I took the test about 2 months after the sex act it was negative but now I have to test again and worried it could be positive this time.

you didnt mess up - being neg at 8 weeks is good news or a good indication that a negative is in oyur future. i dont know what your risk or exposure was but most people produce antibodies 25-28 days or 4-6- weeks so .... 8 weeks is very incouraging. i was neg at 7 -9-12 weeks. i also will retest at 6 months. best of luck and post back at 3 months to let us know.

Hey there,
So 8 weeks is a pretty good sign (youll be fine), in addition this tells you that you never did get it before, think about the old partners you would have to contact. I am not looking forward to that if the results are bad

most doctors will tell you that a 6 week test is enough. Health dept. says that a week test is 99.7% accurate. So don't stress too much over this, your 3 month test will be negative also!
