My AntiHiv (ab & p24 ag) result is Negative after 18 days.
My question is can i trust the result?
I asked two doctors and they said you dont need any other tests and the result is accurate and you're clean!
Please tell me what do you think? Should i have another test or not? I'm very very stressful!
Yes it is true. It can pick up infection within that time frame. But early detection is not the same as conclusively negative. To be 100% sure you have to wait out the window period, as infection can vary from person to person. A simple antibody test after 12 weeks is the only officially backed test that can establish your negative status. Having said that, the test you had so far is great news.
