[Question #4863] Test results conclusive?

25 months ago
Dear sir,

I am feeling anxious about the past handjob exposure.  I have been told that it’s a no risk event sir.. but still to relieve my anxiety i took HIV 1 and HIV2  RNA test, p24 antigen test and HIV Duo test at 10thday .. results was negative.

Again on 33rd day (almost 5 th week) taken HIV Duo test (IVth gen) result was negative. 

I have had no further exposure. Do i need to take follow up test again ??

  I want to ask in your professional opinion that the HIV Rna test results  at 10th day and HIV duo test results at 33rd day will be considered conclusive sir? Considering my exposure sir.

Welcome back. But based on our discussion a month ago, you know exactly what I'm going to say. As discussed there, hand-genital contact doesn't transmit HIV or any other STD. The combination of test results you have had are conclusive and you can be 100% certain you do not have HIV. No more testing is needed.
