How accurate could be the tests during possible ARS: Elisa 4 and 7 weeks negative and p24 antigen test at five weeks negative?

Response from Dr. Cohen

You might send this to the forum specifically answering questions about testing. However - I would say that you can be very sure, nearly 100% sure, that these tests say you do not have HIV infection. An additional Elisa test in a few more mos, and/or an HIV RNA test itself may be sufficient to answer this - now and/or in a few mos. But please do check out that forum as the expert there is very up to date about issues of testing.

Good luck
