absolutely not, hiv tests have very poor sensibility and still use elisa method and can even be influenced by oxidative stress in blood, i d not test again snce the test is so unreliable but if you want to test again i suggest you to eliminate possible interference from oxidative stress by at least 5 weeks of:
liposomal vitamin c and liposomal glutathione from livon labs, even if 5 weeks is a very short time this should lower oxidative stress to normal levels
