5 Elisa Tests in 17 weeks !!!!!!

Nov 24, 1998

Dear Doctor,

I gave oral sex 17 weeks ago. During this period of time I took Elisa five times and all the results were negative. In addition, i have not experienced any symtom. Please help me, do i have to get retested at 24 weeks or 6 months

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Splitting the difference, 4 1/2 months after exposure is probably long enough, so retesting is not indicated. MH

me again, sorry
Delayed response
