So I had to do another test at week 6. This was when the test picked up the virus. I will try to educate people here with the little i learnt, maybe it will help for those who wants to learn.
We have two different types of hiv test kits. One test for both antigen and anti bodies this one picks the virus as early as two weeks, and results comes out withing days to a week, with a window period of a month(meaning by a month and your result shows negative then you are free). The other checks for anti bodies alone and this one picks the virus withing a month for few people, mind you for few people and most people at three months as that is when the body might have produced enough antibodies for it to be detected. And the latter is what we use here in Nigeria, where finger is pricked or blood drawn and the result comes out within 15-20minutes.
The bad thing here is we are not well informed about the window period and seroconversion( period when one is turning from negative to positive and takes as long as 3 months in most people and 6 months in some, meaning your result might show negative yet you are positive) and all that, I advise you google this, due to this lack of information people go about thinking they are negative and go about infecting others, until the sickness has progressed to a later stage where they start falling sick.
My piece of advice is ensure you use condom( and pray not to be unlucky like me, the girl who gave me has no idea she’s infected ) if condom breaks there’s what they call PREP, it’s a medication used within 72 hours after exposure to prevent you from catching the virus if your partner is positive.


bro kindly take your drugs regularly.
is not the end of the world, Hiv is not a new thing, if you have 0 virus load you can marry and give birth to hiv -ve child so you have nothing to lose.
scientific breakthrough is not far.

I felt like sharing so others will learn, this might also create awareness as I feel a lot isn’t done to educate people about the insidious HIV.

I will try to be as brief as possible. Sometime this year I had a fling with a girl, I have always been careful as to use protection when I ever I have sex, unluckily for me my condom broke, I realized this immediately and pulled out, got a new condom and continued, wasn’t up to three weeks or so I fell ill, malaria like symptoms and all, during that same time I started having some hiv symptoms like.

Had to go for a test it came out negative, this was around week 4 or so. Despite this test I knew I was positive, I just had the feeling I was, the doctors and lab attendants were just playing it down, no disrespect but most lab scientists here have really poor knowledge on HIV test kits and all.

The hospital you went to, are to be blamed.


whenever someone is asked to do Hiv test, and he/ she test negative the logical thing is to ask to repeat the test again after 3 month.

Please check your result very well, the comment will be "Not reactive for Hiv 1 and 2 antigen". Hiv results don't come out as positive or negative.

Rapid diagnostic test kit are used for screening, ELISA method is for confirmatory. ( ELISA test results can be ready within 12 hrs if you can pay for it) .




Wishing you all the best.

Your mental state might even make you develop the symptoms. You have to go to a [b]great [/b]hospital, conduct a series of tests and take the result as real.

Nairalanders ehn. Una no go kill person. See it requires just one exposure to get this n immediately d codom broke definitely it was in the v jay, even if he pulled out immediately you must have had at least one thrust to know the condom broke. So the guy might be saying the fact.
And about the test level I know of someone who tested positive at week 11 after doing series of test with all coming out negative. About 10 test o withing 11 weeks lol. This one na true story. I pitied the girl. She gt d feeling but last last result show positive. So no go about misleading people with that four weeks crap. Most people go just Dey treat malaria up and down.

What are you on about? Who doesnt know it requires one exposure to get HIV?? I am saying if he was using a condom and it busted immediately he pulled out, it is extremely hard to get infected in that manner. HIV is really difficult to get. Go and read the facts and then quote me.

Your one exposure could be having sex without protection.

Some people are that are claiming Mr Smart and blaming OP for not keeping his dick in one place are even carrying the virus unknowingly to them.

OP just take your immune booster and eat healthy, please don't spread the virus but the message.
You might even live longer than those who think they are saint because they don't have the virus.

Don't have sex before marriage.
Do not do it.

If you like a girl, promise marriage. Inform the family, do courtship.
You will be directed to do blood test, genotype test.
All these are done by serious people about to marry.
If you doing guy because of HIV, blood test, what about genotype AA, AS stuff? You born a child that is SS by mistake. This is sickle cell. The child will be sick his whole life. All because you refused to do blood test.
I have a friend that died of SS. I have a 42year old cousin having SS.
That one is still manageable. Nobody has AIDS in my whole family, father and mother's side, cousins, me and my kids.

You will have sex the rest of your life with your wife. JUST WAIT and do all the steps properly.
Human being grows from baby to adult to old age.
Your parents had you when they had their sex.
You now don't want another baby to have his chance by using contraceptive to BLOCK the formation of baby
If they BLOCK the way to heaven after death, will you like it?
This is why contraception is also wrong. Stop blocking the formation of a baby. Let the baby enter this world
When you too die, your way to heaven will not be blocked. Or you think God cannot block the way also?
If you aren't ready for a baby, THEN DON'T have sex.

Now you have got Aids, who's fault is it?
Your fault.

Sorry for your situation. Any idea where one can get PReP? God is your healer. Just dont tell anyone around you. We are a society that discriminates till tomorrow.

And please the government should try to create enough awareness as this virus is so common I know about this since I became positive. Please no one should ask me what my symptoms were as no two person can have the same symptom, if you think you might have been exposed go for a test.
From what I know, the condom breaking alone shouldn't necessarily cause HIV. Did you have a bruise or wound around your privates and did she? Were you rough? Have you considered other places you could have contracted the virus e.g from your barber?
