|Test Result Question
Jan 12, 2013
Hello! I am a 21 yo female i just went to my health department and got tested. Well, the first time i had sex with the person i am concerned of was a little over two months ago and the last time was a little over a month ago. According to the CDC.gov website it said that 97 % of people develop detectable antibodies between 2 and 8 weeks, the average is 25 days, in rare instances etc etc. My test came back negative, i will be reassuring the results in a few months, but does this mean that the likelyhood of my results are accurate?
Thank you so very much, Amber

Thanks for writing it. It is likely that your negative test result, while preliminary, is accurate. Follow-up with a final test 90 days from the date of your last sexual encounter with this person. I am confident the result will be negative.
