Was tested using HIV using HIV ab, HIV 1/2, eia, with reflex 65 days from a possible infection, how accurate this test?And should I get tested again?

Was tested using HIV using HIV ab, HIV 1/2, eia, with reflex 65 days from a possible infection, how accurate this test?And should I get tested again?

Yes and no: Usually people tested within the first 3-6 weeks of an exposure can have a false negative, but 65 days out should be enough time to have a positive test, so if it was negative, it's very likely it is correct. That said, if you have had a repeat exposure you are concerned about, you would need to be retested. ...Read more

No RNA test needed: This largely duplicates your previous question. EIA alone is sufficient. RNA testing normally is done only when there is concern about very early infection, before antibody appears (i.e. exposure within past 4-6 weeks or symptoms of acute HIV infection) and in known-infected persons to measure viral load. (FYI, "with reflex" only means that confirmatory testing is automatic if EIA is positive.) ...Read more
