Dear Doctor

I have a question about the 6 Weeks antibody and NAT test. I had a negative Rapid HIV test, and a negative pooled NAT test.

Afer risk period below ;

1. 8 Days (Antibody and NAT test) = Negative
2. 3 weeks (Antibody and NAT test) = Negative
3. 6 Weeks (Antibody and NAT test) = Negative

Do I need to test again since I was short of the 12 week mark?
