repeat test at 6 months ? do two day matter?

GOOD MORNING

Before two days I did test hiv fourth generation in exactly 178 days from the contact. Came out negative . I read somewhere on the internet after that there should be a repeat test at 6 months ie it said in 180 days. You should re 'm going to do tests because I went two days earlier at the Living am , I can not understand if these two days Make Difference?

Thanks

Welcome to e health forum.

You need not worry nor there is a need for repeating the tests.

You can consider the test results as conclusive that you do not have HIV.

Good morning and thank you for your answer . To understand it does not matter that the examination was made earlier by two days , I will not because I have problems sticking my mind? No problem with the result by 2 days earlier?

Since it has already been about 6 months, the test result is acceptable. Test results are more reliable when they are done as late as possible. A Negative test result at 6 months is more convincing than a test after 4 weeks post exposure.

A day or two (plus or minus) does not make too much of a difference.

I hope this helps.
