For information please!

Jan 21, 2013

Dear Experts at, It is always recomended on your site that testing should be at 3 weeks and then at 90 days for cconclusive results. If a person misses the 3rd week test but takes a single test after 90 days would the results be considered conclusive?

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there- Yes, that would be sufficient. The 3 week test is the earliest with standard testing that a result would be accurate and that is why it is advised for those who have had a recent risk exposure. It is not necessary however. Take care, LHW

Do I need to test again?
