hiv testing
hi guys. i was involved in an unprotected sex last year on 3 Dec 2003. since then i have been so worried about the possibility of having cotracted hiv. on 26 jan 04 i went for an elisa 1 & 2 and the result was negative. i panicked because somebody told me that i must waite for three months. i couldnt waite for three months so i did a PCR and it was also negative.
i dont know whether i should go for another test or i can now say that i am negative there is no need for further tests?
they say the elisa and pcr is very accurate - is this really true?
please help i am really worried guys

Stop to be worried. You did the right tests and they are negative believe them. This is only true if you have had protected sex since then.
