Hi it detect antibodies. after 3 year of exposure it mostly give accurate results because most of the times antibodies are developed. However In few case antibodies may not developed yet.and may give false negative result. If want to confirm your result go for confirmatory hiv testing once. you can go with p24 antigen or pcr or 4th generation elisa.
thanks for using health care magic.
