0n 4/28/12 at 10:30pm. I was kissed at the bar my a Transgender. I had a small cut inside my lower lip. He lied to me making seem he was a women. It was dark, second, he/she was Hiv positive. I am worried because she could have had a cut to in which rubbed against mine or even bleeding gums if she brushed he teeth hard.
I started PEP on 5/1/12 At 9:30 almost a 72 hour mark OF this HIV+ person. 3 days later took a cocktail of PEP kaletra and Truvada and still on it for 28 days. If I do the PRC by DNA Test or the Naat test here in the Us which apparently detect bewtween 14 days to 28 days of exposure. WOULD it be pointless because of TRUVADA and KALETRA and HIV med would alter the test giving a FALSE NEGATIVE even if I am positive??
Some patients that have HIV are undetectable because of the medication.
Is this my case? and if it is, after completing my 28 days course of tablets,when ca i test?
The thing is this person is HIV positive a french kissed me 3 times, each time for 3 minute
The risk of having HIV via saliva (kissing) is extremely low, unless there was visible blood present. Any person can definitely taste presence of any blood even while kissing someone. Since you probably did not directly observe or taste the blood, your risk of having HIV is extremely low, and there was no indication for HIV prophylactic therapy.
Treatment with anti HIV medications does reduce any possible HIV replication, and hence getting the HIV tests during active therapy, does not provide accurate results. Once the therapy has been completed, the HIV test has to be repeated at 6 weeks, 3 months and again at 6 months after the suspected exposure.
A negative test at 6 month will conclude that you do not have HIV.
