Response from Ms. Southall

HI I am having a tough time knowing exactly what you are asking, but what I think you are asking is about testing. The guidelines for HIV testing is to be initially tested at 3 weeks and then again at 90 days, as long as there are no other exposures during this time than the results at 90 days are conclusive. There is no need for continued testing. The only reason for continued testing is if you continue to participate in high risk activity, unprotected sex, sharing needles.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Sorry to bother!
