Need info on testing / please answer
Dec 28, 2011
(1) Is Oraquick rapid oral fluid HIV test and second or third generation test.
(2) Can I consider my rapid oral fluid HIV test 117 day post exposure conclusive? Incident was broken condom sex with a HIV positive female.
(3) Do I need testing at six months since I had a high risk exposure?
Response from Mr. Cordova
1. See Dr. Bob's answer here.
2. 90 days is conclusive
3. Since you had a known exposure to someone with HIV, you could go for a test at six months, just to be on the conservative side.
I hope this helps.
