Hi Almost 12 Weeks Thanks for getting in touch with us. In reality there is no difference between testing 11 weeks and 12 weeks post exposure and it would make no difference to your prognosis if the diagnosis was positive at 11 or 12 weeks. 12 weeks is the recommended test interval. If it were me, I would ensure that I took no risk with anyone else's health and, I would wait, just so that the result was absolutely conclusive. I hope that this helps. Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Limited
