I had unprotected sex four weeks back. Later on, I cross checked with the girl, and she stated she do not have any disease. But still, I am worried. After three weeks I have checked with P24 antigen test, the test value is 0.0, and it is non-reactive. By the fourth week (28th day) I have checked with HIV 1 and 2 antibody test and final results are non-reactive. HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) 1/2 P24 combo test CMIA method - 1.8, which is reactive. Immunochromatography method non-reactive and flow through immunochromatography non-reactive. What could be the reason for CMIA (Chemiluminescent Microparticle Immuno Assay) test to show as reactive? By considering these tests, what would be the accuracy of HIV status as negative? I have throat infection alone for the last two weeks. Is that a symptom of HIV? What is the early conclusive test that I can go with?
It could be false positive. You have more than 95 percent chances of being negative. Sore throat may or may not be a symptom of HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). Go for western blot test and HIV RT- PCR (reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction) test to confirm the status of HIV.
