Brief Answer: Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Detailed Answer: Thnaks for the query. How lomg after possible exposure did you do this tets. Generally values less than 0.90, like yours, are negative and it means that you are not affected by HIV. However,to be 100% sure, you should repeat HIV test 4-6 months after exposure and if index value is then less than 0.9, you can be sure that you dont have HIV. Wish you good health. Feel free to ask. Regards
