Hi, thank you fore reaching out to us.

We understand your concern regarding your concern regarding exposure to the virus. However we need more information regarding your current condition. We strongly advise you to seek medical attention with a doctor to confirm your HIV status. The self test sometimes gives out false negative result and negative result does not mean you are free from the virus. Confirmatory test via laboratory test needed to be done so that more accurate status of HIV infection can be reached.

If you have further question and need a second opinion, please do note hesitate to contact us at (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online via chat, phone call or audio call.
