Hello and thanks for reaching out to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

It sounds like you have some concerns about your HIV testing.

1. First off, it is great that you pursued HIV testing as it is a great way to keep up to date on your current HIV status. Here at AIDS Vancouver we recommend routine testing so that one is able to keep up to date with their status. While your tests are not conclusive at this given time, they are a great indicator of your current HIV status. Furthermore, at 12 weeks and on-wards all tests are considered conclusive so you can even pursue a rapid test if you want an immediate result.

2. There are only 4 situations where your test window period may be affected. They are:

a) Receiving treatment for Hepatitis Cb) Receiving treatment for Cancer

c) Currently on P.E.P (post-exposure prophylaxis)

d) Having some form of immunodeficiency

If you currently do not have any of the above then you are not at risk of your test turning positive after 12 weeks.

For more information on HIV testing you can visit [AVERT HIV Testing](http://www.avert.org/hiv-testing).
