I posted before but I have another question regarding testing accuracy...
I took an hiv test at 6 weeks and another at 9 weeks after I had a possible exposure. I was told the testing used the latest technology. I think they called it 4th generation or something? Anyways, the test came out negative.
However I have been reading that conclusive tests are really 12 weeks after exposure. Should I get retested?
FYI, my exposure entailed genital to genital rubbing and fellatio. No intercourse.
Thanks for quick response. I ended up running blood tests for all stds and I did come up positive for hsv2. That is why I was so concerned about hiv. Considering I contracted hsv2 should I still be worried about hiv here?
