I got my results from an HIV 1 RNA, QL TMA test back. I was negative!
However, I'm still kind of freaking out. I had blood drawn 9 days after my potential exposure. I've been reading up on the test itself. Folks say that it's not useful before 10 days, some 11 days, some 5 days.
Anyone have an idea about this? Is this negative result just void because of how early I took it?
Can I stop worry so much about having HIV-1? It seems that the test is pretty useful in detecting the virus itself. If this came back negative (along with my anti body test) is it safe to say that I probably don't have HIV-1?
Thank you, thank you!
