My advice would be to not worry and put this behind you. Your antibody test at 5 weeks would have detected about 95% of recently acquired HIV infections and your partner was unlikely to have HIV. Further, in NYC, if you were tested at the Health Department, in addition to the standard antibody blood test, it is likely that your blood was also tested by PCR at the same time. A combination of a negative antibody test and a negative PCR at any time more than 4 weeks following exposure is definitive evidence that you did not get HIV.

Thanks doc, and yes I was tested at a nyc health dept and your correct about the PCR testing. They take up 10 days for results to get back at you. Which I'm greatful I was negative, I guess its my anxiety playing with my head, its just scary doc but thanks for helping me put my mind at ease.
Glad we coul help. Take care. EWH
