HIV P24 / Ag (ANTIGEN)

Hello

Please i want to know the accuracy of this Test:
HIV P24 / Ag (ANTIGEN)

i had it done after 38 days of exposure and i will get the results in 5 days.... i read it somewhere online that this test is useless after 21 days of exposure... is that true?

You never had a risk.Why are you having trouble understanding that and that test is not useless after 21 days,that's when p24 antigen peaks.It's good between 1 to 4 weeks.

ok... it's good between 1 to 4 weeks
but i did it after 38 day... so does that make it less accurate?

Yes,it peaks at 4 weeks.You should have had a DUO test that looks for antigen and antibodies but because you never had a risk it really doesn't matter..

Are you reading the answers or are you just typing.YOU NEVER HAD A RISK OF HIV INFECTION.You can have that test and it will just come back negative and you would have wasted your time and money.
