More importantly, did you wait long enough before testing? You should do the antibody test at the three month point.

I did the HIV-1 RNA PCR test too and it too is inconclusive. (copies = 20)

I was exposed a year ago.

I don't know what to take out of these tests all tests are inclonclusive.

Since it's been over three months, take the HIV antibody test - that will be conclusive. If that is negative, then you are HIV negative. If you still experience symptoms after that, test for HTLV and other infections.

Why do you suggest HTVL? Can you give me more detail about the same. Thanks.

Akar is right - usually when an antibody test is positive, it is then reflexed to a western blot test, which is why I said to take another antibody test.
