Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for your HIV/AIDS related health information. It seems you're concerned about the accuracy of an HIV test you had. We're happy to answer your question for you.

Unprotected sex is considered a high risk activity, meaning that of the transmissions that have occurred, most have occurred during activities such as these.

If your blood was indeed screened for HIV, it would be conclusive of your status with regards to this activity. Most tests are considered conclusive at least 12 weeks post exposure, so if you have not had any recent potential exposures, this test would conclusively demonstrate your current status.

Thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your question, we hope it has been answered fully.
