problem in my eyes and gave me Alcon. I have been fatigue all the time. I am almost on my six week from the last incident. I don’t have fever but I have burning sensation all over my body. Can any one feel ARS on the six weeks? I have decided to take initial test on next week, if I got courage. I need some reassurance. What will be my possibility of being tested positive?

Dear All,

I have taken Ag/Ab test on 6th week and came back negative. I also took STI panel and that also gets to be negative. My consoler told me that the antigen test is very accurate one and don't need to re-test for HIV on this incident, but told me to come back for Syphilis and Hepatitis test on the 3rd month. And she said if I am infected at least one of the result should be negative and in most cases the Antibody can be negative and the antigen would be positive but almost never vice-versal.

What do you think Guys? Am I still needed to worry about this incident or should I move on and learn my lesson.

Nabale,

Only in Massachusetts is the window period officially six weeks. If you've tested in Massachusetts, then you're done. If you've tested elsewhere, I have to stick to the official three month window period and advise you to confirm at three months.

Your negative result is highly unlikely to change.

Antigen Test ???
« Reply #66 on: February 20, 2007, 07:58:22 AM »
Dear all

This is my story. I have been involved with sex worker last july and took an antigen test at 40 days (Abbot Antigen test) and the test result was negative. The couslor told me to not worry about HIV regarding this explosure and to be caution for my future. The penetration was lasted for 5-7 min and I found the condom on her vagina when I withdraw, I wasn't sure at what time that happened and was sure when I peneterate her, the condom was there. For the last 2 weeks I have this very weired headache and fever for many day time and I feel fatigue. I search the net and found that only 3 month with anti-body test can really be reliable for HIV test. Is there any chance I got HIV from this. I plan to take a test, but will my Negative test would change to posititive? This is the only explorure I had in my entire life... Pleaz Sugguest...

Nabale,

The antigen test is normally bundled (put together in the same test) with a standard ELISA, so I doubt very much that you only had an antigen test. The antigen test is only relevant in the first few weeks of infection. For an explanation why, go read the Welcome Thread and click on the Testing Lesson. It's all there.

Dear all,

I have been contacted to my counslor, who took my blood to for testing today. she said they use both AG/AB testing, which is not similar to P24. If it is late for antigen then the AB would took it but if it is early for the AB then the AG test will catch. They use this AxSYM HIV Ag/Ab COMBO REAGENT. Now I am not sure about it, but she said the package is catagorized in ELISA. Is this test seems reassuring to you guys...I am sorry if I asked too much question...

All the best and regards,

Of course, the ELISA is an antibody test and it's reliable taken at the correct time.

Dear all,

How everyone is doing? Hope everyone doing great? Long time, but comes again with another fear. As I took the advice and test negative after 6 month 'sobriety' from sex and drinking (Up staining for really), I again find myself putting at risk. The last time risk was on September and tested negative last February and thought I would be more carefully on my way. Exactly 14 days before now, I visit a sex worker (after one day drinking relapse in 7 month), I had a protected sex, and condom was intact. Now I am not worried about that, since condom gives a good protection. But before the act, we had foreplay for 5 min., and she was naked and my underwear was still on, there was a frottage for like 3 min. I know Frottage is not a risk, but When I got home I see fresh blood on my pants, parallel to my penis and when I see it from the inside the blood also penetrate to the inside part of my pants. Now I start to worry again, if that blood can touch my urethra, which could infect me. To my surprise starting from my second week, my gland got swell for 5 days until now and my Doc. gives me Amoxillen for that and I also have pain around my waist and all over my body, My doc. said it is kind of viral symptoms, but I didn't tell the situation I had. All the fears come back again and start to think about testing for it. Dear all, what is my risk from this situation?

Best Regards,

Nabale,

You didn't have a risk. You should know by now that hiv isn't transmitted in this manner. It is transmitted INSIDE the human body, as in unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse. You will NOT become infected through blood on your underware touching your penis. No way, no how. No risk.

Thx ann, you's so cool as usual, I never had this swell in my tonsilles, they are about three and they are definitly swell, this time I didn't touch them even, my Doc told me that and I have pain in every joints and around my waist plus I have this headach come and go, I didn't have fever at all or nothing else, I have a good apitite and good sleep, no sweating. But the tonsilies I have really worried much and I have this pain around my waist every time I try to in hale deep breth. Do you (any one) think I don't even have to test for this one, casuse I already start to cound the 6 week test.

Since my Doc told me that I kind of having Viral problem, and it is the right time to have ARS, specifically the one I have pain around my tonsil to my ear and my waist pain come and go, pain around my leg joints with a white tongue with feeling bitter, and purple blonch under the skin right under to my left eye. Is these symptoms can be taken as ARS at the starting of second week? I am so worry that I am nagging you guys, patient with me please...

I am really sorry to come back and nag you guys, but I just I have too, I have seen a doc too, I really do. It is that the sex worker was on her period that it really mess my mind. What if I had a scare or opening sore thing around my groin area, since the sex was kind of hard. I can be exposed to that,right. Cause I had a swell in my neck nodes and very tender nodes around my waist, both infront and behind, the Doc diagnois that and wouldn't gave me antibiotic , saying that it is a minor viral infection (which also stick me). I have also headach, for like 3 weeks now with the pain around my waist to be persistant. I am in my 5th week now, and think'n of testing this time at 13 weeks. But the worries is kill'n me with a problem to sleep and woking properly in my job (mostly getting confussion). Please tell me the fact, Am I seroconvert?

Thnx Rapid...It is the Genital area thing only. If I had a scare or opening sore around it, since there was a blood around her Genital area too...there will be a possiblity of touching mine or my open sore, right ... that is the one I am really worried about, not the sex or intercouse I had with her...I am with you that condom gives protection and the infection would happen INSIDE the body...it is the open skin or sore touch with her blood

You did not have an open laceration. There are over 900,000 occupational exposures since 1984. Out of those that REALLY had a risk less than 100 were ever infected. That's what 23 years of data. You did not have a minute risk of infections.

A scar is not a vector for transmission.  HIV is transmitted INSIDE the body through unprotected sex or needle sharing with an infected partner. 

You had no risk.  You were protected.

Dear all,

I was serching others ppl profile to find the exper. of having sex with sex worker, protected one, but blood or her period involved. Do you guys/gals ever got such quesions like got protected sex but find out that the other partner is in her period. I got protected sex but possible blood contact with my groin area... I would love to read such tread, if there is rather than nagging you all, thanx in advance...

Dear all,

How is everybody doing? Hope all are ok. I am on my 12 weeks after my last incident. Protected sex with a prostitute on her time of period. From a frottage, while my pants are on, I got fresh blood all over my pants. I didn't see that and I had a protected sex. I didn't see any blood on my condom, but I had a bactrial infection on my groin area, which was on healing process, but kind of open sore at then. I had a swell gland after one week of that date and still persists. I have this itiching for like 3 month now around my leg and a mild fever with groin gland pain. The itiching pesist most of the nights, including my eyes. I feel like with the blood and open sore contact I might contract HIV. I am so worried I am not even think of testing this time, How likly I am that I am seroconvering? All my best to you guys,

Thxn Rapid,

The swelling gland I have around my neck is there for almost 2 and half month. I heard after ARS swelling glands persis until the person will become asymatic. The itiching problem is so high that from scarching my both leg under my knees it got burned and my skin is scarched, some times with blood. The itching is all over my body. THese are the once I really worried about. How long does it take to heal a bactrial infecion around puplic area? It had watery thing and I brust it then I had the sex incident after 3 or 4 days

BRgrds,

You need to see a therapist or other mental health specialist to deal with your concerns.

This is not and never has been an HIV situation. You've had the benefit of many informed response, all of which say again and again that you were not at risk.

You just come back with yet another question as if nothing has been said to you previously.

I don't know what is really driving your concern but I do know addressing it meaningfully is beyond the scope of what we can do in this setting. Do yourself and your life a big favor and get some professional help.

Consider this a warning. You're on the verge of being timed out.
This is not and never has been an HIV situation. Period. End of story.

folks you might all right, may not definiatly an HIV concern.But it is only that really...The open sore I had from the bacterial infection was only about 4 days after it bursts around my public area. It is just that I want to know about. Does it already healed in four days that a blood contact to it may mean nothing at all?

Tnx all

Nabale,

We cannot possibly comment on what you think may have been a form of bacterial infection. You need to see a doctor about that and all the rest of your physical problems.

This is an hiv website. We deal with hiv concerns and nothing you have brought to us is an hiv concern.

Condoms prevent hiv infection. Keep using them and you will avoid hiv infection.

There is nothing more we can do for you here. You're getting close to being given a time out. The following is from our forum posting guidelines, found in the Welcome Thread
