Learning about the Accuracy of the HIV PCR Test

Q:  I am afraid that I have been exposed to HIV in the past 6 weeks. I had unprotected sex with someone that may have the virus. Although I do not know for sure if he has HIV, I would rather not depend on his word alone. I have been trying to find a test that will provide me with early detection and accurate results. My research has led me to your company and the HIV PCR test. Can you tell me more about the accuracy of HIV PCR test that you offer? I need results that I can rely on so I can put my mind at ease.

A:  The HIV DNA PCR test can provide reliable results very early after an exposure, and it is considered conclusive at 28 days post exposure. If you believe you may have been exposed to the virus it is definitely a good idea to get tested.
