Another Test Question

Dear Doc

I am sure you are tired of answering these type of questions but just a quick one...I had unprotected oral sex exactly 6 weeks ago. Would I waste my time to go for an Elisa test today?

Regards
Joe

No Joe. Most Elisa's are very sensitive, and will most probably be positive after 6 weeks if you were indeed infected. So, go for the test now, and repeat it again 6 weeks later. If negative, accept it and enjoy your life. By the way, the risk with oral sex seems to be lower than with vaginal and anal intercourse.
