The Period Of Transmission Of HIV / AIDS Infection?
Good afternoon, I have a question. How many hiv months can be formed and can be known with certainty and accuracy? My question is related to the following: I used the services of a psk a week ago because honestly I could not stand and work away from my wife, after ejaculating I checked my condom was torn because it had expired a long time. Suppose the psk is hiv +. Can my HIV status be known within 1 month after the last ml? And is that accurate?
Hello Defra Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
To make sure you are infected with HIV or you don't need a screening test for HIV, and this screening can be done by taking a blood or urine sample from the patient. The following tests or screening can be done to find out HIV infection, namely:
Antibody test: This test is done to determine the presence of antibodies or your body's immune system against the HIV virus. If you are infected with HIV, this test will give you a positive result. This test is an accurate test, and can usually be detected within 3-12 weeks because it takes a high number of antibodies in the body to be detected. Therefore, this antibody test is detected at most 3 weeks after infection occurs. If the timing of infection is assumed when you have risky sexual intercourse, within 1 month if you notice the infection will generally be detected. However, this time can be different for each person. Antigen test: The antigen test aims to detect p24, a protein that is part of the HIV virus. The antigen test can be done 2-6 weeks after the patient is infected. If the screening result is positive, usually the doctor will recommend a series of other tests. This examination aims to see the level of infection and spread of the virus in the body and can determine the right type or method of treatment.
One of the ways of transmitting HIV infection is through risky sexual intercourse, or if you have sexual intercourse with a person who has HIV or PLWHA (People with HIV-AIDS), the risk of contracting HIV will be higher. However, not everyone who has sexual relations with PLWHA can be infected. The following are various factors that can increase the risk of contracting, namely:
Having sex without using safeguards such as codoms. There are lesions or wounds in the genital area. Having sexual intercourse with people who have advanced HIV. Having sex with people who have sexually transmitted diseases (STIs) If PLWHA does not take HIV drugs, the risk of contracting HIV will be even higher. To do this test, it should be done in a trusted laboratory or hospital, and consult the HIV screening test to a doctor.
