ARE ANTIBODY TESTS AFTER 4 OR 2 YEARS CONCLUSIVE IF NEGATIVE?

I'M SO SCARED CAUSE I had HPV in the past and two years later i had molluscum contagiosum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I TOOK TWO TESTS (1 RAPID AND 1 ELFA 3RD GENERATION IN TWO DIFFERENT CLINICS) AND THEY CAME OUT NEGATIVE?
SHOULD I BE RETESTED AGAIN WITH A DIFFERENT METHOD OR SHOULD I RELAX ?
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.

Hi there!
Thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online with your HIV related questions and concerns. We are happy to help!

In terms of HIV testing, all tests are considered conclusive after 3 months post exposure. Since your test was well beyond that (2 years) then your test results are conclusive and accurate.

Check out BC CDC HIV Testing Guidelines [HERE ](http://www.bccdc.ca/NR/rdonlyres/B35EDEBD-98CA-48BB-AB7C-B18A357AC19D/0/BCHIVTestingGuidelinesMay2015.pdf)as they lay out the exact guidelines for each type of test!

Hopefully this helped!

Sincerely,

Christina
