Thanks for the help you provide which is highly apperciated,
My question is that I had a high risk exposure and tested PCR at 1 month and antibody tests every month till the six month post exposure and they all were negative, but throught this period I had antibiotics for about a month antibiotics were Tavanic and Tarivid which were for treatment of prostatitis, would this antibiotics delay anti-bodies? Or cause a false negative? Please help as I can't talk to my doctor.
Thanks,

Hello and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline. I am happy to answer your questions.

Your test results can be considered conclusive because the last test was taken after 3 months post exposure. Congratulations! In terms of your antibiotics, they do not have any effect on your test results. The only things that can affect your test window period are: chemotherapy, treatment for Hepatitis C, immunodeficiency disorders, and taking PEP/PrEP. You're in the clear!

I hope I have answered your question and provided you with some relief. If you have any more questions feel free to contact us again.

Sincerely,

Caroline
