ELISA at 9 months
Dec 2, 2011
Dear Dr. Richard, I am very much appreciating your help here, and I sent already a question without a reply. Thus, I am resending you my question.. how conclusive is a negative Elisa at 9 months? After that dangerous exposure with a broken condom with a guy I didnt know, I have had the worst depression of my life, since I had a terrible cold 3 days after exposure (which already was there but got tremendously worse) ... can I be finally happy now with a neg elisa 9 months ? Took the elisa third generation at 9 months, and was negative, do I have any possiblity of having HIV? The incident was in europe, not in Africa, with a european partner so I would like to know if there are chances whatsoever...? Could you please tell me??
Response from Mr. Cordova
This question has been answered many times in the forum. An ELISA test is conclusive at 90 days (or three months). No further testing is needed at this time.
In health, Richard
