Response from Dr. Frascino
The sum of your tests (HIV-1 positive, HIV-2 indeterminate followed by a negative confirmatory test and negative repeat ELISA) at 40 days from the time of your last potential exposure indicates that at the 40-day mark you are HIV negative. However, please note HIV-antibody tests taken prior to the three-month mark are not considered to be definitive or conclusive. The HIV-acquisition risk from unprotected insertive oral sex is extremely low. Your 40-day negative test is extremely encouraging. All the odds are definitely in your favor but you still need another test at the 3 month mark. My good-luck karma has been sent!
Good luck Philly-guy.
