I'm a gay guy who had sex 8 days ago with another dude (claims to be HIV-) and I was the bottom, during sex the condom broke and I was unprotected for only 4 seconds max! No exchange of fluids happened (or I couldn't actually see any) and I pulled him out directly.
After this incident I went to an STD medical center where I got on the second day a P24 Ag HIV test and it was negative which cleared all my previous sexual encounters except for the latest one. Because of my severe anxiety the doctor told me, although I am a low risk case, to go for a PCR RNA HIV test after 7 days and according to him and another clinic I consulted this test is conclusive after a week (British Standards they say)
So I did that and on the 8th day (today) I went and got a PCR RNA HIV test alongside another P24 Ag test and both came back negative, and I was so very relieved and happy.
But then I go on the internet and start to read how everyone is talking about false positive results and no accuracy of PCR while other sources claim it to be the best ever!!
I am really confused, should I be worried?? Am I at risk?? why would the internet be in such confusion when it comes to PCR? Should I trust the doctors or what is the deal here? Any feedback would be appreciated.
