HIV Conclusive

Feb 4, 2013

I had HIV Duo cmia test (fourth generation) after 130 days of possible exposure. I cam back non-reactive. I was on antibiotics since fourth months (for my sore throat, fungal rashes and on-off fever after exposure), Now i would like to know from your side that is this test is conclusive or i do need more testings i.e. after six months. How reliable is this test? Kindly guide me as am suffering through high anxiety and stress.

Response from Dr. Wohl

The test is negative. Antibiotics do not affect the result of HIV tests. DW
