Hello ... If you had protected sexual intercourse you don't have unless condom got torn during the intercourse....  HIV RNA Test is the only option available to detect HIV at an early stage, although you may be worried about the accuracy of the test. Research says HIV RNA Tests are around 99% accurate ,test has to done within 7 to 20 days.
