|hi , shannon, hiv at 9 weeks
Sep 9, 2012
9 weeks as a initial hiv test would show good things about my hiv status?
i dont have other exposure, i have 9 week that i think someone infected me with a needle with hiv...

Hi My answer stays the same with your clarification. 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, as long as there were no other types of exposure during that 3 month period, if so then the timing starts over again. Being negative at 9 weeks is good news but you need to be tested again at 3 months or 12 weeks.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
