100 days after the low risk exposure. Tested NEG with Rapid HIV test from free clinic (oral quick). CAN I WOO HOO DR.bob?
Response from Dr. Frascino
Hello NY Democrat,
Well let's see. You've probably read at least a gazillion times that I consider a three-month negative test following a low-risk exposure to be definitive. So you rapid-tested negative at 100 days and, um, seven days per week, four weeks per month for three months . . . . Yep! The math checks out. Your test is WOO-HOO-able in my book. Just for completeness I'll mention that negative rapid tests outside the window period are considered definitive and conclusive, but positive rapid tests need confirmation by standard serology before being considered definitively positive.
Stay well. Stay Democrat. Go Hillary!
