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

The results of your test are indeed considered conclusive, so there is no need for a retest! All HIV tests are considered conclusive after 84 days (12 weeks), so you are well past that period of time. Just for future reference, there are four conditions in which the conclusiveness is changed to 6 months. Those are:

1) If you are on antiretroviral treatment for Hepatitis C

2) If you're on treatment for cancer (Chemotherapy)

3) If you're on PEP/PREP for HIV

4) if you have an immunodeficiency disease (which you would know about as they are diagnosed at infancy)

Additionally, check out the BC CDC HIV testing guidelines [HERE](http://www.bccdc.ca/NR/rdonlyres/B35EDEBD-98CA-48BB-AB7C-B18A357AC19D/0/BCHIVTestingGuidelinesMay2015.pdf) which will give you more specifics about testing window periods and conclusive times.

Hope we were able to help you!

Sincerely,

Christina
