HIV and Other STD Testing Window Period



During my last sexual encounter which was due to fantasies with a pre op trans woman, received protected anal, but I got anxious that the condom could have been broken, I have made the following tests:

1. HIV PCR and VDRL at day 8, All negative
2. HIV 1/2 COMBO/DUO Test at day 28, All negative
3. HIV COMBO/DUO , VDLR, Hep B and Hep C at day 94, All negative
4. HIV COMBO/DUO at day 101, Negative.

So basically all is negative, but I still have anxiety that I could have messed something with the window period.

Are HIV and VDRL conclusive after 3 months period?

I would appreciate your kind support in this matter.




Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about whether the HIV tests and VDLR tests you had done are conclusive after 3 months. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be low risk (Evidence of transmission occurs through these activities when certain conditions are met).

The HIV Combo/DUO test is a 4th Generation test that is considered conclusive at 12 weeks with an accuracy of 99.9%.

As this is an HIV helpline, we cannot provide accurate information on VDRL tests. Please refer to your physician for more personalized answers.
