5 days 2 times a day. this the second day of

my tablets. I would like to know your opinion.

Doctor :  
No, the chances are very less
Doctor :  
as you also have a negative test as well

You should wait for another 10 days from now

but refrain from it

Believe in your doc and the test as well
User :   ok doctor
