Broken condom occurred with an unknown female for about 15-20 seconds.
16-17 days after exposure I had bloodwork done with my family doctor.
The results were all negative.
My location is Toronto
My only concern is that I have been on Immuran(Azathioprine) for the better part of 14 years. Could that have affected the accuracy of my test?
The results are pasted below.

I know the test was conducted slightly early. Are there any statistics of accuracy 16-17days post exposure while on immunosuppressant's?

Thank you,

Hello and thank you for your questions!

Unfortunately the information you provided does not tell us which test you took. Only a few of them can detect HIV presence (genetic material) at an early time, so your test may or may not be accurate. Because I do not know which test you took, I cannot provide you with percentage statistics. The immunosuppressants do not affect your HIV testing. It may be in your best interest to retest in a few weeks (4-6) and receive a final conclusive test at the 3 month post-exposure mark.

I hope this helps. If you need further clarification, please provide us with the test you took (ask your clinic) and get back to us!

Best,

Caroline
