Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the conclusiveness of your test results. The ELISA method is a third generation HIV test with a window period of 4 weeks to 12 week with an accuracy of 99.8%. At 3 weeks, the results may not be conclusive.

Recommendation: Refer to Physician for HIV test and more personalized answers.

Regards,
AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Ashley
