Testing more than once... should I?

Hey, I am such a worrier and just wanted to ask for a bit of peace of mind… I took a test 11 months post unprotected sex and it came back negative, but have seen lots of posts about testing more than once… should I?

Hi worrier! A negative test result 12 weeks post possible exposure is reliable. You have waited 11 months before testing therefore there is no need to test again and your result is negative. I believe re-testing will prolong your acceptance of the negative result. I hope this helps and thank you for choosing BioSure. Kindest regards Francesca Bard, BioSure (UK) Ltd
