While the fact no traces of the virus were detected in your blood, which is a GOOD thing. I still recommend getting an antibody test at just to be absolutely certain.
This is not because I believe you had a false negative, RNA tests just aren't for diagnostic purposes. They are for people who already have HIV
These results were from the antibody test same day...
HIV 1/O/1 - <1.00 (Negative)
HIV 1/O/2 - Non Reactive
She told me it was a 3rd generation test. Is this good?
Oh my bad. I saw your first line describing your tests and jumped to conclusions. Please excuse me.
A 9 week test will NOT change. It's up to you if you want to get tested at 3 months to comply with federal guidelines.
The average time for detection of infection using 3rd Generation testing is between 22-30 days, and you are long past that.
Ok. Thanks for your insight. I will probably test again at 3 months just so it's on paper. You really read scary stuff on the internet. Some guy I just read about on the POZ forum said he tested negative up until 3.5 months. His story was a little off, but it still puts fear in a persons heart.
Someone on the POZ forum said they tested positive at 3.5 months?
Yes. I will message you directly about this because I have some concerns that I don't think need to be in this thread.
