hiv/aids

Dear Doc

I recently went for an hiv rapid test and it tested negative. The last time I had sexual relations was about 3 years ago. I only recently realised he was not faithfull at that time, and I decided to get tested. Should I go for another confirmation test?Or is the " window period"  okay.

Thanks,

Dear Elijah
This is way past the window period, so you are probably safe. The rapid tests are not as sensitive as the full blood test, so if you want to be 100% sure you can go for the lab blood test too.
