so, if i take a test at 12 weeks period (84 days) it would be as conclusive as 90 days? the 6 days difference would not make any difference in the test result?

My exposure is unprotected vaginal intercourse with a csw in indonesia.

I already had a pcr rna and an hiv antibody test at 40 days and the result is negative for the antibody and undetectable for the PCR RNA test  (dr hhh say that its conclusive), but for comfort and to be on the safe side i'll take another one at the 84 days period (this Thursday). I'm a little bit nervous since there's a small red rash under both of my armpit that shown at 10 weeks period, hope that is not an acute hiv rashes.

thank you for the information guys.

regards,

Like lizzie said, a few days makes NO difference.  Your result is completely conclusive.

You're obviously spending a LOT of time thinking about this.  I would recommend keeping yourself busy and distracted with other things.  Time to let this go now.
