Do the 3 month test to get a conclusive result as that is the only way to confirm if you got infected or not. Teak helped me through my anxiety and i am sure he will tell you to wait the 3 months. March 17th is very near so please hang in there buddy as i know how nerve wrecking it can be.

the TEST was 4th gen duo test cmia method using abott architect .I understand that CDC guidelines are a 3 month conclusive but here in India the doctors are off the view that a 6 week negative doesn't require any more testing.The 3 month test is my personal choice

WB is only reserved for a positive antibody test. Your test is conclusive at 3 months, but I doubt you didn't use a condom.

even i doubt it but the problem is i am not certain and the most important question is can anti rabies give a false positive if yes then how to get tested?
