Please answer my question is my third

Aug 2, 2014

Dr. I went to a massage parlor and i finger a prostitute vagina, i bite my nails, and i think i had a little cut (hangnail) while i finger the girls vagina, i had a p24 antigen test 19 days after the incident, and i also had an Elisa 4th generation the same day, both tested negative, then at 28 days after the incident i had an Elisa 4th generation and it was also negative, I went to a Doctor and he told me everything was ok and to stop testing, that through fingering there was no risk of transmission, i am really scared because i keep reading about the window period for Elisa 4 is 3 months, it has been a nightmare for me, i know that after this i am never going again to those places, i would really be grateful for your answer, i trust a lot in the body, hoping to hear from you, my best regards.

Response from Dr. Wohl

The window period for the p24 Ag test is much smaller and p24 can be detected a week after infection. Your doctor is correct.


What are my chances??? (3rd time asking)
Extreme levels of anxiety .
