Hi sir on 24 April 2018 I done protected vaginal sex and received unprotected oral sex with sex worker on 26 May I done HIV 1 and 2 antibody test at local lab and it came non reactive. On 12 June I done combo test 4th generation on day 42 it’s came non reactive and value are 0.24 . Then on 12 June I done HIV 1 and 2 antibody test its came non reactive. Am I free or could my resultĀ  change at 12 weeks? Please clarify sir thanks

Hi Mohit Thanks for getting in touch with BioSure. The 4th generation laboratory test at 6 weeks would be conclusive and reliable. There is a tiny chance that this would be a false negative result. The other antibody only tests that you have performed would be encouraging but would not be reliable until 12 weeks post infection. I hope that this helps.
