You keep asking the question and the answer doesn't change. You tested negative at 7 months. That's conclusive. As you have also been told exposure does not mean infection. You have proven that because you say you were exposed, but you, yourself remain uninfected.

Now drop this and move on. Quite frankly, as someone living with HIV, the fact you can't let go of this and continue to come back here to belabor a dead horse issue is getting tiresome. Next time I might tell you what I really think of people that can't accept test results.

you need to test out to a year with that exposure. 7 month's is not difinitive with that test. 1 year is.

Your information is completely wrong. A seven month negative test is DEFINITELY conclusive! Any well informed specialist will tell you that...

I wish people would stop spreading wrong information. It's useless and hurtful...

There is no respected organization that says testing needs to be done out to a year. The untra conservative CDC recommends 3 months. People like you that want to push your very paranoid agenda about people living with HIV need to burn in Hell. Go thump your agenda elsewhere, perhaps to Ted Haggart.
