2 days back it was not really an exposure, It was protected but it was with sex worker so am still kind of worried
yes but i can't wait for 3 months, am talking about PCR RNA test which suppose to give result in 2 weeks right
I heard PCR RNA test give accurate result in 9-11 days .. thats what CDC site says
r u sure ?
what i undestand that HIV PCR test look for the virus itself
so why would the CDC says it takes 9-11 to detect
hmm most of the doctors have adviced me to do the test after 2 weeks and it would be accurate that time
then what are the standards ?
thats for the antibody test ?
thats what i was told
hmm well u r the first to tell this, I am sure many doctors even on the site won't agree
anyway thanks for ur help
so you think i dont need to do the test ?
but whats the difference between PCR test and the antibodies then ?
if both to be done after 3 months
hmm anyway i think i better go to the hospital and seek doctor's advice
I've talked to a lab doctor and he told me 2 weeks test for PCR RNA would be fine and enough. The advise of doing a test of 3 months is only as regular checking. so i believe i should be releaved after doing the test in 2 weeks since i wan't exposed to high risk since i was protected ? right
