negative duo test at 40 days reliable??

good evening doctors. i recently had an elisa 4th generation test 40 days after a protected vaginal sex exposure. it was negative but i am still anxious.. how reliable is the test at 40 days, or should it be done at around 28 days when the p24 antigen is at its peak. many thanks

Hello,
Thank you very much for your post.
Your negative HIV Duo test performed at 40 days is final and fully conclusive.  There is no need for you to have any further tests.  The p24 antigen remains detectable from 14 days up to at least 6 months after the initial infection.
Best wishes,
Dr José

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have sex with a 17 yrs old girl.
After that I have taken treatment for HSV as I was affected to it.

After 5 months I had HIV Test (Tri-Dot) which was negative.

Can I relay on the result? I am very much afraid about it?

Please answer to my question.

If possible the reply me on :  dev.***@****


Regards Dev,
Thanks.
