PCR DNA???
      #20683 - 08/10/01 02:26 PM

I'm really confused. I read yes it's a good test and then no it isn't a good test. Is the PCR DNA Qualitative test reliable after 5 weeks? Yes or No. I was told to move on with my life, but I can't. The idea fo having to take another test is really tough. I did have an exposure to someone with HIV. It was a low exposure but an exposure non the less.

Thanks

Sorry I ask the question, but It would be good to know what kind of exposure, this way it would be easier to recomend a second test.

Any ways 5 weeks is a good time. Have you spoken with a doctor?

Take care

A PCR DNA HIV test is considered exclusive at 28 days. No further testing is required.
