Testing at 12 weeks

Jan 30, 2013

I've been tested at 12 weeks for HIV and Hepatitis panal. They came back negative! Can I move on or should I be tested again? I'm a little worried, I noticed a redness on my inner lip. After seeing my doctor she expained that I was ok.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

90 days is considered conclusive. 12 weeks is not quite 90 days (84 days). I would not expect your result to change in those six days. I agree with your doctor. I think you are OK.

In health,


Fastest way to be sure
I am very scared, please help me
