Western Blot tests are not to be used in that manner.

tks,

1. If i had HIV2, Western blot at 8 months will become positive. - is it correct.

2. HIV2 window period.

3. Spot test rapid is it equal to esila test.

I have done rapid test hiv negitive.

I am confused in this site, please help.

I have read in some they say to test rapid ( 10 minutes ) it is equal to Elisa.

Sometimes, they say it is different and if we go to any lab they will use rapid test.

I am negitive for 3 months ( 2.9 ) with rapid test.

again sometimes they said to test 2 times with elisa

Doesn't mean a thing since you weren't confirming anything.

The WB was unnecessary since you tested negative on the rapid test. A WB should only be used to confirm a positive result. You don't have HIV.
