HIV RNA PCR and Antibody negative at 7 weeks. Can I rely on this? What should I do now? By way you give inspiration to alot of people.
Response from Dr. Frascino
HIV RNA PCR and antibody tests at 7 weeks are very encouraging, but 7 weeks does not equal 3 months. You are 5 weeks short of being out of the woods. To be certain, a 3-month antibody test is all you need. Testing before that time cannot be considered conclusive. Most likely, you are indeed negative, but remember, 3 months equals 12 weeks, and there is no getting around that.
