Answer: 

Hi there and thank you for reaching out to AIDS Vancouver with your questions, we're happy to help!

Here at AIDS Vancouver, we are not doctors. We are volunteers trained in HIV transmission and testing information, but we are not trained in information regarding STIs. In regards to the HSV testing, I cannot answer your questions as to the accuracy of your testing and what type of test would be best for you, as we are not trained in HSV testing. If you are looking for information, I would contact your local health clinic and speak with a medical professional, as they are much more informed on the matter.

In regards to your HIV test, since you took the test 3 months after your exposure, your test result would be considered conclusive. Congratulations!

I'm sorry that I couldn't be of more help. If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to contact us again.
