I have a few follow up questions for you if you dont mind doc. I am really nervous ab returning to my girlfriend that I cheated on during this incident. I appreciate your response to my first question with such convincing evidence. I just want to know why you say my results are conclusive. Where does that answer come from? Is it from experience? Is it a known FACT that a 30 hiv rna is medically conclusive. Can I return to my regular sex life without worry? Are you an expert in HIV testing and what not? I am just an anxious mess with all of this. Thank you so much for your time. You have no idea how important it is to me, my life, and my career.
Expert:  Dr. German replied 1 year ago.
Yes, I currently live in Dominican Republic a country in which HIV is a health public issue and I have worked with HIV patients on a daily basis for 10 years .

With a negative HIV RNA TEST after 30 days , You can say 100 % you are not infected.

You can return to your regular sex life without worry ,stop thinking about this , you are completely fine .

Ok. Is this test as accurate as the antibody test at 6 months? Everyone calls it the gold standard and that alone makes me nervous already. I just want to push past this with an expert opinion. Is the Hiv rna the most sensitive test on the market? Is this the best test to take period? Do you think i should retest? Is this test considered conclusive bc at 40 days my blood would be extremely potent in my blood stream right now? Would my antibodies already be built up from my neg test at 25 days - 40 days to effect my rna test. Thank u so much
Expert:  Dr. German replied 1 year ago.
You do not need to take an antibody test .
The RNA TEST is the more accurate one in the market , it detects the HIV virus itself in your blood instead of the antibodies your body produces to combat the virus .

The results are already conclusive at 30 days , as consequence , if the results are negative at 40 days , 10 days more over the window period , the results are 100 % accurate .
