Seriously, do I need to get tested again, or am I okay?!
Apr 25, 2012
I had my first unprotected anal exposure and tested back HIV Negative at 16 weeks (4 months). Shannon and my doctor say that I should test again, just to be sure, but I'm really confused. You say that 3 months is enough. Is it really? Do I have a chance of having it? I really need to reach on conclusion on this.. It's been driving me crazy. Should I be worried?
Thanks for all that you do

I'm sure that Shannon and your doctor are just being overly cautious. The fact remains, any HIV testing done outside of the three month window is considered conclusive.
Bottom line: Don't worry. Be happy. Trust the test!
