|Just another try

Dear Dr. Bob,
Since 2 months I am visiting your website and I admire very much the positive energy that you give all of us.
A single very low exposure risk (protected sex with a sex worker), followed by a 4 weeks p24 and HIV antibodies negative result. The doctor tells me that the next test should be at 6 months from exposure.
What about the significance of the test result and would a 3 months test be enough to forget about this 'one night affair'?
Thanks a lot and count on my donation.
Un abrazo desde España

If the latex condom was used properly and did not fail, the "protected sex" would indeed be protected and your HIV risk would be essentially nonexistent. Your four-week negative antibody and p24 antigen tests are very encouraging. A single test at three months would be considered definitive for your one-night affair.
Good luck (although I doubt you'll need it).
