Opinion

Hey guys I need your opinion I know CDC guideline is 3 months for a conclusive negative result, I also know many drs say at 6 weeks a negative is unlikely to change, in fact many have never seen it happen. I've also read that an antibody test at 4 weeks is considered 90% percent accurate while a 6 week test is thought to be 98% so my question is is my 33 day negative antibody test Likly to change if I go back at 43 days and test again or can I be confident in my result. Thank you guys. Also if I had what I would consider to possibly be ars symptom ie sore throat and diahreaa during my 33 day test would it of cane up positive or do the ailments have to leave first before you would test positive thank you guys again

Re: Opinion

my opinion is
it would be highly unlikely for your results to change
i tested positive 19 days from exposure and i would expect most
people would show on a test by that time(around 2-3 weeks at most)
good luck

Re: Opinion

You had protected sex, so all this is pointless, you were not at risk of HIV.
