[Question #4782] Hiv conclusivity

27 months ago
Hello doctor 
I know this has been asked before but I just wanted to add the last sentence. I had cunning less and sex and the condom broke and the girl had her period (apparently her last day) and I’m afraid. How concolusive is pcr HIV qualitative test at days 15, 27,33 all undetected as well as hiv1&2 combo p24 antigen at days 22,24,27,33,35(on day 33 at two different labs) non reactive? Also to mention that I have tested the girl after 2 weeks of having sex with herand she was negative. My main concern is that maybe she caught the virus a week earlier and it didn’t show in the test. 
Now it has been 37days. I have symptoms of achy shoulder joint, soar throat and nausea. I’m not sure if the nausea is from anxiety 
Thank you

Did you think the answers would change if you asked a second time? If you were thinking you might get a different reply from Dr. Hook, you would not. We never disagree on these issues, never. He would agree with every word I said last time. Re-read that thread in both my initial response and my replies to your follow-up questions, and concentrate on every word. Do not ask anything else that has already been answered, OK?

Dear doctor,
I did not expect a different answer. I was actually asking you ( Dr Hunter)As I said in the message that I added the last sentence which were my symptoms and also asking about the accuracy of qualitative results. 
Thanks again

Since your test results were conclusive, no symptoms you have can possibly be due to HIV.  HIV doesn't cause joint pain; and it can cause sore throat (along with fever and other symptoms) only in the first 1-2 weeks after catching it, not 5 weeks later.

Reallly, mellow out. Your tests prove you are not infected. Do your best to stop worrying!
