I am worry the result will change at 8 or 12 weeks ? I did not exposure any sex activity so far.. Please help me ..
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi Yes unprotected receptive anal sex carries the highest risk of HIV transmission and you must stick to the testing guidelines and get tested at 90 days post exposure. As long as there are no other exposures during this time your results are considered conclusive at the 90 day mark.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
