The Meaning Of The High Number Of Monocytes During Blood Tests And Its Association With HIV Symptoms?
Hello, I know I am currently in a window period and still in 2 months I have the test: ‘(I have unprotected oral sex and I am the recipient of ejaculation. I’ feel ‘my throat has a swollen KGB, I go to the general practitioner of medicine antibiotics, I ate two days ago, I tried ENT, but unfortunately yesterday it was still on, the ENT doctor’s leave, so I went to the emergency room, I told him my complaint if I felt that there was a KGB under my submandibular, and the IGD doctor said he said there was no enlargement. big, it looks and feels right, but if you want to be more certain about ENT Monday because they have tools that can check inside. I’m kind of calm, and I don’t go to ENT. The medicine from the first doctor is still taking me. in other hospitals, and the results are like this: – HB 17.8 – Leukocytes 10,800 – Lymposit 29 – Monocytes 13 (referral 2-10) – PDW 9- Hematocrit 54- Erytrosit 6., after I saw my Monocyte outside the reference number 2-10 Meaning there really is HIV infection in my body huh? I do not know my partner is HIV or not, and ejaculation yesterday in the mouth. I only feel the existence of the KGB, which will gradually disappear if I focus on being quiet. I felt my chin grow as my double chin dropped, but there was no pain in that part. I admit sorry. But according to doctor 13 monocytes is it already considered dangerous? Or can the effects of antibiotics and corticosteroids affect?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you need to know in advance that your risk of contracting HIV if you are only doing oral sex is actually very, very small. The risk of HIV transmission through oral sex is the smallest among other types of sexual intercourse (anal sex is the highest, followed by vaginal sex, then oral sex). The risk of transmission to receptive parters (people who enter their mouths) is 0-0.04%. If there are no injuries at all in your mouth or throat cavity during intercourse, then the possibility of transmission becomes very very small, almost nonexistent.
Window period or window period of HIV infection depends on the examination methods available and you want to use. If you use a fourth generation HIV test, the results are very accurate if done 4 weeks after risky behavior. You can try to consult with your doctor to do this examination if it is past 4 weeks after the sexual intercourse.
Regarding the increase in monocytes, actually a slight increase in the reference value (especially if not followed by a significant increase in leukocytes), does not show any significance. High monocytes (or called monocytosis) can occur due to several causes, including chronic infections (such as tuberculosis, endocarditis), other infections such as syphilis, mononucleosis, malaria, malignancy, autoimmune diseases, or other diseases (such as sarcoidosis, storage disorders fat), etc. In these diseases will be found a significant increase in monocytes accompanied by clinical symptoms that support. The presence of monocytosis cannot confirm the diagnosis (must be supported by other tests) and is not a major sign of HIV infection.
If indeed you feel your lymph nodes are enlarged, you can try to see your surgeon so that you can do a physical examination directly and if indeed any enlargement is found, a supporting examination can be done to look for the cause of the enlargement (for example, a fine needle biopsy examination).
Henceforth, you should avoid risky behaviors such as unprotected sexual relations (condoms). Unsafe sexual relations not only risk transmitting HIV, but also other sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, hepatitis B, and so forth.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
