Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through the reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It is a confirmatory test. It is done after one year of exposure. You are free from HIV. You can allay fears of HIV from that exposure. Forget about the incident and lead a normal and safe life. You can get back for any clarification.

 

Hi doctor,

Thank you for the reply. But my HIV 1 PCR RNA report shows not detectable instead of not detected. Does it make any difference? Please tell me what my HIV 1 PCR RNA report indicates. Whether positive or negative? Do I need to repeat the test?
