Instant HIV test Conclusive?
Aug 26, 2009

Let me 1st start by saying someone with HIV/AIDS tried to infect me threw a blowjob...Bit their lip and dabbed the tip of my penis with blood! I have been scared to get tested and bought an instant HIV test online that says 99.9% accurate..The test sat on my desk for over a month! I had the balls to test myself today which came back negative...Is this test conclusive?

I must mention the contact with this person was over a year ago.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi,

Assuming it was a reliable home test kit, such as the FDA-approved Home Access Express Test, yes, a negative test a year after a potential exposure would be considered definitive and conclusive.
