If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and want help to judge your risk, would like advice about HIV testing, or have questions about the effectiveness of condoms or risks associated with specific sexual practices, this is the site for you.
Would be so grateful if someone could clear this up. Some places state 4 weeks duo test is conclusive, but I was wondering if anyone knows about the p24 antigen. I understand that it disappears after a while so it's undetectable, I was wondering if anyone knew the approximate time span of this?
Other than that, I know 3 months is considered conclusive universally, but I was wondering, say someone serovonverted at, I dunno a month and half after exposure, would the rapid tests test positive at this time? So someone could test before 3 month with the 3rd gen rapid tests and get a positive result?
