3 months is when a conclusive negative test can be obtained. Your test is unlikely to change but get that 3 month test.
No that is not going to effect the test.
Thanks for your swift response!
I did ask if I should retest at 3 months but the doctor said no as 4th generation tests are so sensitive and he has seen not one test out of 10,000 or so turn negative after 8 weeks... However, i take your opinion on board and will take a 3 month test as I guess this not only covers international guidelines but ensures no-one 'falls through the net' so to speak and is finally conclusive.
Out of interest, when immunosuppression does lengthen a window period; are we talking chemo, transplant rejection drug at very high doses? And if so, how long is the window period lengthened for these cases?
sorry meant turn positive after 8 weeks
We use the CDC 3 month window period.
Yes, chemo and things like that. When talking to Dr's they will tell you to test at 6 months. But even then 3 months is really conclusive, again using CDC guidelines.
OK, thanks for your help.
