Doctor Sullivan hello
I know that RNA PCR tests are not FDA approved for diagnostic of HIV but still:
Is their a risk that a viral load test 5 weeks after exposure will show "undetectable" because the virus was superset by the body after it had gotten to the peek level, Or such a thing takes more time then 5 weeks? Pleas answer I need your comments,
Thank you for your time Linda
Response from Dr. Sullivan
The RNA PCR test would derfinitely be positive at 5 weeks post exposure if you were infected; if it was negative you are not infected; JLS.
