To be clear, the last time you had intercourse was 8 weeks ago?

Also, just so I know, was it a low-risk (condom) or higher risk (no condom, possibly HIV positive individual) interaction?

Most likely HIV positive partner. I gave oral and found out later, but it was said in a roundabout way. Don't know what he did if I was knocked out. Possibly rape.
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

I'm sorry to hear that - that's a terrible situation.

However, based on that information, and the 4th gen test, and 8 weeks out, you don't need to test it again, you are in the safe zone if the test was negative.

I have seven week test negative but I can get an eight week.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Test done.
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

I am most comfortable with the test at week 8.

I think you should have one last one done at week 8 and then you are 100% negative when that comes back negative.

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.

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!!
