Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from your question, you are asking whether your negative test results can be considered conclusive.

HIV tests are very accurate. Most third and fourth generation tests are considered conclusive at 6 weeks, however some guidelines recommend re-testing at 12 weeks for more definitive results (1). Given that you received testing more than 12 weeks post-exposure, your results can be considered conclusive, and should be interpreted as negative. 

Recommendation: No additional testing necessary. 

Regards,
