Hi there

46 days after a possible exposure, I went to be checked on a blood finger rapid test.
It was negative.
What are the chances it is accurate?
I have another 2 weeks for my 3 months test...
I am worried...
What are the chances the results will change?

Hello and thank you for using AIDS Vancouver for your source of information about HIV/AIDS issues.

It is great that you are being proactive about your sexual health. I can tell you that most people develop detectable antibodies between 21 and 25 days post-exposure, and many HIV specialists agree that a negative HIV test result 46 days post-exposure is a strong indication of your status. Here at AIDS Vancouver, we follow the guidelines of the World Health Organisation (WHO) and they outline that all HIV tests results are conclusive at 12 weeks post- exposure.

I trust I have answered your questions. Feel free to write back to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline, or visit our website, http://www.aidsvancouver.org for more information.

Sincerely,

Marta

AIDS Vancouver Volunteer
