  • Hiv testing window period

    Hi, I have an encounter with msg lady on 23/10/2018. We both naked, no intercourse. I lick her nipple, suck her boobs,and she do handjob to me. No blowjob, but I think she got her vaginal fluid on hand when blowjob me. 5 days after the exposure, started having sore throat, mild fever. On off mild fever for abt 1 month I would say.

    Did HIV ag/ab cmia test on the following dates:
    1. 13/11/2018 (20 days)
    2. 21/11/2018 (28 days)
    3. 4/12/2018 (41 days)
    4. 18/12/2018 (55 days)
    5. 16/1/2019 (84 days)

    All 5 tests are non-reactive. Do I need further testing?

    No, you do not. Your tests are conclusive. And your risk is essentially zero to begin with.

          After the 5 tests, about last week (119 days post exposure), I'm having the second sore throat. (First one is about 5 days after exposure) Should I retest?

            No. There is no need to retest. You have done multiple tests which are negative and your initial risk was virtually negligible.

            There are many other causes for a sore throat including common infections such as viral upper respiratory tract infections.

              I read that one of HIV symptoms is persistent sore throat. Been having this sore throat for more than a week now, even after antibiotics.

                Not all sore throats are necessarily due to a bacterial infection. It is difficult for us to advise you on your sore throat without physically evaluating you, so I would suggest you come down to the clinic for a consult and physical examination.
