Dear Doctors and Gentlemens,

I had an exposure 110 days ago, I had an protected ( but really I am not sure that yhe condom faıled or broken or ıt has some holes on ıt, the exparatıon date ıs okey but) sex wıth a sex worker, My concern ıs about HIV-2 because I had 4 test after the exposure, the test are wrıtten below, Some ınternet news or forums I have read that hıv -2 ıs less vırulent and there ıs no enough research about hıv-2, the wındow perıod wıll be more than 3 months or 6 months. Please gıve your advıces about me, I have tonsılıts for 4 weeks from the 77th days after the exposure.
After 42 days Hıv duo ultra ( bıomerux) Elfa - ab :0.07 , ag : 0.00 negatıve
After 52 days Hıv roche combi pt 0.23 negatıve
After 63 days Hıv roche combi pt 0.26 negatıve
After 90 days Hıv roche combi pt 0.21 negatıve

3 months post exposure is when you can obtain a conclusive negative test result on both types of HIV.
