Hello....confirmatory test three months after the exposure is always recommended. because by then antibodies would have formed if antigen is present in blot... Wastern blot is confirmatory test... infections, medications, most vaccinations, putting on weight, eating or drinking anything before the test, use of alcohol or recreational drugs, could affect test result. There is only 0.1% chance of HIV through sexual intercourse.
