Not an approved HIV screening test and you didn't have a risk to begin with and didn't need testing.

What is the combo test anyhow?

Combo test - Antigen/Antibody test. Before the body produces antibodies it produces Antigen (Protien 24) and the doctors based on their experience and research in labs base that antigens are produced with in 30 days and then antibodies are produced after antigens. So a combo test is both Antigen/Antibody

Combo/Duo is excellent at 4 weeks+ as it is said to detect up to 99% of infections at this time frame because this is when p24 antigen is at it's peak.
