Posted by Pozziepinoy on 8:40 PM

Hi..! pozziepinoy..! i been already tested but according to my counselor the accuracy of the test is three months from the day that i had sex but i didn't tell to him that its just 2 months and two week..so this could be considered as accurate?


POZZIEPINOY’S RESPONSE

Hi there. 

Thank you for your email. Thank you for reading the blog.

The rule of thumb is get tested at 3 months and get tested again at 6 months post exposure. Usually we encourage early testing as HIV antibodies can also be detected even earlier that 3 months. However, if the result turns out negative, just repeat the test again at 6 months to give ample time for antibodies to be formed just in case there was indeed transmission of the virus.

I hope I was able to answer your concerns. Feel free to email me again if you have other questions.


Stay healthy,
Pozziepinoy
