Hello and thank you for your question. My name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Please confirm: following your initial HIV exposure, for which you have been tested multiple times including the two you listed above, have you had any other exposures?

no
HIV and AIDS Expert: Richard Han, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

Thank you for that information. With multiple tests done since your exposure, all of which I assume were negative, and the most recent 4th generation test (checking for HIV antibodies and HIV p24 antigens) at 178 days out from exposure and a final rapid antibody test 6.5 months out from exposure all being negative, I believe you can safely say you are 100% negative for HIV. Can I help you with anything else today?

there is need of further test
HIV and AIDS Expert: Richard Han, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

With all of the tests you've already done, no, I do not feel that you require any further testing. Any other questions?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
