Am I Free?

Mr. Teak,

My story is this. I am a male who have once had unprotected sexual intercourse with a woman here in singapore.
I have tested at Action for Aids in DSC Clinic Singapore using rapid blood testing at 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, 5 months, and at 11 months post exposure and it all came back negative.

My question is. Can I rely on this results and finally move on with my life. It is almost a year and 2 months since that stupid mistake happened and just now I have a severe headache runs for almost 2 weeks and I tend to
co-relate these symptoms to HIV?

Please advise.

Many Thanks.

From Foreigner in singapore

you are well and truly negative at three months you could have stopped testing ... the guidelines are 3 months for a conclusive result .... you are negative ...

I have read that Determine HIV 1/2 rapid blood test cannot detect HIV-1 subtypes H,J,K?  and how does the AFA here in singapore conclude that a 3 months post exposure test is conclusive if they are using the above test kit which cannot able to detect HIV-1 subtypes H,J,K?

Can you pls give me some inputs on this issue.. You can confirm this fact on its product catalogue.
