Hello people. Here is my exposure details.
Condom breakage with a girl from college
Rna PCR with 20 copies/ml detection at 13 days : negative
Duo combo test at laboratory at 36 days : negative
Duo combo test at laboratory at 48 days : negative
I saw that CDC considers 45 days to be conclusive for duo and also experts like Hook,Handsfield and tan partners. Most Guidleines like UK,European guidelines consider 6 week to be conclusive for the duo but I don’t understand why doctors have not kept up with this.
I read that duo misses infection during the acute infection phase and it’s sensitivity is low during this phase. I found a study where duo detected only 80 of the 100 rna positive samples.Does this happen during the window period ?
Am i in the clear ? Please help
