HIV Testing - ELISA

Jul 29, 2010

Hello doctor..... I have sex with condom last 19th December 2009..... I have finished my testing in 161 days after 19th December 2009 and my test result is negative...... Did I need more test?

Response from Dr. McGowan

Thank for your post.

Since it has been over 5 months since your sexual encounter (and you used a condom) there is no need for further testing for that episode.

Keep using condoms!
