On July 7th 2017, I believe a girl who I was seeing at the time used my toothbrush without my permission. I didn't think anything of it at the time, but now realize that that was a very bad idea. I don't think she has Hep C, but I don't know 100%.
My anxiety is bad, and I can't wait 6 months to get definitive results from the antibody test. The PCR test says it takes 3 weeks, but no where on the internet does it say it is a definitive stand alone test. I imagine I would need to take both the antibody test and the PCR test, but at how many weeks after exposure can I conclusively say I am negative so I can move on with my life and stop worrying about this. Is it possible to be conclusively negative before 6 months? I am prepared to fork over the money for the PCR test, but want to be sure I wait long enough to get conclusive results? The CDC website just says the PCR test "can" detect the virus at 3 weeks. It doesn't say anything about being conclusive.
Thank you very much for your help.
