I was worried about hiv and therefore i had some tests
real time pcr rna at 15 days- negative real time pcr rna at 37 days-negative HIV Ag(p24)/HIV Ab(type1+type2)(CMIA) at 60 days-negative
Can i move on? are these test conclusive?
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi The guidelines for HIV testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 3 months, if both of these tests are negative then so are you.
That is with just an oral or blood rapid test when you have a PCR test done these are conclusive. So with the number of PCR test you have had run I feel comfortable telling you that you are negative and you can move on.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
