Hi, I had a one time...
Hi,
I had a one time exposure with a female CSW in Portugal.
I had a CSR RNA test after 11 days and it came back negative for HIV, Hep B and Hep C. I was told by the site that this test is only 96% accurate. Is this due to false positive results and not false negatives?
I am worried sick!

I have looked up on lots of sites and can see no mention of risk of false negative, only false positive.

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.
