interpreting results and risk?

Mar 12, 2012

i received unprotected oral sex from a sex worker 19 days ago. So i went for a HIV 1 & 2 AB/p24 antigen DUO test 16 days after possible exposure. the results came back negative and thank god for that but i was worried about my relatively high level of reactiveness. reactive rate 0.594 index: <0.9 non reactive, 0.9-1.0 borderline, >1.0 reactive HIV antibodies: negative so is this normal or am i just being a hypochondriac and does the result 'non reactive' mean i dont have the antigen? im 20 yrs old btw thank you for your time

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there- Nonreactive is just that. You are negative. Take care.
