Hi there and thanks for reaching out to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline. My name is Colin and I'm happy to help you today.

I understand you are wondering whether the results of your HIV tests are considered conclusive.

The test you describe is considered a 4th Generation Test meaning it combines a test for antibodies (HIV 1 and 2) and antigens (P24). It is the most modern and most sensitive commonly-administered HIV test. While we still adhere to the BC CDC's guidelines stating that all tests are considered conclusive at 12 weeks, most HIV specialists and the World Health Organization consider the 4th Generation Tests to be conclusive at 6 weeks (42 days) meaning that both of the HIV tests you had are considered conclusive and without new exposures will not change.

I hope I managed to answer your questions today. If you'd like any more information or clarification, please don't hesitate to contact us again.

All the best,

Colin
