Dear Doc,

I had high risk sex on Oct 27th, 2009 Night. I was really scared..next day I went to a Doctor.. and he suggested a few tests. I gave my blood sample on 4th November for which the results came negative.

Following tests were carried on:

1. HIV-1 RNA(Qualitative) Detection: MEthod-(RT-PCR)

2. HIV-DUO(Serum) by CMIA(IV Generation test)

HIV-p24 antigen detection, serum by ELFA

Nucleic acid detection: HIV-Proviral DNA, blood by PCR.

Now, my question is since the test sample was as early as the eighth day; can I rely completely on the results? or should I take another test in 3 months. Please advice.
