Thank you so much for your reply. Do I understand you correctly that I do not need further test?
The man was a Dutchman, white. I do not believe he came from Africa. Of course I cannot exclude he has never been there as a tourist, but I guess there are more chanses that he has not been there.
In fact I asked him about his hiv status before we had sex. He replied to me that he was not infected. He also told me that he was married and had kids.
While browsing the forums on medhelp, I found that some people, for example Teak are insisting (already for many years) on the 3 month period for a conclusive test. For example, a very recent post here: http://www.medhelp.org/posts/HIV-Prevention/general-questions/show/1769622#post_8132326
. And this is despite the fact that you and other doctors on this forum agree on 4 weeks mark for a duo (combo) test.
Is not this "3 month" in contradiction to what is said in French offficial advise to testing (link in English): http://www.has-sante.fr/portail/upload/docs/application/pdf/2010-02/hiv_infection_screening_in_france_-_laboratory_tests_and_algorithms-conclusions.pdf ?
While reading the posts from Teak and others on this site I start debating to myself wheather I need to re-test again.
What would be your advise?
