I was prescribed antibiotics- Augmentin Duo Forte to be precise and I developed a severe case of thrush, white ulcers like at the back of my throat.

Since your exposure was a month ago, you can get tested now. You wasted your money on the PCR test; a standard blood test for one tenth the cost would have been sufficient. Anyway, the chance you got HIV from the encounter you describe was close to zero. Just relax; you're overly stressed about this. He said HIV prevelance is very low in females but more in homsexuals here. I finally went in — after researching my symptomsputting two and two together, and talking to my grandmother she had hashis and cancerous nodules resulting in a TT —again for blood work.

Hiv symptoms in men after 4 years
I recommend getting your thyroid tested ASAP. We had only been married for 4 years. When I met him he was facing 6 months in jail for theft. He was a recovering drug addict. He had also used heroin.
I had met him through a mutual friend.Report Abuse. Contact Us. Diabetes Type 1 Type 2 Prevention.
This stopped 1 week later i. This felt something more than a common cold. At about 2 weeks post exposure I started feeling better and I am currently relatively okay. I am still waiting for the result. How accurate is it at this early stage? I have been spending half my day since the incident searching for it on the web. Nothing is specific or certain. I also haven't had sex with my girlfriend since and I am not planning to for at least 6 months.

Furthermore, as I suspect you know, receipt of oral sex is virtually no risk for acquisition of HIV as is condom protected vaginal sex. The ARS does not begin in such a short period following exposure. Typically the ARS begins weeks following exposure and lasts about a week.
On the other hand, the far more common, typical viral illnesses that most people get from time to time do begin soon after exposure.
When you put all of the facts mentioned above together, the chance that you acquired HIV form the exposure you describe is virtually zero. Personally, with regard to the exposure that you have described, I see no reason for concern and no reason for further testing. You did not get HIV from the exposure you described. Dear Dr. According to your saying, is it safe to assume that the symptoms I was having was not a result of ARS? I was told by the physician there, that my exposure was certainly not a low risk one and that the 3-week simple antibody test was not a clear indication of my status nor that ARS could in fact have an impact on the 3-week antibody test result.
I have come to lost any drop of hope I had, and to make things worse, after an exhaustive search online I did find HIV positive people whose symptoms began days after the exposure that were similar to the ones I was having.
My opinion is unchanged. Your expsoure was virtually no risk. Your DUO test will be negative. This site is not a for debate.Report Abuse. Contact Us. Sign in. Type 1. Type 2. General Health. Diet and Fitness. Women's Health.

what chance of ARS after 4 weeks
Just did my WB today and it showed 2 env bands and Am in shock and I can't bring myself to believe these results. Where does a man go from here? Read More. One of the main problems in relying on HIV symtoms themselves is that they are notoriously vague and almost all the symptoms may in fact be symptoms of a different disease.
Can you get symptoms after 5 days following HIV expsoure and infection? Symptoms may occur from 2 to 4 weeks from the day if exposure. Further, 2 days is too quick for symptoms of most STDs, with the uncommon exceptions for gonorrhea and perhaps herpes.
Chlamydia symptoms rarely if ever start sooner than days after exposure. As for anal "discomfort", I'm not sure exactly what it means, but it seems unlikely to be related to receiving analingus, although I suppose it is possible. Accordingly, if STD explains your symptoms, most likely it was acquired from your regular partner.Report Abuse.
HIV Prevention Community. ARS symptoms after 4 weeks? I took an oral Oraquick test 4 weeks and it was negative. Now it's been 6. My question is do ARS symptoms normally appear post-4 weeks exposure?

I'm so stressed. Omg i shouldn't have met him! I'm so anxiously now! Anyway I have to go looking for a job now Being anxious has stopped me from doing that for a few days, I have to go find one! Have a nice day guys and thanks for the helps again. For those of you that are way more knowledgeable then I am on HIV could you tell me if there is a good chance that someone with this symtom is HIV positive.
Also, would this symptom usualy occur early on during the first year of HIV infection or more likely in the late stages of HIV years after infection. I got my very first symptoms ever 20 days after my last sexual encounter unprotected receptive anal. I never noticed symptoms before so does this point to the fact that this is when I got it? Or could I have had it for quite a while and just had an outbreak over the last week during stress?
I have had a flu like symptoms around 9 days after our last intercourse 26 days or first exposure 7 weeks ago. I went to see doctor and given some antibiotic. After taking the antibiotic for 5 days, all these symptoms gone away after a week 2nd week, after last exposure except stuffy nose.
At 3rd week 7 days after last antibiotic after the last exposure, i got acute diarrhea watery tools which only last for few hours. I also feel pain between my eyes if i apply pressure at that area.
Beside, I also feel a enlarge lymph nodes at one side of my neck and 2 under my chin. The headache gone away after 3 days.
The stuffy nose and enlarge lymph nodes still there until now. I have had a night sweat head only after the diarrhea. Some people said ARS can happen few days after exposure.
Is my timeframe fixed in even after the first exposure 9 weeks ago? When should i get tested? Read 6 Responses. Follow - 1.Firstly, I want to give you a quick shout out and some love for your advice on here. Thank you very much. There are a few Dr's, who's resumes state they are HIV specialists, that for the most part give the exact same information that you give.
Clasical ARS is a syndrome with high fever, severe musscle and joint aches and a rash which may not be obvious. It is pretty dramatic. These are just a couple examples, but there are many that are quite similar in regards to them stating that a week test is definitive.
Would you agree that most people that would test positive will test positive between weeks? And that getting a test at that time would be "encouraging? I recognize that the CDC and yourself state that 12 weeks is necessary, and I believe that to be true as well in regards to being better safe than sorry. But testing neg at, say, 5 weeks And if a person gets a neg test, one should feel more confident? Or is that simply too soon and the percentages really arent applicable?
Thanks for your question and kind comment about my charm. I'm pleased to hear other reputable HIV-information Web sites are providing "for the most part the exact same information" that you are finding here.
It really isn't rocket science. Your assessment regarding my recommendation for testing is correct. I have continued to use the CDC published guidelines that HIV-antibody tests taken prior to the three-month mark are not completely definitive and conclusive.
You'd be amazed at the number of anxious wrecks who write in complaining that I shouldn't use three months but rather the older standard of six months for all HIV-screening tests! This is somewhat of a confusing topic because we have developed more sophisticated testing assays third- and fourth-generation HIV-antibody tests, rapid tests, qualitative NAAT RNA, etc.
I've written a blog that discusses this conundrum, but it hasn't been posted yet, as the folks at Body Central wanted me to address a specific topic for my next installment.
But stay tuned; it will eventually be posted. What I can tell you is that I'm in absolute agreement with the other physicians that the vast, vast majority of HIVers will have detectable levels of anti-HIV antibodies in their blood within four to six week following HIV primary infection. However, is that good enough? The consequences of missing a true positive test could be catastrophic. Consequently erring on the side of caution is warranted. I've addressed this topic numerous times before.
