unprotected sex----ECLIA test
      #245565 - 04/28/09 09:19 AM

on 4 February, i had unprotected vaginal sex with a thai sex worker for less than two minutes.
within 24 hours i took Kaletra, lamivudine and zidovudine for 28 days.
on 30 March(8 weeks later), this woman had ECLIA/ Roche Diagnostics test with negative result.
so the negative result after 8 weeks is accurate, isn't it?
does it mean i have little chance of being infected?
so ECLIA test told that the very day when i was exposed, that woman is HIV-free. right?

Sorry but when taking PEP the starting period for the window period is delayed. You have a 4 week result, not an 8 week result. But congrats on that one being negative.
