Hello and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

The NAAT test (PCR RNA) is considered conclusive after 12 weeks.

This test has verified that you are HIV-, an ELISA test although not necessary is totally up to you if it would give you piece of mind. The length of time does not make a difference on your HIV (PCR RNA) test, so the results remain the same today as when you originally took your test. The only exception would be if you have had any risky activity since your last testing.

In good health,

Harman, AIDS Vancouver Helpline Volunteer
