30 days ? How definitive ?

Jan 4, 2011

After 30 days...I tried the AWARE Oral HIV1/2 test mouth swab and tested negative. A day adter I went to AIDS clinic and they did this Oraquick (finger prick) test and also negative. Then, they took2 vials of blood for further HIV test (Confirmation ?) and for syphillis.

How definitive are those test ? I also plan to do 3 months test afterwards....can I woooo-hoooo now ? or just partial wooo hooo ?

Response from Dr. Frascino


A negative 30-day HIV test is encouraging, but not definitive. So no WOO-HOO yet. You'll need to wait until the three-month mark for that.

Good luck!
