Yes, it is sufficient and rules out the infection by more than 90%.
How accurate are hiv blood tests?
antibodies to hiv virus will appear after 2 to 12 weeks time.
most the test will be positve after this time , this period is called window period.
enzyme immunoassay ( ELISA) is a screening test with > 99.5 % sensitivity and good screening test.
western blot is confirmation test
if any doubt first do ELISA if positive this have to confirmed by western blot test after window period.
if a hiv postive mother born a baby and the baby testhiv negative at 2 months with an hivtest that takes a few days is the baby hiv free
Hi, testing for HIV is recommended at 14 days, 1 -2 months and 4-5 months of age. The test must look for presence of virus and not antibody. If 2 tests are positive, baby is positive, if 2 are negative baby is negative. However if breast feeding by positive mother, more tests may be needed even after 5-6 months till breast feeding is going on. Hope this helped. Dr Madhuri Bagde Consultant ObGyn
