Well, We assume that you had unprotected anal/veginal sex. 10.2 weeks is extreme good result. Test at 12 weeks to be conclusive. We strongly expect your result would be negative.

Take care

Thank you for your reply... I wanted to know what is accuracy of this antibody test result in India? Do I need to go for an other test ?

Well, most specialists consider 4 weeks ag/ab conclusive and 6-8 weeks antibody conclusive. But we follow cdc guidelines which 12 weeks conclusive. As I said above you test will remain negative.
