Any and all details about your encounter are now irrelevant. The one and only relevant point is that you engaged in unprotected, penetrative sex and therefore you need to have a test at 12 weeks.
Okay :) The antibody test on the 23rd day, is that a good indication by any chance?
Less than a month after exposure is more or less meaningless.
There are tests out there like the DUO that are great for "early" detection, but don't get confused...."early detection" is not the same as "conclusively negative!"
To truly be certain nothing other than an antibody test post 12 weeks.
Hm, cheers mate. I have never heard of the DUO test. The most accurate early detection test is probably a PCR RNA test (western blot). But the clinic I am at can only afford an antibody test. I might get that done in conjunction with the p24 antigen test but lets see. Thank you for your response though. Merry Xmas and a happy new year to you.
Thank you. But you can say Christmas and ditch the X. I am not a practising Christian , but I play one on TV and in the last two weeks or so I have not kicked a puppy.
Seriously though, don't fret too much about your misfortunate event. It is what it is and you cannot change it.
Save your time and money and just get a garden variety antibody test at 12 weeks.
The reason an antibody test is the most reliable is because it actually works with your immune system. After 3 months your body would have responded to an invader and produced enough antibodies. If there are no antibodies after 12 weeks, your good to go!
