Answer: 

Hello,

Having a negative test result at 6 and 9 weeks is a very good indication of your HIV status, however, these results are not considered conclusive. These results are a great indication of your status, and the results of your test at 12 weeks are very unlikely to change. This is because up to 95% of infections are detectable within 4-6 weeks post-exposure. Nothing is 100% however, so the possibility is there that the results could change, but as stated, that would be very unlikely.

In health, Erin
