I received oral sex. A person sucked my penis less than ten seconds that time I don't know he was hiv positive after two months I suspect that he was positive. I m sure he is not on treatment because he was cool at our house. And then went to test luckily that was negative this test was after 70 days of exposure. Then I took western blot p24 antigen that was also negative viral load not detected or bellow the range of assay. But my cd4 cells are very poor they are only 174. They make me more tensed. I am worrying and scarring. This test was on 84 days all report were negative but cd4 dropped. Then I took Elisa test from hospital after 93 days that was also negative. And Dr. said that cd4 don't matter. Your report is negative this is good thing. I am smoking from 12 years is this cause of low cd4 or bacterial problem which I face from one year in my neck. Your guidelines said that three months test is conclusive. Is mine also conclusive? And also received oral is low risk activity. Is m I safe I do not have hiv please tell I am so worried. Is stress cause of low cd4 because on that days I was so much scared and stressed. Still I am in so much stress. P24 antigen (0.11) negative at 84 days after exposure . After four months I have pimple on my shoulder they are only 2 one side and one pimple other side. I mild rash inner bicep. I m always thinking negative thoughts always means all time. At this time my situation is very bad.

Hi

It’s a good sign that your HIV tests have been negative. There are many conditions that cause the symptoms you have been having or the change in CD4. The only way to find out if you have HIV is by going for a HIV test.

We find that the 4th generation antigen (p24)/antibody HIV test shows really good accuracy by 6 weeks but that we recommend a follow up test at 3 months just to make sure. Given this your HIV test at 3 months would be conclusive; no more HIV testing is needed.

The other thing is that we do not see HIV passing when someone is receiving oral sex. HIV is not in the saliva so would not pass that way. I would suggest following up with the health care people you have been seeing to see what could be causing this problem for you.

I am confident in saying that it does not look like HIV is causing the problem given your testing history and results.

Let us know if this did not answer your question or if you have any more questions or concerns.
