Explanation Of The Results Of HIV Examination?
Hello … I want to ask … what is the accuracy of the HIV test by using the one step test tool after 34hrs to take risky actions?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The One Step Examination tool is one of the rapid HIV tests which is a 3rd generation HIV test. The 3rd generation examination is an examination that looks at the presence of antibodies against HIV 1 and HIV 2. The window period for the 3rd generation HIV test is 3 months, so if you have already done the examination 34 days after the risky action and the results are negative, you are advised to repeat the examination 3 months after the risky action. If at 34 days you have received positive results, you are advised to re-examine the laboratory to confirm the results. Rapid HIV testing is only intended for screening, so you are still advised to carry out laboratory tests to get more accurate results. We recommend that you do a doctor's examination for further evaluation.
If you want to get more accurate results 1 month after a risky action, you can use a 4th generation HIV test that is already accurate to be used 4 weeks after the risky action. It is best to avoid taking risky actions to avoid the possibility of contracting HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.
