Hello.
I was wondering if the type of risk can have an affect on the conclusive test result.
I see from here, that a 12 week test is completely conclusive, and that experts believe a COMBO / DUO AbAg test is conclusive at 6 weeks.

However does this also apply to someone receiving a needlestick in the public? Or only to sexual exposures?

Thanks

Hello There,

Thank you for posting on the AIDS Vancouver Helpline Forum.

No, HIV test results are conclusive at 12 weeks post exposure regardless of the level of risk of the activity.

HIV test results are conclusive at 12 weeks for either a sexual encounter or a sharing of needles.

Hope this helps!
