I'm sure you asked this when you tested. What did the testing agency say???

you're right esmeralda

they said me that with result at 72 days i could be calm, and if i retest at three month the result wil be the same ( negative) but its not necesary retest...

reading forums and webs i can see the experts and oficial guidelines says 3 months is a conclusive and definitive result...

Pd: sorry for my english, im spanish and i dont speak very well english...

As much as it pains me to say, the United States is far from the cutting edge of anything. It's only in this country that a 3 month window exists, every one else's government is intelligent enough to understand that with the testing today and the information we have learned, 3 months is on the very outside. Congrats on your negative and be thankful that you live in a country that is more progressive than the United States has become.

Murano,

I would be surprised your results would be any different, if you decide to re-test again. If i were you, i would deem this episode as 'case closed'.

Cheers

Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Love Ravi
