    Dear dr.
    Dr tan says that test should be repeated after 6 months after exposure. You and other Dr. consider my testing conclusive 3.5 post exposure.Why ?

    Till now it has been more than 3.5 months post exposure and this thing is still bothering me very much despite all the negative tests. It is because of this 6 months testing guideline. Please Dr. Jonathan I beg you clear this. I can't take this anymore. I have spent hours convincing myself that I do not have HIV but still. Please Dr. this is inhibiting my normal life functioning.

    As the issue is anxiety, I would recommend seeing a psychologist/psychiatrist for counselling. From an HIV infection point of view, there is no medical issue - tests are clear and conclusive.

    Hi. I would consider your testing to be conclusively negative. The index value is not significant and as long as it is not at the positive limit there is no need to worry.

    started a topic Index value

    Index value

    Dear Dr.
    I have had 4 4th generation tests in total for HIV post exposure.
    1st test as baseline immediately after exposure( index value - 0.2)
    2nd test immediately after completing PEP( index value- 0.16)
    3rd test 28 days post PEP( index value - 0.11)
    4th test 65 days post PEP and 96 days post exposure ( index value - 0.18)

    My question is that are these index value significant I mean than in the 4th test the value increased from 0.11 to 0.18. Do these values fluctuate everytime and can increase or decrease?
