I wanted to know how many people who acquire hiv seroconvert longer than 12 weeks.Does the USA administer tests based on the NAT as well as elisa?.I heard that Nat detects the proteins linked to hiv before the antibodies. I tested negative at 10 weeks.Does that mean I am absolutely negative because if no antibodies were found there should have been the protein which would have been detected by NAT. My blood was tested at the best medical institute in dallas. should I worry.
