3rd month anti-body test vs a 3rd month PCR test... Conclusive?
I HAVE Protected Sex with CSW and its my first time and i am freaked out although it was very quick like 7 mins..... i heard about condom failure and slippage.. what are my risk of HIV? especially theres a time during my 2nd cum where my penis lose its power and retracted inside of her till i was able to cum inside of her then withdraw and remove...
Having an anti-body test on the 3rd month is conclusive... what about having a PCR test on the 3rd month? will it be more conclusive?
they say 3rd month on PCR is like 1/2 years of anti-body....
since PCR is used for very early detection for 3 weeks exposure and is very sensitive...
what worries me is, since PCR is very sensitive, it has a higher chance of giving false positive results....
anyway ill be taking 3rd month PCR along with anti-body and a lot of series enumerative testings and
i will post my results here..
I take pcr @ three weeks got neg after 8 weeks i take anti- body and elisa there neg too but i am still not convice i dont know why.
In your case 3 month pcr is not nesesary you should take only anti-body test
