Testing at 1 year?
Dec 3, 2001

Dr. Feinberg,

I have read some experts believe in order to be 100 sure one is not infected they must test at 1 year post exposure. I tested negative at 6 months and my 12 month date is fast approaching. What is your recommendation? Test again for re-assurance or is it unnecessary?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

I think 6 months is sufficient.
