Ongoing anxiety

Hi guys, firstly thank you for your service. I understand this type of post is a reoccurring theme – I had a low exposure October 2017 and have used the Biosure product 9 times since; 4 times at various stages during the window period and 5 times outside. Each has been negative. Every time I notice something peculiar with my body I immediately revert back to the anxiety of having HIV. Can I finally put my mind to rest? My last test was 50 weeks post exposure and of course was negative. Thanks!

Hi AnxiousFella. Firstly I would like to thank you for choosing BioSure, we are extremely grateful for your feedback. The chances of 1 test giving you an incorrect result is virtually zero, seeing as you have conducted 9 I would conclude your result is negative. We all have many things to worry about in our lives but for you HIV should not be one of them. I would recommend against testing again, unless you have another potential exposure as this will only prolong the acceptance of your negative test result. I hope this has helped put your mind at rest but please don't hesitate to contact me further. Kindest regards Francesca Bard, BioSure (UK) Ltd
