It’s 6-8k. It’s usually done in standard labs(what state are you in). It’s called antigen/antibody test. I don’t think government hospital does it, even if they do it’s going to be a federal teaching hospital which does hiv serology( not sure if this one checks for antigen). Sero negative means negative, a test at weeks 6 is very likely not to change. But it’s always advisable to confirm at month 3 if you think you were really exposed.
Rivers. So if I do the fourth generation there's no point doing any test again or I should just wait and do the fourth gen test at month 3. Oh I did my hiv test at a state teaching hospital

State will just give you the normal unigold antibody test. Serology is done in teaching hospitals. Fourth generation antigen test when done you won’t have to wait for 3months to confirm. But even after doing it I will still advise you do the antibody test after three months never the less. If you can afford it do the antigen test. The sores on the lip are you sure it’s not the harmattan?
Nevertheless you don’t have HIv, so don’t be scared

Syn lab yes they do it. But you should know antigen disappears after sometime. So if you are going to do the antigen own you shouldn’t wait till next month as it might not be reliable then. All the same you welcome. Glad I could help.

Well I think I have to drop this here cos it will be ungrateful of me if I didn't. I have done the last test after 6 months 10 days. And I am HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, H pylori, VDRL free. I really appreciate you all. I did the test On the above on the 30th of January and everything came back negative. May God heal those that have been affected. Stay safe and healthy
Congratulations Sir.

i understand how u feel,my situation is similar to urs,i had an exposure since june last year,i had all the symptoms but i have been testing negative , i did the test again on friday,still negative,but i still feel movement in my head and body,and joint pain,especially around my knees. When last did u go for test?
Yours could be staph. Go and do urine MCs first. What week did you start noticing symptoms after exposure? But please explain that movement in body stuff. Cos I've been having movements like vibrations in my muscles both my hand, leg and my mouth sometimes. Same with yours?

Johnames:
are u sure,because i had all the hiv symptoms,i have done syphilis test,it was negative,but i have not done staph test.Also had this severe sharp pain around my pelvics,pain around my chest,and serious movement in my scrotum,that was around june to october,but now,am experiencing movement in my body,and joints pain
Movements in body is usually staph associated( from what I have read)
I had more than hiv symptoms, check my post you will see my WBC is low(which indicates low immune). Hence making me vulnerable to a lot of sickness like mouth sores and chills. This has been going on for more than 9montbs now. Hiv still negative, the lady that did the last test was telling me to come next month for a regular check as my symptoms are likely hiv. And she was even telling me stories of people who took so long to test positive.

Good evening. Please I just noticed this very small lump under my chin. Like inside. Its not visible. I can only feel it and it moves when I touch it. Coupled with internal heat. Is that the swollen node you people talk about? Tell me no please

I had diarrhea, sore throats, rash’s, even treated malaria and typhoid 5 times in 6 months with injections and IV. Relax bro. I had a friend that even slept with and hiv patients raw for straight 1 week , he got to know she was positive when her hand bag fell n he saw he drugs. He had this anxiety too, did 17 hiv test in 9 months , this is more than 1 year now n he is still negative
Hello, have you tested again recently after that incident or you've moved on totally?

I know this sounds like an old cliche and almost impossible but... don't think too much about your situation. I wouldn't wish the mental breakdown and depression i'm going through right now on anyone.
Try not to go down this tunnel of mental torture.

and creating separate topics won’t help you. Don’t go down this tunnel. You only going to wreck yourself psychologically and financially. As I type now I am even having that internal heat. Just go see a doctor. No one here can help you.

Have you seen a doctor about the internal heat? If yes, what's causing it? Cos I went to a doctor today and he prescribed few drugs for me. It was after I left I saw that stuff
