what if a pcr dna hiv(qualitative) test is done after 9 days ie (extraction date) date of report 2 days later ie(11days later) is done and is negative , is that a final and a conclusive result , does that mean the person can carry on the his life without any worries of any futher tests ???
I have had the same experience...9 days tested with the HIV DNA (PCR Method) but my anxiety and fear is still very high. But have mixed information about test at 9 and 14 days. Can you clarify. if neg after 9 and 14 days...is that a sign to breath easier?
