      Thanks Dr Zeng,

      i went and did the 4th gen hiv test and the rapid syphilis test today (6th week) robertson walk , both came out negative. Will retest the rest of the stds at 8th week

      Is the rapid syphilis test as acurate to the lab tests ? i understand that the syphilis rapid test kit can pick up both the igm and igg Antibodies

        Hi Paranoid,

        It's not as accurate but it's sufficient for screening.

            Hi Dr Zeng,

            i have 2 lymph nodes swelling behind my ear and neck on my left side from yesterday, it should be unlikely that it is due to HIV and other stds ?

              Hi Paranoid,

              It is highly unlikely. However, this forum is not an avenue for diagnosing medical conditions. Do see your doctor if you are worried.

                Hi Dr Zeng

                Noted with thanks, will see a doctor soon if it gets worse.

                I did another round blood test including HIV Lab test,Syphilis, HSV1 and 2 ,Hepatitis B and C on week 7. the results is negative for all except for hsv1 , can i be pretty confident that it will be the same at the 3 month mark if there arent any more exposures ?

                  Hi Paranoid,

                  Yes, I'm pretty confident the results will stay negative at the 3 month mark as well.

                      Hi Dr Zeng,

                      i saw an article saying truvada may inhibit virus replication of Hepatitis B . may i ask , after taking 1 month of pep , is it likely that the formation of the surface antigen of hepatitis B can be delayed hence a longer window period?

                        Hi Paranoid,

                        It may but there is no strong data that indicates PEP can delay seroconversion of both Hepatitis B and HIV.

                        You should really move on.

                        Regards

                          Dear Dr,

                          I had received a handjob at Oct 2020, was worry, therefore did blood test of syphilis and hiv 94 days later. All are negative results from dsc clinic. Will that be conclusive? Do I need to retest? I never test chlamydia and gonorrhoea. Will that be fine? Thanks. I wanna move on.

                            Hi,

                            It is conclusive. You should move on.

                            The risk of chlamydia and gonorrhea is negligible without any penetration/oral sex.

                            Regards

                              Dear Dr Zeng,

                              Can i say I am safe? No further testing needed?

                              Actually can I ask, actually handjob from others, by right do I even need to test?

                              Thanks.

                                Yes please move on.

                                No risk at all for HIV transmission from handjobs.
