Hiv Western blot test reliability
Doctors, I had an unfortunate risky exposure (potential). I did a eclia test on day 30- result was negative . I did western blot on day 32- result was negative . I had all textbook symptoms of exposure. I'm worried sick. Could someone tell me how reliable these tests are. Also if these are not reliable for a early detection, could you suggest the name of the test that I should be taking. ?
