recent results
Dr. my recent results after 6 weeks of abstinence of sleeping with 10 women (protected sex), receiving unprotected oral sex is:
HIV DNA RT by PCR Negative TG
HIV-1 DNA NOT DETECTED
                                                                   .
Comment:
Patient's specimen is NEGATIVE for Human Immunodeficiency Virus
Proviral DNA by the RT Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Amplification
method. Negative results do NOT rule out the possibility of HIV
infection. PCR results should be used in conjunction with other
laboratory test results and the patient's clinical profile.
                                                                     .
This assay is currently labeled by its manufacturer "For Research Use
Only.  Not for use in diagnostic procedures".  This assay has not been
approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.  The performance
characteristics of this assay have been validated by LabCorp.
HIV 1/O/2 Abs-Index Value <1.00 <1.00  BN
Index Value: Specimen reactivity relative to the negative cutoff.
HIV 1/O/2 Abs, Qual Non Reactive Non Reactive  BN

Do you think this such test is conclusive? Can I relax, or should I still be concerned and follow up with a 3 month test? What kind of value does the medical community put in PCR test?

You never had a risk and no need to test. While a yearly test with other health checkups is a good idea the above exposures are not exposures.
