Worried about negative result

Hello! Just thought I would leave a message here for some clarification. I performed the BioSure test over 2 years after a potential exposure and came out negative. My concern is that I finished a course of antibiotics for my sinus infection a few days before the test.

Would this have any impact on my result? Is my negative result conclusive?

Hi Anxious003, Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Antibiotics will not affect the result of the test. If you have received a negative result 2 years since your last possible exposure then your result is accurate and conclusive - you do not need to retest. I hope this helps. Kindest regards, Becky

Can I please get an answer on the above? I can see all messages were responded apart from this - feeling very anxious. Thank you.
