Testing Results
May 31, 2011

8 months ago I had unprotected sex one time with someone whose sexual history I did not know. I was tested (ELISA) at 3.5 months and 7.5 months after the incident. Both test came back negative. Are those conclusive results that can be trusted? Thanks!

Response from Dr. McGowan

Yes, that is all the testing you will need for that exposure. Go forth and BE SAFE!


is there a vaccine for hiv?
Thank You Dr. McGowan
