Hi, I had an exposure on December 30th 2018 it was unprotected to a woman I met at a bar.
3 weeks after my exposure, I had sore throat that went away the next day after taking antibiotics,and it happened again on the 4th week of my exposure but went away as well the next day after antibiotics.
During the 6th week of my exposure, I had two test which came out negative - first was a finger prick test and the second test was taken out from my arm. As far as I can remember, it was Alere Rapid Duo Test and it only took 10 mins to get my result.
But the thing that bothers me the most is based on some article on Google a conclusive result can achieve on the 3rd month post exposure.
Today, I'll be on my 9th week post exposure and I would like to get a 4th Generation Duo LAB Test. Should I go for it? Or should I wait for 3 month period? Should I trust the Alere Rapid test as well??
Thank you for all the experts here for helping people like me. Ive been struggling for weeks thinking about this & had some suicidal thoughts.
