6 months is 100%

Apr 5, 2013

Antibody test done after 6 months is a guarantee of no chance hiv right regardless of exposure or symptoms? I'm goin back to the doctor tmrw this will be 9 full months or like 43 weeks from exsposure and thinking bout getting another hiv test. I'm a wreck with what's wrong with me.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Yes if you had a test 6 months after exposure and there were no other exposures during this time you are HIV free. There is no reason for continued testing again as long as there have been no other exposures during this time.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Doctor shannon please help me.
