Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I had used with a prostitute who I think is HIV positive.

Dear customer,

Thank you for your reply.

I understand. What test did you do?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I done it at the sexual health clinic. I don't a test at 3 day 2 weeks and 4 weeks all came back negative.
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I think it was the 4th generation one.

Dear customer,

Thank you for your reply.

A 4th generation test is very very accurate after 4 weeks and you can trust the result. However, a confirmatory test needs to be done after 45 days. This is just according to the guideline and I am sure that the test result will continue to be negative and you are HIV negative.

Thank you!

Does this make sense to you? Please reply.

Thank you!
