HLA-B27 genes and HIV


Hello there. I had a sexual activty with a sex worker 2nd of Jan. 2023. It was protected vaginal sex and unprotected cunnilingus and blow job. I got testes 14 days after exposure negative. Tested on 21st day negative. And last test in last month which is 63 days after exposure negative. I am not sure about the tests combo ones or single antigen. I got prostatitis after this sex, i am still struggling with that. And i have swollen tonsil on the right sight of my neck for two days.I am HLA-B27 positive. Main issue is which i wonder. Iíve read an article online which says hla-b27 gene can cause slow progression on hiv.
Can someone help me please. I am so worried :-[

Jim Allen:

So, in short, you had no HIV exposure from the sex worker. Being HLA-B27+ makes no difference in how HIV is acquired or the testing window should you ever have an exposure.

Move on with your life.

Here's what you need to know to reduce your HIV risks:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse correctly and consistently, with no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as safe in terms of acquiring HIV still pose a risk for other easier-acquired STIs. So please do get tested at least yearly for STIs, including but not limited to HIV, and more frequently if condomless intercourse occurs.

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms; testing is the only way to know.

Kind regards

Thank you so much for your answer. I just made a big mistake with this activity. After negative test result i had sex with my wife and we have a baby, she was breast feeding during that time thatís why i am so worried. I hope it is as you said.

Jim Allen:
You're welcome, and congratulations on the baby.

Regarding the wife, i'll mention the same thing whenever anyone mentions being in a relationship;

If you engage in condomless sex with your partner, you are obviously at risk of acquiring HIV. In relationships, condomless sex is often based on trust or past test results; however, this does not prevent HIV, so if condomless sex does occur, you should consider testing more frequently.
