Is There A Need For Further Testing?
Jul 26, 2012
I am a female. On October 3, 2011 I had unprotected sex with a man from my past. On January 5, 2012 I had an oraquick HIV test (negative). On January 12, 2012 I had an HIV blood test (negative). On July 2, 2012 I completed the Home Access HIV Blood Testing Kit. On July 3, 2012 that test was also negative. It had now been 9 months since the October encounter. Is there a need to test again??
Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman
Hello there- No at 9 months you are conclusively negative and need not test again related to this incident. Play safe and take care, LHW
