Since I live in Spain the best i have is the igg. 8 weeks should be good right ?
You have said about the high rate of false positive and since I am abroad you would not recommend testing.
If your IgG test is negative that would be comforting for you but again, you risk a false positive. If you were in the US, you could confirm a low positive index value with the western blot if that happened but being in Spain, I’m not sure that option would be available to you unless you wanted to ship a sample to the US. I’m still not clear that doing a test is necessary or would be useful in your situation
Would you recommend testing at all ? Even if I was in the USA ?
Thanks for you help once again and keep up the great work!
