Brief Answer: Hi.Cam you share some more information please? Detailed Answer: Hi, I deeply understand your concern. HIV infection cannot be detected during the window period. Home HIV tests are not 100% specific. Result might be false negative. Have you had a recent exposure to HIV? When was the exposure? Please feel free to share this information to help you better.
