I am not an expert on this, but if it's FDA approved then it should be okay. I also remember someone saying that after 6 weeks the reliability of the different antibody tests is more or less the same.

Hi,

Rapid test is as conclusive as ELIZA test but 7 weeks is not conclusive if your exposure is risky.

7 weeks test is 90% accurate but a 13 week test is conclusive..

My risk was protected Vaginal intercoures and I had test today which was 8weeks and it is negative also.

I am worried just coz this is my 1st time doing this and coz I feel guilty to cheat on my wife.

I Will never do this again.
