Response from Ms. Southall
Hi Testing for HIV is to have your first one at 3 weeks from the day of exposure, then at 3 months and the last one at 6 months for a known exposure. Not knowing that status of the person you had sex with you should be tested again at 6 months. If this is negative then you are negative from this experience. 97% of the population will test negative or positive at the 3 month mark and 100% at 6 months.
Hope this helps, be well and stay safe, Shannon
