If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and want help to judge your risk, would like advice about HIV testing, or have questions about the effectiveness of condoms or risks associated with specific sexual practices, this is the site for you.
I just got my result back after 6 months. Tested for HIV (LabCorp panel 083824) antibody and hep b and c. All non-reactive (negative). I had three HIV antibody test total, one at 5 weeks, one at 12.5 weeks and this one at 6 months+ 2 days, all of which are the same test, the panel 083824. Have not had sex with my wife for 6 months, am I 100% HIV free? Can I move on with my life now and spend time with my family? I thank you for all your support sincerely!!!
One last question, I got my results back the next day after blood drawn. I got my blood drawn in San Francisco but the lab that actually did my tests is in San Diego (about 10-12 hours driving).
The medical practice said they fly my samples to the lab the same night after drawing my blood., I feel the turn around time is very quick, is that a normal logistic procedure for blood sample delivery to another lab far away?
They won't answer anymore of your question man with a 6 month negative no matter what your question is. I think your test is ok considering they send samples in the mail from in home test, but I'm no expert just someone wanting to resume unprotected sex such as yourself. All the best bud. :)
I got my blood drawn at the medical practices facility on Monday 2/4/13 8:15 AM PST, but the lab result shows my blood was drawn on Sunday 2/3/14 9:00PM. I wonder they did process my own blood samples.

The issue of whether the test was properly conducted by your physician and by labcorp is not one we can address here, and you will have to work that out through your personal doctor. Posting about your concerns here, particularly since you had no risk, serves no purpose except to unnecessarily heighten anxiety.
