Thank you for choosing DoctorSpring.
I have reviewed your old consult. You had a negative HIV test on 21st January 2014 as per that consult. And you latest sexual encounter is of very low risk as per your description. A repeat testing at 6 or 12 weeks is only for 'technical completion'. In you case considering your low risk scenario you can skip the repeat test.
The reason I suggested a repeat test was because a negative test result would give you a reassurance.
If you plan to go for the test Azithromycin and Ebast will NOT affect the results.
Hope this helps
Feel free to ask followups

Thank you doc.
One more question. The place where I go, " Any Lab Tests" gives me results in one business day by conducting, 4th Generation Test. While one other place does a quick screening and then takes upto 7 days to screen antibodies and give actual results and they also do syphilis testing.
Now, wanted to know that the test which I am or have underwent 2 times was at Any Lab Test and they gave me results in 1-2 Business days, are these tests legitimate? Or the 7 business day period of the other testing center is the logical step to do?
I am confused and doubting my previous results. If you can provide some insight on this I will be glad.
Both tests are reliable. (Assuming that both are accredited laboratories ). HIV tests can be done in a day. The only reason why one lab is taking 7 days is because it might be having high volumes or because it is sending the samples elsewhere. As I said you really do not require a test, but if you are going for a test you only require a simple screening antibody test.
