Hi, testing conclusive for hiv would be 3 months post exposure.
its is important to get tested as soon as possible regardless of whether you have experienced the symptoms or not. Early detection is very important so consult your doctor for a prompt test and treatment that may give you regarding to your concern.
Is the fact that i was negative on an early detection test a strong sign I'm not infected though?
No, first off you took the wrong test. 3 months post exposure with the correct test will be conclusive.
"Wrong test"? I know that an antibody test 3 months post exposure is truly a diagnosis but you're acting like the test is totally useless.
I wasn't asking if it's conclusive, I asked whether or not it's a strong indication. I've seen you going around dismissing this test, and I get trying to inform people it's not meant on its own as a diagnostic test. But it's a highly sensitive test that HAS to mean something...
An RNA test is not used to diagnose HIV, it's to confirm a positive test result. If you knew what you were talking about that would be one thing but you don't.
Again, i NEVER said its conclusive and I'm free of HIV. I'm simply wondering whether or not it's a good indicator of what the antibody test will be. You're arguing with yourself
No and again that is not what the purpose of the PCR-RNA test.
