Today i did my 24 week (168 days) hiv duo test. Thank God it was negative. My doctor told me 6 months is 100 percent conclusive. My question is shouldbi count the 6 months as 180 days or do you think 168 days (24 weeks) is equal to 6 months. This thought is lingering in my mind and causing my anxiety levels to rise. Thanks in advance for your expert advice as i am nearly there in terms of getting over this damn hiv anxiety.
3 months is conclusive ! A negative antibody at 68 days is a very,very good indicator of what you 84 days test result will be. Your result will not change at 84 days. Stop stressing and think positive buddy as you will be ok.
In other words this is an hiv anxiety question " should i trust my 24 weeks (168 days) result as being conclusive or should i retest at 180 days?" Sorry for my hiv anxiety but it is also my Ocd acting up and an answer from you all will help me come back to being sane again.
Thanks buddy. This damn anxiety just keeps playing with my mind. I am going for the 180 days test just to get rid of this doubtful feeling. My therapist has told me that probably this 180 days test mark that i keep thinking about could be the cause for my anxiety to come back. So i am just going to do the 180 day test and put this nightmare behind me. Wish me luck and God Bless
