Hello, Query regarding reliability of this test. Driving myself round the bend at my stupidity. I have had 2 negative 4th Gen tests, one test at one month since exposure and then a follow up at 9 weeks. I took this test at 14 and a half weeks and all have come back negative. Could I now put this in the past and declare myself Negative? I'm honestly going insane.

Hi Aly83 Thanks for getting in touch. Given the timing of each test after your potential exposure, each negative test result would be reliable and conclusive on their own. Given all of the negative results returned in series, there is virtually no chance that all could be incorrect. The combined set of results are reliable and conclusive. I hope that this answers your question and helps to put you at ease. If you require any further information please don't hesitate to contact me again. Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Limited
