Hi there and thank you for reaching out to AIDS Vancouver with your questions. We're happy to help!

Here in Canada, all tests are conclusive 3 months (12 weeks) after your most recent exposure. Being that your test was past the 12 week mark, yes, your test was conclusive. Congratulations!

However, there are 4 situation in which your window period may get extended to 6 months. They are:

- If you are receiving antiviral treatment for Hepatitis C
- If you are receiving treatment for Cancer (chemotherapy)
- If you are receiving P.E.P. treatment for HIV
- If you have a pre-existing immunodeficiency disease. These are very serious and are most often diagnosed at birth.

If none of these conditions apply to you, then your test is considered conclusive.

I hope I was able to answer your question, and feel free to contact us with any further concerns.

Regards,

Sierra, Helpline Volunteer
