Is the 2 Month-Window Period Enough?

Mr. Pozzie. I hope you don't mind if I ask. Is a 2-months window period non-reactive result may give me at least 70% assurance that I do not have HIV? Or in your own opinion how many percent of assurance does this 2-months Test prove? Cause as I've red in your older statements. Rapid test right now are all in 4th Generation and can detect even a minimal amount of antibodies even if it's just a-month that is passed by. Is that for real sir? By the way Sir I got tested from Hi-precision laboratories. Their facilities are quite impressing And, I hope so that this also reflects with their laboratory instruments. Thanks Sir!

"How Can That Be?"


My husband recently took GAMCA medical exam for he is supposed to work in a Middle East country, according to the GAMCA clinic referred to him, he needed a repeat of some blood tests due to some problem, so he went back only to find out that it was for a repeat of HIV test/screening because the first result was reactive. Confident that it was  
all a mistake, my husband allowed the repeat just to get it over with. But the repeat showed another reactive result (reactive 1.11). he was told that they (the GAMCA clinic) would take another sample of his blood to be taken to DOH for confirmatory tests. but it will take another 3-4 weeks to get the result.

Symptoms During Window Period?

Sir gusto ko lang po sana itanong. Kailangan po ba magkaroon ka ng kahit isa sa symptoms sa loob ng window period bago mo masabi na maaaring positive ka sa hiv? Salamat po.



Sir, I would like to ask something. Does it need to have at least one symptom in the window period for your to be positive for HIV? Thank you.
