12.5 week negative test conclusive?
Jan 3, 2013
Hi Dr. Wohl,
I have two antibody test via LabCorp ICMA HIV 1/O/2. One at 5 week mark and one at 12.5 week mark. Both negative. Do I need to continue worry about HIV? My exposure was unprotected vaginal sex with a female sex worker with unknow status. Thank you for your response in advance.
Response from Dr. Wohl
A negative 12 week result is considered sufficient. DW
