Hi Teak,

Do you consider a 88 day antibody test conclusive and final?

review his post he always says 3 months is conclusive. 3 months =12 week = any time from 84 days to 90 days.

Dear friends,

I just got my results back for HIV 1/O/2, HCV, Syphilis, Gonorrihoeae and Chlamydia. Everything was Negative/Non-reactive. 88 days post my "none-exposure" day. Although my doctor still wants me to do the 6 month test, I feel a lot more relaxed right now than ever before. I am seeing a psychologist tomorrow to deal with my mental fear and hope everything will work out ok, this anxiety problem might be more serious than it sound...

I want to give my biggest THANK YOU to Teak, Lilly, Rain, Bigboss, Apollo, Joggen, Dr. H and everyone on this forum that have helped me these days. You guys are doing some tremendous jobs here and something that I will never forget in my lifetime.  If I have a chance to meet you guys in person, a round of beer will be on me for sure!

hey buddy congrats i'm so happy to hear that, it makes me feel better about my situation as well as we had simialr incidents, and similar responses from the forum. i took an 8 week test that came back negative, it'll take time but you'll start to overcome your anxiety, you spend so much time truly believeing that you have something, that when you find out you don't it take some time to believe, just think about your family and occupy yourself dont keep reading and searching and you'll start to feel better, it has already happened to me, especailly with this big hurricane sandy we've had here major distraction so havent even had a chance to read and you know what i'm starting to believe what these knowledgeable people say here. good luck man stay safe be thankful for all you have

Oh wait, you didn't even have a risk and your back with an anxiety driven question. Seek a therapist to help you out.

I think it's FDA approved as Teak answered it in this tread:

Thanks.

P.S. its hard to call any government agency, they will just tell you to go away and find out yourself...
