HIV

Hi would a hep b vaccine 1 booster during the time of infection 2 weeks after possible exposure effect the biosure results….I have had negative results 9 10 11 weeks and 80days i read from a post the that 80 day mark would be conclusive! I’m still worried because I start to think that you guys have tested this from infected and non infected blood not from varicose people that have been exposed to the hiv virus…do I have too wait longer and test again at 12 week mark or longer?  Have swollen lymph nodes in neck for the past 8 weeks..the risk was sexual and was a protected one was a small cut abrasion on base of penis which is causing the worry …been stressed and worried a lot all tests done with biosure..

Mr dull, a hep b vaccination would not affect the result of a BioSure test. The only 2 things that could affect the result are if you have been vaccinated against HIV or if you have taken any form of antiretroviral treatment for HIV. Although a negative test result at 80 days is unlikely to change, I cannot say the test is conclusive until 12 weeks post exposure. I hope this makes sense.
