Home Access, negative at 2 months
      #8614 - 08/19/00 12:20 AM

Hi everyone,

I just got my 2 months result from Home Access, it's NEGATIVE! I know it's not conclusive, but I can at least breath a little easier now.

I actually talked to a counselor after I get the result (can't trust the computer) and have him verified it. He said negative at 2 months is an extremely good sign, but of course, I should get retested at 6 months. I asked if they have any statistics about the effectiveness of the test at 2 months, I told him I think it's at least 50%, he said it's actually higher than that, but did not elaborate. He also said at 3 months it would be 99.99% effective. I wasn't sure I heard it right, because moments ago he just told me I should take it again at 6 months.

I am still not totally at ease now. But I am a lot relieved. I just want to tell everybody that you have helped me a lot. And I hope everybody will be negative.

I would be really reassured by your 2 month result. Get tested at 3 months to ease your mind but this really is a good sign.
All the best

Hi essy,

Even if I'm still not conclusively cleared, I felt exactly the same (need a while to get rid of the anxiety) and I'm in the same situation (need to catch up on work) as you said in another post. But I don't mind having to go to work at all now. :) All the best to you.

And thanks to Gary too.
