I just want to ask if a HIV screening after a 3-week exposure is accurate enough? I had an unprotected oral sex with a male last May 21st and I have been ill since the 28th. I cannot wait for the six week test, but I will try to have myself tested in three, six and 12 weeks post exposure.

Hello and thank you for choosing the Helpline. An HIV negative test at three weeks is not conclusive however most people who have been exposed to HIV will develop detectable HIV antibodies at 21-25 days.
Giving oral sex to a woman or a man is considered low in the risk for HIV. Receiving oral sex is negligible or even lower in the risk for HIV.
While you test is not conclusive, you are in a good position to know that you most likely have not been exposed to HIV. While waiting for test window may be difficult, the next test at 6 weeks will more than likely be negative as well.
We at the Helpline encourage all sexually active persons to regularly test for all Sexually Transmitted Infections, including HIV.
Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time for continued support while you continue your testing.
Yours respectfully,
David
