Hiv duo-Conclusiveness
Hi, I believe I got infected by a syringe 6 weeks back. I did a Hiv-duo test(metropolis) at 31 days and 41 days both of which were negative. However the observed  value has increased from 0.20 to 0.35. I have two questions 1.)Is it something to be concerned about as the values have increased?? 2.)Are the tests conclusive at 6 weeks that I don't have HIV. Thanks

No ...the raise is not significant. 4th generation Duo test with p24 antigen and antibodies will rule out HIV infection by 6 weeks as per literature. However olden days thinking with antibody test (ELISA TYPE) is 12 weeks (or 3 months ) is final or to rule out all possibilities of contracting HIV.
