RNA viral detection test and ELIZA at 6 weeks

May 2, 2012

I had an RNA and ELIZA test at 6 weeks post a possible exposure to HIV and would like to know if this is conclusive. The testing center I went to said it only takes 11 days post exposure to get a clear answer with the RNA test. Both tests were negative and I was told I had nothing to worry about. Is this true?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi The testing center is correct and you are HIV negative.

Be well and stay safe,Shannon

Risk of contracting hiv
