Please see, the HIV RNA test also called by various other names such as HIV NAAT test or HIV NAT test or HIV RNA PCR test – this is the earliest hiv test to detect hiv infection and has the shortest window period.

It can come positive as early as 3 days after the exposure.

3 days to 6 weeks is the time where about 95% cases are detected.

As you see by around 45 days or so 95% of the hiv cases will be detected with hiv rna test

However most cases are detected around 7 to 14 days after exposure, so around 11 days after exposure hiv rna test has high detection rate so very highly reliable around this time after the exposure

In your case for the reasons I had discussed during my answer to your previous question too your hiv test is certainly expected to come negative, so please not to be scared!

Wishing you all the very best with your hiv tests!

Wishing you the best health!

All the very best!

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.
