rna pcr test

Apr 26, 2012

I had Eliza at 7 days post exposure and at 15 days post. I also had an hiv-1 rna pcr at 18 days post negative. I had a rapid blood test on 25th and 32nd day all negative. My doc said the rna at 18 days is pretty conclusive almost 100% is this true I am so racked with anxiety.

Response from Ms. Southall

HI Yes a RNA PCR test is conclusive and I agree with your doctor.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
