Hello and welcome. I'm Dr Chip
Unfortunately when the test is negative after only 19 days post possible exposure, it can't be considered a true negative since some patients don't seroconvert untill the three month point.
So, while I think you are truly HIV negative, you need to be retested in three months. If it's negative at that point, you're good to go.
Please let me know if you need any more information.
I understand but only if the test is positive can it be considered accurate. The negative test needs the three month followup with a Western Blot test
