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

I hope that my answers will help to ease your mind, and I will answer your questions one by one below!

1) HIV tests are considered to be conclusive at 12 weeks. That being said, results are around 95% accurate at just 4-6 weeks, so your results are very very unlikely to change between 10-12 weeks. Further, considering you've had multiple negative tests, that's a great sign and your results are very unlikely to change!

2) Unfortunately we are not doctors here and we are just volunteers with comprehensive information about HIV, so I cannot tell you what these levels indicate. I would recommend you consult a health care professional about this topic!

3) unprotected sex is considered a high risk activity, and we do recommend testing for that activity!

4) No. Typically, if acute HIV symptoms do present (which they don't always), they appear between 2-6 weeks post exposure and they are described as flu-like symptoms. It's important to note that these symptoms don't LAST for several weeks on end, but rather appear and disappear quite quickly. If you're having symptoms that extend over several weeks or months, these are not related to HIV, and I recommend consulting a health care professional about them.

I hope this helped! Please visit avert.org for more reliable HIV information.

Sincerely,

Christina
