Hi, Shannon Southall continue with my issue, i was tested again at public hospital after 22 weeks after exposure, and it came about to be negative. But they used Alere Determine antibody rapid test. Does that mean im clean?

Hi The testing guidelines for HIV are to be initially tested at 3 weeks post exposure and then again at 90 days. As long as there are no other exposures happened during this time frame than the results are conclusive. 22 weeks out the test results are conclusive and you are HIV FREE and you are clean if you took a shower!
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
