I had unsafe sex with hiv± partner, can i test positive later ?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello Sir,

I had an unprotected vaginal sex with a hiv positive partner,

I was unknown about her status but later I came to know that she was hiv positive since 4/5 years ago,

I was shocked and worried knowing that she was positive,

I asked her about ART (Anti Retroviral Therapy) medication whether she takes regularly or not,

She answered me that she has been taking ART since 2/3 years ,

But, still I've a doubt on her that whether she takes medication regularly on not

and then,

I got tested through NGOs clinic on 4th and 8th weeks after exposure and I got negative result on both test.

-Should I still be worried ?

-Can I test positive later ?

-Accuracy of 3rd generation antibodies test after 8 weeks?

-Accuracy of Rapid HIV 1/2 test at home ?

    You should test at 12 weeks after exposure to be certain.

    Hi suresh 

    I think you need to wait for minimum 6 months before you repeat the HIV test again ...you can try doing HIV Western Blot test if you have the option next time after 2 months .

    there’s medicine you can take after exposure (within 72 hours) to help stop infection! I think it’s called PrEp
