elisa test after 50 days

Jan 26, 2013

hello sir,

i am a male aged 26.

i had a sexual encounter on November 9 , 2012.

i got tested on Jan 1, 2013 by the ELISA test - dont know what generation test they used.

it was negative. thus i got tested after 50 days. should i get tested again.

am i negative for sure.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

You must wait 90 days for a conclusive result. By 28 days, most people will have produced enough antibodies that can be detected by a test. You are well past 28 days. While I would encourage you to go in for a final test at 90 days, I am confident that the result will remain the same.

In health,
