Question: 

my test : p24 combo at 14 day p24 combo at 34 day h1&h2 ab at 44 day p24 combo at 48 day all was negtive is that accuracy?? do i need any more test?

Answer: 

Greetings, Thank-you for contacting AIDS Vancouver with your question. I would recommend you wait until 12 weeks have passed since the time you had unprotected sex. It is an internation standard that an antibody test taken at or after the 12 week period is completely conclusive. Your previous test results are a good indication of your status and I would not expect them to change. Your last P24 antigen test on day 48 would be considered by many HIV specialists to be conclusive already. Again international standards would recommend re-testing at 12 weeks.
