HIV-1 Antigen P24
today i got this test result:

HIV-1 Antigen P24 (BS): 0.23

Not detectable

Not detectable- 0.99

does this mean that i'm safe and not having the HIV Antigen in my body?
or that i have it by 0.23?

i had this test 38 days after my exposure.... is this test accurate after 38 days?

You should have had that test at 4 weeks when the p24 antigen is at it's peak.Why didn't you have a duo that would have looked for antibodies aswell.Test again at 12 weeks for a conclusive result.

and i forgot to mention that i had an antibody test in the same day with this test too.... and it was NEGATIVE

the antibody test was:
HIV Ag/Ab (CMIA)
and it was in the same day (after 38 days from exposure)

Negative

Look,any negative test result is great and you should be happy with your result but 12 weeks is when it will be conclusive.Just have an Elisa antibody test then.

I thought you just had a p24 antigen test.Looks like you had the DUO so that is an even better result for you.It would be looking for antibodies aswell.In any event you still require testing at 12 weeks.

well, it wasn't a DUO test :)
i had the HIV-1 Antigen P24
then when i knew that it is just for the ANTIGEN, i had another separate test in the same day and it was HIV Ag/Ab (CMIA)... so both tests were done at 38 days from exposure

please, aren't these negative results for both testsaccurate by any mean?
and i'm planing to retest at 12 weeks just to be 100% sure
