Symptoms Vs. test Results
« on: April 11, 2008, 10:20:26 PM »
Hello There........
How can I start? On dic. 07.07 sexual encunter with female w/o protection.
Like 2 weeks later Dic 14, 19, 23, and 31 I remenebred having a rellay bad fever. I went to the doctor because in the head of my penis was really red, and he suggested me to get a Herpes test. Well i did and came back negative. By the 1st week of January i went to a dermatologist and he sent me  Mometasome Furoate Cream USP 15g. Which in two week it finished and it went away. Now I do not have it like before but isn't the same color as before the encounter with the lady.
Well the dermatologist told me to get an HIV test, so I went to the goverment clicnis:
1 test-  42 days after exposure: Oraquick * Mouth Swab* Negative
2nd Test- Feb.20.08 74 days after exposure: Oraquick * Mouth swab* Negative
3rd test- March 13/08 * 96 days after exposure* Mouth swab and one blood from finger= Negative
Since the nurse saw me crying she did both test b/c she figured that i did not beleive the mouth swab only and she took a droop of blood  from finger.
4th Test- Monday April 7th/08------ Droop of Blood from Finger= Negative.
SInce i had those fever, like 2 consecutive weeks, still have visible skin rash, and these test results. I really do not know what to think.
i have lost wait b/c in my mind i just think about hiv.
Anyone  have seen someone changing their results after 17 weeks and 2 days or in other words FOUR MONTHS??
I'm really scared, and don't know what to do. After the test on Monday..Wednesday untill today i fell light head, tired and fell like i want to vomit.
Stress is killing me .....Thank you guys. If i have to pay to get your answer, tell me how and when. Thank you
By the way I also did other stds exams in the same govermental clinic.



HSV 1 IGG AB    3.47  .00-0.89 index Interpretation: positive 0.38
The nurse told me that i just have this type of herpes and it's like getting cold sores, she never said anything about having genital herpes.
Hep B SUR AG negative
Hep B surf AB 558 mIU/mL
5.00 mIU/mL and , 12.0 mIU/mL  Indeterminate
12.0 MIU/ML    Positive.
Hep C ADDY Negative
RPR QUANT  Nonractive
She asked me if i took any shot for Hep amd i remenber in H.S. i took 2 shoots for HEP, but i dont remenber which, i just remenebr that i had to take 3 but i just took 2.

The first herpes test was negative and and how ocme  2-3 months later it's positive?
Or maybe my doctor test me for whatever i had in the head of my penis and was negative, and now i have this herpes, which i dont know if it's 1 or 2, but the nurse told me that it will appear in my lips.
Doctor I'm so confuse. I have read that the body will produce antibodies within the 3 weeks and any test will catch them.
My last test was this monday April 7th 17 weeks and 2 day or 4 months after the exposure and only exposure at Dic 07.07.

Can the Herpes that i have can delay HIV antibodies to show up with oraquick?
is oraquick effective as Elisa?
Than you soo much doctor.

Whatever is going on with you, one thing is certain. Your conclusive hiv test show that you don't have hiv.

Keep working with your doctor. There are other illnesses out there besides hiv - but as this is an hiv website, we only discuss hiv.

You don't have hiv.

Make sure you read the Welcome Thread - paying particular attention to the Transmission Lesson and posting guidelines, before you post again.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
