I had a possible exposure (Unprotected-Vaginal) Intercourse with a person (HIV Status-Unknown)
I got tested at 108th day from the date of intercourse.
Test: HIV 1 & 2 (Serum)
Query: Can this test be termed conclusive?
I have not seek any advise from a medical professional and got a random test. Can I be assured of me being HIV Negative?
Any chances of it being False Negative?
Is there a need to retest as I've only tested once?
Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for you HIV/AIDS related health information.
It sounds like you are concerned about the reliability of your test results.
All HIV tests are considered conclusive 3 months post exposure. You took your test 108 days after your exposure, which is more that 3 months. Your test came back non-reactive, which is negative. You can trust this result.
Your negative test result is considered conclusive
It is highly unlikely that this is a false negative. No further testing is needed for this exposure.
I would encourage you to check out the following resources about HIV:
