By merely kissing you cannot get hiv and after all she may not be infected Contact between broken skin, wounds, or mucous membranes and HIV-infected blood or blood-contaminated body fluids. Deep, open-mouth kissing if both partners have sores or bleeding gums and blood from the HIV-positive partner gets into the bloodstream of the HIV-negative partner. HIV is not spread through saliva.

Good Evening, The test results although negative seem to be of concern to you and are provoking anxiety. This is not a good sign. I strongly recommend that you consult a psychiatrist as soon as possible. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for a confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

Fourth-generation tests look for both antibodies AND antigens. Antigens are proteins on the surface of the HIV particle. Antibodies are produced by the immune system in response to the HIV antigens. They fit together like a lock and key. The p24 tests are fourth generation tests as are Tri-Dot and Duo tests. 3rd generation tests take 6-8 weeks (usually clinics say 3 months) and is only test for antibodies. 2nd generation tests take a few weeks longer after infection before they are able to recognise infection. 4th generation tests are accurate 3-4 weeks after exposure, because this is when the p24 antigen becomes high enough to measure. Everyone makes antibodies at slightly different rates so to make sure the tests are accurate they air on the side of caution and say you should get the tests done at 28 days. A negative result at 28 days is good news but it is not conclusive. However, UK guidelines (BASHH, 2014) say that an early negative result at 28 days it good enough for most people (and situations), However, if this was a high risk situation, getting a second test 8 weeks later is recommended to confirm the result.

Does acute HIV infection cause fever of 99.8 for two days only? And does hiv infection cause itchy symmetrical rash for three days only? With no other symptom. No loss of appetite, no swollen lymph nodes, no diarrhea, no mouth ulcers, no muscle and joint pain not fatigue.

Acute HIV infection can present with a wide spectrum of signs and symptoms. Having said that, the most common cause of the symptoms you described is 'not' HIV- it could very well be some other viral fever. What would help is to know your recent unprotected sexual contact, partners status if available. There are tests available to diagnose early HIV and effective treatment options too just in case one needs it.

Sir. Kya 6 mahine me bhi hiv flase negative aata hai 6 month me bhi hiv antibody nahi banti hai.

Sir. Kya 6 mahine me bhi hiv flase negative aata hai 6 month me bhi hiv antibody nahi banti hai.
It means Person is HIV negative because the window period of HIV can be from 10 days to 3 months (The window period is time between potential exposure to HIV infection and the point when the test will give an accurate result. During the window period a person can be infected with HIV and be very infectious but still test HIV negative.)

HIV is transmitted by infected blood, semen or vaginal secretions not transmitted through ordinary contact — hugging, kissing, dancing or shaking hands — with someone who has HIV or AIDS. HIV can't be transmitted through the air, water or insect bites.
