I think the risk of a false positive for you is around 75%. We simply cannot trust this test at all – not the IgG and not the supplemental. I’ve had index values as high as 17 not confirm as positive by western blot – and this fellow did the test twice, months apart.
The results will vary greatly – you could do it again and it could be negative, correct.
Do the blot, you need to be clear about all of this , in my opinion
Yes, and 12 weeks from any sexual encounter is best
