This is Dr. David
your risks for HIV are super super small
about 0.5 to 1 in 10,000 risk
you can see here
you can get a DNA or RNA HIV PCR test at 10-20 days post exposure to give accurate information of your HIV status.
but I bet your testing will be negative.
take a look at the link I included.
don't be anxious
I have to see a patient right now
I'll be back in 2 minutes.
thank you Dr David,
sorry about the delay
I am back.
it's just that the apparent degree of hiv among ts escorts is alarmingly high, according to certain sources, and while I don't believe I had any cuts or sores in my mouth, or hers (there was also a small bit of kissing) and the briefness of the exchange (literally seconds before I came to my senses) I'm still incredibly anxious. I've also heard the multiplex 10 day hit test can produce a lot of false negative results.
I know you are anxious.
the data I quoted you is for unprotected oral sex with an HIV positive person .
so that low 0.5 to 1 in 10,000 chance is with an HIV positive patient.
so the risk is very small, even if the partner is HIV positive.
does that make sense?
makes total sense
so your risks are super low.
I bet your HIV testing will be negative.
don't let your anxiety get out of control.
hang in there.
let me know if you have other questions.
the accuracy of the multiplex 10 day test and the potential for false positives please?
Three samples tested positive initially, resulting in an initial false-positive result frequency of 0.4% and an assay specificity of 99.6%.
also, i have a girlfriend. I will obviously be avoiding any intercourse but is there a chance I could give her any other potential std's through kissing or non sexual bodily contact?
so excellent testing.
multiplex also tests for hepatitis as well.
oral sex can increase risks for herpes virus and HPV virus as well.
these are invisible viruses which can be spread and can stay formant for years
so you could spread herpes virus or HPV virus.
if the results at 10 days and 28 are negative, should I bother with the 3 month test?
lastly, can I spread herpes or HPV with mouth to mouth kissing only?
you don't have to get the 3 month HIV antibody test if the DNA PCR test is negative.
yes, you can spread HPV and oral type 1 herpes virus with mouth to mouth kissing.
HPV is very common sexually spread virus.
some estimates that 95-98% of all collage age adults in the USA have HPV virus
how soon can I be tested for that?
very easily spread through kissing and sex.
but good news is that 90% of adults with normal immune systems can clear HPV virus out of their system in 2 years.
for women, they get HPV testing when they get routine pap smears.
there are no approved HPV tests for men.
if you have anal sex, there are new anal pap smear testing to check for HPV in the anal area.
how do I know if I have it then, currently no issues with any part of my body?
for men, there are no good test for HPV.
you could develop genital warts which can be a sign of HPV.
just to confirm the dan pcr test, is that the 10 day or 28 test?
lastly again, are genital warts treatable?
that HIV DNA PCR test can be used 10 days after exposure.
genital warts are treatable and in adults with normal immune systems, they can go away in 2 years by themselves in 90% of patients.
good luck to you
