I recently (2 months ago) had a rapid EIA test that came back negative. This was between 8.5-9 years after possible exposure. I am experiencing symptoms so for piece of mind, I had another test completed yesterday. It was another rapid test that came back negative. Am I good to go? Or should I continue to worry that I might be infected. I don't want to be a worry well. All my partners have claimed they tested negative..

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

As the archives clearly state, three months is considered conclusive.

In health,
