Hello, I want to ask one question after sex with HIV positive I made in a aidscenter tests in 3, 3.5 and in 6 months (6 months without the 6th day), but in aidscenter was told that they did to me the express tests. Tell please what do you think about the express tests the dough made in a aidscenter? Whether they are reliable? IFA test the most exact if I correctly understood?

Hello and thank you for contacting us.

If you are contacting us from the USA or Canada, these express "rapid" tests are highly accurate at the 3month mark and beyond. IFA tests look to detect antibodies and are highly accurate within the weeks after the exposure. It sounds like you have received reliable tests, but I recommend contacting the aidscenter in regard to your results to clarify which test you got and ask for the accuracy. I do not want to make guesses about your testing and give you misguided answers by accident.

Best,

Caroline
