Rapid oral quick test results

Would a rapid oralquick be 95% detecable at 4-6 weeks, i had one test done at the 7 week mark and it was negative.

anonymous testing in alberta

Where can find a anonymous testing sight in alberta? do they do Rapid in Alberta or do you always have to wait at least a week? i had a 7 week 49 day negative how accurate would this be in a healthy active person? thanks

after one year

i took rapid hiv test at end of 5 month , end of 7 months ,end of 10 months , end of 12 months and meia hiv test..all were non reactive.my question is -- is any chance now become hiv positive in future..now i am not engaged with sexual any activity..

Accuracy of rapid test at 7 weeks

I was tested negative 8 weeks after a risky encounter (unprotected insertive anal sex) with someone who's status is unknown. This was done in Vancouver with BioLyticalInsti HIV test.
I am wondering what is the accuracy of this test at 7 weeks (really closer to 8 weeks). I'm a guy in mid 20's with no medical conditions.
Thanks for your help.

False Negative after three months

Hi guys, 
Thanks for all your support. 3 months after a high risk exposure I got two negative rapid tests which came back negative. The nurse told me that the sensitivity of the test was 99.96%. Now, I am wondering what if I was part of that .04% who was positive but tested negative. How can I make sure and get peace of mind ?
