Hello. Please i need your help and advice.
7.5 months ago i had a sexual intercourse (anal also) with a possible hiv-hcv woman.
It was protected but i had a sore that could possible be exposed during.
So far i have done too many tests for hiv (RNA & ab ) which have all come negative.
For hcv i tested 3 times with antibody test.
All negative.
All this time i have been suffering from extreme anxiety that i contracted something from that intercourse.
Are my results conclusive?
Can i have been hcv+ and tests till 7 months not pick it up?
If symptoms were present at the first month should i have tested positive until 7 months?
Thanks in advance everyone and each of you

I think you can relax about HCV infection. If you don't show Hep C antibodies at 7+ months you're not infected.
