Dear Shanoon Please answer ... This anxity is rueining my happyness

Dec 26, 2012

Hi Doc,

I got tested at 91 days and result came as -Ve.But my question is 1)I got tested by TRI DOT method, due you think this test is accurate at 91 days. 2)Do you think the result may change if i take the test at 100 days or some says 6 months. 3)I have seen most you answering as 90 days is conclusive but can TRI DOT detect any anti bodies or virus. 4)Do i need to retest at 6 month mark.

PS : I never had sex nor got any possible exposure to virus in these 90 days.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi The guidelines for testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks and then again at 90 days. You have tested during this time and it has come back negative than so are you!

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
