Regarding HIV test
I had sex one month ago and after one month I did an HIV ELISA test and the result was non-reactive, If I go for another HIV test after 3 months what will be the result? Will it be same or different?

Which Elisae you have taken ? Usually HIV DUO is more specific. I would suggest you to go for HIV DUO and Western Blot at 43rd day. It will give you earliest possible outcome of your exposure.

Usually if you contact HIV it shows in the blood test only after 3 months. to be sure you can get your partner tested. After 3 months it is not visible in the blood test than you certainly do not have HIV and need not worry and there is no need for the test again. But for safety always use precaution in the future. It is best to get the HIV test done from men HIV Centre (ART Centre) approved by government.
