Hiv PCR RNA Test+antibody test

Dec 17, 2012

Good morning, I have had a (in my mind) possible exposure November 1st and I took an Antibody test and a RNA test 30 days later. Both came out negative. I know the RNA is conclusive after 9-11 after exposure but I just want my mind at ease from an expert. So I wanted to know where I stand as far as accuracy?

Response from Dr. Wohl

Together these tests are like wearing a belt and suspenders - foolproof. You are not HIV infected. DW

Please help me with this situation DR !!!!
