Congrats on being negative. The best test to take after 8 months of testing negative for HIV is a psych test if that is you want to continue to believe you are positive.

instead of having p24 antigen test you should have tested with an standard antibody test.. p24 antigen is only used for early screening ...

Byron -

What part of you didn't have a risk did you not understand? You got a blow job with a condom on. You never even needed to test in the first place over that. Let it go now or you will become like dontbelieveit and Mikey boy.

Don't ruin your life over a disease you don't have like they are doing. It never turns out well when you lose control of your sanity.

this is like a trick question. the best HIV test to take after 8 months is no HIV test. why? because you already tested negative at 7 months, which is well outside the window period and conclusive.

furthermore, as the others have noted, your encounter was not a risk for HIV. receiving oral sex while wearing a condom is not an HIV risk.

the tests you listed are 100% conclusive. you are negative. no more testing is needed for your non-risk.

I guess it is an Ag/Ab combo 4th generation test, p24 is part of it? P24 along test is useless after a few weeks. The combo test is said to be accurate after only 3 weeks, and you have waited far out of the window period, and definitely conclusive.
