"why do they do. This?" How could we possiblily know why your Dr would advise this? Next time make take her some proof that 3 months is the conclusive window period.

"Would it be a waste to test again?" I think you know this answer.

Hi MK716,

You tested negative at 6 months with a reliable test, beyond the standard 3 months window period.

Your negative test was done at a time even the rare people would have tested positive if they were truly infected.

You don't have hiv!

Take care.

May God bless
