Examination Of Hepatitis, Herpes And HIV After Intercourse Was At Risk 4 Weeks Ago?
Hello, I’m sorry I asked again, I was very anxious and stressed, 4 Weeks ago I deal with psk, who I want to ask: 1. Can Hepatitis B and C blood tests be detected after 4 weeks of a risky relationship? 2. Can a herpes blood test be detected after 4 Weeks of a risky relationship? 3. Percentage of HIV testing after Week 4? 4. How long do genital warts usually appear after a risky relationship and can you check through a blood test? Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. Free sex is indeed never justified because it is a gateway for the transmission of various sexual diseases, it can even be a trigger for cancer. The more dangerous, some of these diseases can still infect those who do not have free sex at all. For example, a wife who is infected with HIV from a husband who has free sex, then the wife can transmit her baby children who breastfeed to her. Therefore, we are not allowed to teach and get used to bad behavior like this, because the impact is not only on ourselves, but also on others.
Regarding your question, what you are really asking about is the window period, a period during which a person has actually been infected with a disease, but the disease has not been detected by investigations. So that when examined at that time, he could be said to be negative, when in fact it was positive.
For hepatitis B, the virus can be detected after going through 30-60 days after exposure to the virus. For hepatitis C, HCV RNA tests can be detected after 1-2 weeks of exposure, but for new antibody tests can be positive at weeks 4-10. Herpes can be detected starting in the third week, but most often in weeks 4-6 weeks. But for the initial symptoms can begin to appear from day 2-20 after exposure. For HIV, the window period is from the 4th to the 12th week. After the 12th week, the percentage is above 97-99% for accuracy. And for genital warts, can appear immediately after infection, or can wait for a long time to appear. With respect to all window periods, the recommendation is that you should test after all the periods have passed. You can do one by one, or wait for everything to pass and then do the test. So, hopefully answering your question.
