Hi there and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline forum.

It sounds like you're concerned about the accuracy of your HIV test results.

I have good news for you, receiving oral sex has only a negligible risk of HIV. This means that there have not been any reported cases of someone acquiring HIV from this activity in BC. An HIV test is not usually required for this activity alone.

HIV tests have the most conclusive results when taken 12 weeks (90 days) after exposure. The negative test you had at 7 weeks is a good indication, and, your status is not likely to change without another exposure.

For more information about HIV you can always visit the AIDS Vancouver website.

I hope this information helps to answer your question. Good for you for being responsible with your health and getting tested, way to go!
