Just in case the question was missed. I put my girl and I in a bad spot when I cheated on her 5 months ago. (Unprotected)I know, I'm a scumbag. followed by some very troublesome symptoms. We have both tested negative via oraquick advanced at 5 months or 20 weeks exactly. When we go for our 6 month test, should we consider 24 weeks 6 months or 180 days? I know im splitting hairs but I'll split them all day to get an accurate result. For both of our safety. And should we be confident with the results so far going into our last test? Thanks my man.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

You can get an accurate HIV test at the three month mark. You were well outside that window. You and your partner are negative.

In health,
