Answer: 

Hi there, thanks for contacting AIDS Vancouver with your questions! We're happy to help!

Yes! Congratulations on your negative test results. There is no need for HIV testing past 3 months, as 3 month tests are conclusive, so your tests were well past that time period and are in fact conclusive! I advise you to accept your test results and move on, because they were negative, congrats!

Sincerely,

Christina
