[Question #4787] 28th day rna 4th gen

27 months ago
I wanted to update you and ask questions. I am hoping these questions will also help people on here.

I did the rna pcr and 4th generation on the 28th day. It cam back negative as you predicted.

I am a bit confused about the timing of testing. I have read in other post that I can be 100% sure I was not infected with hiv at this time.  Is this correct?

Do I need another hiv test at 6 weeks?  

I read that Dr. Hook said in another post that there were about 200 cases of hiv 2 in the usa.  Do I have to retest for this? If this is true, it would be almost impossible to get infected.

It has been 50 days without any sores/ blister on my penis.  Can I have unprotected sex with my regular partner without fear of infecting her? Do you think it is safe.

I want to put all this behind me.

Dr. Handsfield and I have both assured you that your exposure was no risk, that you did not need additional testing and informed you that future posts may be deleted with no answer.  I will provide a single answer to your repetitive, anxiety-driven post and then close this thread.  You need to put this all behind you and I fear that our answers are only feeding your unwarranted anxiety.

Your results have proven that you did not acquire HIV.

No

No need for further testing for HIV-2.
