Worked up



Got myself worked up again

Ok have got myself in a bit of a panic again sorry about this just need to double check I have taken 4 tests after a very low risk exposure it was oral. One at 41 days ( I know it’s outside the window) one at 103 days one at 287 days 313 days. Just i keep getting hung up on the 99.9 accuracy i know the one at 41 days is not conclusive but the other 3 are. Like is it really 1 out of 1000 that get a false negative? Because that seems like quite a high number to me. The days might vary by a week or so working it out from memory from the encounter I can’t remember the exact date.
