Hello, about 2 months ago I had a risky encounter with someone I didn't know. him and I (both males) had sex for about 2 minutes.

I went and had a HIV RNA pcr test don't at 17 days after possible exposure and again at 25 days after possible exposure.

Both came back negative

Am I in the clear here?

Hello @Osiris88‍, thank you for opening this discussion. Let me tag some other members who can possibly weigh in.

Hi everyone,  how are you doing today? emoticon cute

Can anyone shed any light on HIV testing? Would two negative tests after 17 and 25 days indicate that a person is negative for HIV? How long does it take for HIV symptoms to show up or for a test to be positive in your experience?

Feel free to share any thoughts or advice here!

Take care,

HIV testing

The virus can remain dormant for years even decades, only certain things with your immune system can wake up the virus but today's testing. I feel can detect it but I am not sure...
