we were afraid of HIV possible infection .
SO My GF had many HIV tests ( like 3 so Far )
she took 2 Elisa Tests ( a full month between each ) in OCT , NoV
then she took a ( AG\AB ) test a month after the Last Elisa test , in DEC
My GF & I we were talking yesterday , we decided that she will take another test ( HIV Elisa ) in March 2012
because it will be like 6 month after the exposure , after our first met together in September,
she is OK to do it for me , so i think i will just wait till then , ( what do you think )
is 6 monthes is enough period for the AntiBody to show on the tests man ?
i read it man , it says also 3 months are enough period , ::
" Most people infected with HIV will develop enough antibodies to be detected by HIV antibody tests four weeks after the exposure (transmission). Virtually all cases of HIV infection can be detected by three months "
first of all , what does it mean by " Virtually " ?
also , they didn't talk about ( AG\AB ) test man ?
virtually means nearly all because statistically no test is 100 % conclusive if you want a 100% test the best test would be to see whether you live over 15 years and if so then we can guarantee that you don t have HIV. the AB/AG test is very accurate and i would say 6 week is more than enough it up to you god bless cheers
