How long do people have to wait to get tested for HIV after sleeping with some one?
Between 07-2005 and 11-2005 I was having sex with this girl, well she is my ex and she had a boyfriend when we were fooling around. So in 02-03-2006 I went to get tested for STDs and HIV and everything came out ok but now I'm asking myselft should I've had waited longer to get tested or was that long eough, what do you think???
Thats long enough. I am not 100% sure, but I believe tests can detect HIV after 6 weeks.
Its about 1-3 month. You can go after 2 weeks also but I would suggest to wait more.
your good. you have nothing to worry about
should show up after 6 months, but could take longer depending on your body. Hope you're okay though and please use protection one of my friends from highschool got it from unsafe sex, it is more common than you'd think.
the HIV virus can lay DORMANT in your system for up to 10 years, so get tested regularly! whether you have symptoms or not!
HIV can lay latent in to body for 15 or more years i would get tested every 3 months or whatever your doctor recommends
good question, but I think it's about 6 weeks after you stop having sex. So it sounds like you waited a sufficient amount of time. Be careful, use condoms and good luck!
at least 30 days. they have new mouth swab tests and it comes back in 20 min wait time. some swabs get sent to a lab and take 2 wks. then practice safe sex or abstinence. also get re-tested in 3 months! the best bet is to call your local health department or clinic!!
usually 3 months after n then 6 motnhs after tht to confirm it.
Current HIV test are able to be conducted within days of infection. So you might have waited in vain, I would suggest contacting the local free clinic. Free clinics test for HIV anonymously and freely (or a small suggested donation). Do it as soon as you can, if you have a great friend bring him along for moral support. If the test comes negative, thank you lucky starts and use protection all the time, its not worth being sick for a few minutes of pleasure. If the test comes back positive, remember that is no longer a death sentence, the clinic might also offer group support and information. Check on line for your local free clinic.
there is this new test that swipes youre mouth take it 1 day and in 2 weeks or less the results will be back, its so simple and quick i use to take them for the hell of it, just to give myself a pat on the back, cause i know of a lot of ppl who has it, when you find out that you do not have it. start protecting yourself, men dont realy care they are in it for the moment, we need to be concern of not the good feeling it gives you at the time (sex) but the pain and heartachs that it will bring latter if you turn up hiv postive, stop spreading ur legs and not protecting that precious and only pussay that you ahve, not man want hiv for dinner. neither should you. get tested and protect yourself from this happening to u again.ps sex aint fun and pleasurable if you are living with hiv or aids, think before you lay down with someone who may not be clean or even tell you if he has it,
I Worked in a LAB after retiring from a major Airline. Worked there for six years. We had wives bring in their husbands for test, and vice versa. Of course they would pay cash instead of placing a claim on their insurance. An immediate test is worthless. HIV may not devolpe for ten to fifteen years. There are many people out there with HIV, but full blown AIDS may not develope until many years later, if at all. But sooner or later it will show up. Just remember it is a "dealth sentence" .
You should go get a baseline test,to see if you are infected or not from previous girl friends before this one.
Answer below from the US government National Institutes of Health
you should check after 3-6 months later; however, it could take longer for it to show in your body. You should definitely go back to the dr. office and ask them to retake another HIV test b/c u r worried. I suggest you do go back for blood work for HIV
Back in the 1980's the tests used to test for antibodies against the virus. It takes anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months to develope antibodies against HIV. This is why some people used to have false negatives, because they wouldn't wait 3 months or they would have sex with other people before the end of the 3 months.
