Our expert says:
In counselling before HIV testing it is important to reinforce that there can be three possible results when one does an HIV test 1. negative 2.positive 3.indeterminate, All tests should be repeated if you in the window period and a positive test is always repeated with a more sensitive test eg Western blot for confirmation .
if you have had a negative result and are worried it is important that you repeat it or do PCR test (more expensive )
