Hello. I took a HIV 3rd Generation Insti test at 6 weeks exactly post exposure. Would you be able to have a look st the rapid test by sending it to you if possible? I just want to confirm it's definitely negative.

Hello doctor. Thank you. Could I ask I follow up question. I have spent hours zooming and out on the photo and changing the contrast of the picture on my phone and when I zoom in, it's like a can see a faint shadow.If this result was a positive result at 6 weeks would the test spot be completely clear?

It should be the same dot as the one you are seeing there, even if it positive.

So it is definitely negative.
