Hi

I had risky encounter with someone who had confirmed HIV2
I would like to know if

1 HIV duo combo is conclusive for HIV2 after 90 days or is the window periodlonger for HIV2?
2 is p24 antigen (i took first test after 25days) only for HIV1 or 2 as well
I am close to taking my 3 months result
My ARS symptomscameate 6th weeks and matched exeactly classic ARS (fever, unsteady blood peasure and pulse, swallen groin lymphs and savere pain in groins, diareha,) I aso develop bronze and dark spots all over mybody

Please answer me only if you know for sure - don't tell me what you think becuse I did some research and I need confirmation not guesess

Window Period is the same. The only difference in testing is that a regular Western Blot may not react to HIV2. HIV2 has p24 so should be the same deal. Good luck!
