According to most experts a pcr rna test is close to 100% 10-12 days after exposure. It means you dont have hiv in your blood. Valid for hiv type1. But its not a diagnostic test. Have a duo for completely rulett out any infection of both hiv1 and 2. In my opinion you are home free.

I had one of those test and it came back not detectable, but I had mine until 9months after exposure along with multiple Elisa test. I called the lab and they claim is very reliable. Good luck bro

The result means the chance you have HIV is under one in a million. e combination of negative RNA plus antibody at 1 months will be 100% conclusive. In the meantime, stop asking about it. The replies aren't going to change!

My exposure was condum protected but result came below 20copies / ml

Below 20 copies means that HIV was not present for detection.. So it means most likely you are NEGATIVE, the CDC, AIDS CANADA and most advisors here on Medhelp recommend an antibody test at 3 months to make sure.. I been in your shoes, try to think about something else. Best of luck
