Answer: 

Hello and thanks for reaching out to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your question. We are glad to be of assistance.

It seems like you are concerned whether the HIV test results you got 13 weeks after the exposure are conclusive.

All HIV tests are considered conclusive 3 months or 12 weeks after the exposure. Since your last test was done 13 weeks after the exposure then the results would be conclusive.

You did not indicate whether you conducted these tests yourself or you went to a testing centre. We encourage people to have their HIV tests done at a clinic or a test centre because care is taken to ensure that the process is not contaminated and also they have resources like counselling. If you did the tests yourself then we encourage you to approach a clinic or a test centre for you to have conclusive results. If the results you got are from a test centre then they are conclusive.

At AIDS Vancouver we encourage HIV testing as a regular health maintenance routine. Our website and our Online Forum will provide additional information that is related to your question.

Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.
