Apologies if this is in the wrong category
Please can someone give me some feedback, should I still be so worried?
Hello, 4th generation DUO tests are conclusive after 28 days and hence your test is conclusive. The symptoms are due to anxiety but not due to HIV. BUT never ever have an intercourse without a condom. Its just a thin film of protection, in fact, so thin, like another layer of a skin, why not use it if its going to protect you from any diseases. You are safe this time but going forward stick to condoms.
Thank you for your reply. This has taught me many lessons and your words are quite right.
Not possible! I don't want to go into extreme detail but I've read about this, the p24 protein is very high during the start of the infection. There is a direct relationship between the p24 and antibodies, when the p24 is low, the antibodies are already present. You can read about it. Anyways, no need to worry now, you are negative! Hiv tests are always accurate after the window period, window period for combo test is 28 days. Move on. And good luck with your marriage.
Thank you for your comment, has helped ease my mind more and low and behold, rash is going too.
Keep up the good work helping people and their worries.
If duo teats are conclusive at 4 weeks then why window period is for 3 months ?
Why lot of individuals like me had to go through lot of anxieties till 3 months or may be 6 months ??
Window period of 3rd gen tests are 3 months 4th gen tests are conclusive at 28 days ,read the blogs mate
You mean to say , if we tested with 4th gen DUO test and no way to do again retest at 3 months or 6 months right?
yes thats what the major organizations say
we dont have any common standards for testing , in hospital some says 3 months some of them says 6 months . We dont have clear idea.
