Hello. I have taken a HIV 4th Generation test at 2 Months and a Week and it came back negative. I'm at the 3rd month now. Am I negative or should I move on now?

Hello and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline. I am happy to assist you.

Most HIV specialists consider the 4th generation test conclusive at 6 weeks post-exposure, but official HIV guidelines here in BC state that HIV tests are considered conclusive at 3 months. Since you took your test past 2 months, this is a strong indication of your status, and by some specialists' standards is considered conclusive. Another test may not be required unless you wish to follow the official BC guidelines. It is your decision whether you wish to retest, given the information above.

I hope I have answered your question and I wish you luck with your decision.

In health,

Caroline
