Question about HIV test
Aug 8, 2012
Hi Dr, would like to ask about the type of HIV testing. as what i know, there are several types of HIV test, PCR, duo test and so? what is the differences between each test? i had did one a simple test, which is a needle prick and wait for 15 minutes. what is this test? i did it on my 90th day post exposure and came back negative. how accurate is the result?

Check out this great section on HIV test types from Avert.org. An antibody test done at the 90 day mark can be considered conclusive.
