Dear Helpline

I Had unprotected sex with a female and she removed the condom. I was drunk and did not stop. How dumb of me.
I eventually got scared and have been worrying ever since. I finally went for an HIV test after a 116 days.
The type of test i took was a fourth generation test. The results can back negative.

During that 116 days period i had another sexual intercourse this time with my wife. My wife is also HIV negative.
Can my results be conclusive since she is HIV negative?.

Please help.

Thanks

Love my life.

Hi there, thanks for contacting the AIDS Vancouver helpline with your HIV related questions. We're happy to help.

In Canada, all HIV tests are considered to be conclusive at 12 weeks (84 days) post exposure, however, it's important to note that most HIV specialists actually now consider the 4th gen test to be conclusive at just 6 weeks (42 days) post exposure.

HIV tests are considered conclusive at that time since the last possible exposure. Therefore your test would be conclusive for your encounter with the unprotected sex with the female that you described. Since you're certain of your wife's status, your results are conclusive.

I hope this helped!

Sincerely,

Christina
