Most people have at one time or another
The infectious specialist working at world renoun clinic told me other wise different. She has told me antibodies can take up as long as 1 year on regular antibody tests. She advised me a 4th generation pcr at 4 months is conclusive.
Your world specialist is totally incorrect.
In an adult, a positive HIV antibody test result means that the person is infected, a person with a negative or inconclusive result may be in the “window for 4 to 6 weeks but occasionally up to 3 months after HIV exposure. Persons at high risk who initially test negative should be retested 3 months after exposure to confirm results
UK Fourth Generation Testing
The need for a repeat HIV test if still within the window period after a specific exposure should be discussed. Although fourth generation tests shorten the time from exposure to seroconversion a repeat test at three months is still recommended to definitively exclude HIV infection.
I will test one more time at 6 months and once at a year I'll keep you posted on results in the mean time I am staying abstinent!
