It means on 18 days after exposure.. and result came as 'not detected'. How much accurate is this result?? so again i m planning to do test on 45 days after exposure.. Which test will be good on 45 days??
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi Getting PCR test is a valuable asset to testing and with your results almost 3 weeks after exposure being not detected is a good sign. The guidelines for testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 90 days. If this test is negative than so are you.
You are on the right course for testing and next time, make sure you have condom with you and use it so you don't have to go through this again!
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
