Hi this is Dr Stan and I will help you today. At this point it is safe to say that you don't have HIV or Chlamydia or Gonorrhea. BUT,it can take 2 weeks to 6 months for your body to start making HIV antibodies. So to be absolutely safe, you should repeat the HIV test in one month and again in 6 months. The fact that you used a condum minimizes the chances, but to be absolutely safe, repeat the testing. Thank you for allowing me to help you today and a positive rating is always appreciated.
I would agree. Contracting HIV is highly unlikely under these circumstances. What I stated is the academic approach, but in practical every day medicine, I would agree with your doctor.
They are that accurate, 95-99%. Quest and Labcorp use the latest HIV tests. As I said, repeat the tests in one and 6 months to be 100% certain.
