I was recently raped and I have a question about testing. I was placed on pep at 58 hours and completed it. I was told to test 4-6 weeks after finishing pep and then at three months post pep. I went for my first post pep test at 45 days after finishing pep and 10 weeks after the rape and the doctor tested me with an oral swab and not a blood test. It was negative. I was told this was a good indication of my status. My question to an expert out there would be should I ask for a blood test at my three month test ? My doctor stated that the oral swab test was highly accurate and at three months post pep was conclusive. He said he would give me a blood test but it is expensive and he didn't think it was necessary if i continued to test negative with the swab test. I just want to make sure this is the case. After reading through the message boards I just don't know what to think and want to have all the information possible. Does anyone have any advice?
