I have a question regarding a combination of test results.
The exposure was condom protected insertive oral sex. I'm 99.9% certain the condom remained intact, and yes, everything except that nagging voice in the back of my head is screaming zero risk.
The first test was completed at day 44 and was a 4th gen rapid. The nurse indicated that the test was non-reactive and then showed it to me, which got the anxiety up and running. The top window had a clear pink control band right in the middle. The second window (p24) was completely clear with the exception of blood that leached up the sides. At first glance the bottom window (Ab) was also clear with the exception of blood that had leached into the very bottom portion of the window and then up the sides. Looking at the test very closely (mistake) I saw a faint, thin, slanted line that coincided exactly with where the blood stopped. It was not close to the middle of the window, much thinner than the control band and was not straight across but slanted/arched. When I questioned her about it she said that was not where the reactive band would show up, it was too narrow of a line, and not straight across. She then indicated that she had seen reactive tests and that this was not one.
That voice kept nagging so I went to a second clinic at day 47 due to the first being closed. They only had the ClearView antibody test using a finger stick. That test was reported non-reactive - no, I didn't look at it.
1) Not going to ask about the risk because I think we can all say it was zero.
2) Is there any reason to doubt the first test?
3) Is the combo of the negative p24 window on the 4th gen + the non-reactive on the separate antibody conclusive at nearly 7 weeks? I would think that if there were enough antibodies to completely clear p24 from the blood stream then an antibody only test would be reactive.
Thank you for your help!! It is greatly appreciated.
