HIV PCR (-) at 2 wks and 4 months, Elisa 4thGen Ab/Ag (-) at 1,2,3,4 and 5 months, Ab immunochromatographic (-) at 6 months. Conclusive? or more test?

False-positives: Screening tests are designed to be highly sensitive so they don't miss anyone with the disease. However, they can be so sensitive that they occasionally give a false-positive result.

Is CMIA AG/AB at 9.5 months of exposure and 9 months ELISA hiv1/2 all negative.. is it enough although my symptoms? red spots, headache white tongue

See your doctor: I read your question, and then your procedures and the times do not agree. The difference between 9 months and 77 days is huge. A negatve HIV test at 6 months would be definative. A true exposure to HIV would prompt prophylactic treatment of HIV and your doctor can help you decide about that ...Read more
