HIV Test Results!

I went for HIV Test (fourth generation ECLIA Cobas 6000) at 28th Day, it was negative (0.142). Then i took the test again at 40th Day, it was still negative (0.194), then number was increasing, so i took the test again after 2 days (at 43rd day), it was still negative (0.214), but number has been kept increasing. Does this increasing number in repitive tests mean anything?

NO,it means nothing.Test at 90 days and it will be fully conclusive,so far so good.

It will do that,it means nothing.Just worry about your test result at the 90 day mark.

A duo test is conclusive at 4 weeks or anytime after.
