Answer: 

Hello and thank you for reaching out to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline!

It sounds like you have some concerns in regard to your HIV test results.

First off, it is great that you went out and pursued HIV testing! Here at AIDS Vancouver, we recommend routine testing as it is a great way to stay up-to-date on your current HIV status. From what you have told me, you pursued HIV testing at 3, 8, 12, 7 weeks and 7 months post-exposure, which generated a negative result. It has been deemed by medical professionals that all test results done at 90 days post-exposure and onwards generate completely conclusive results. Thus, your most recent test result, which was done at 7 months is completely conclusive.

If you have any further questions feel free to post on the Helpline forums anytime!

Regards,

Chris, Helpline Volunteer
