Hello, I had protected sex on March 6th 2019 with an new partner ( HIV status unknown ). Protected oral and protected penetration and kissing was involved. I got tested on June 7th 2019. HIV 1 & 2 (CMIA) the results were: Non-Reactive. 

Since Aids Vancouver recommends a person wait 12 weeks for the tests to be accurate results, I'd like to know if I have waited enough ? and If these results are conclusive. I haven't had any sexual relations since the mentioneddate -- should I get tested again ? 

Thank you.

Hello,


Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of acquiring HIV after engaging in protected oral and insertive sex as well as the accuracy of the HIV test you accessed after the activity. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be Low Risk (evidence of transmission occurs through these activities when certain conditions are met).

The scenario mentioned above could meet the three components of the transmission equation due to improper use or potential breakage of the condom during the insertive sexual activity.
Helpline Transmission Equation .jpgIt was very responsible of you to use a condom during sexual activity and to access HIV testing afterwards. The HIV test you accessed is considered completely conclusive 12 weeks post-exposure. Since you accessed HIV testing more than 12 weeks post-exposure, you can be very confident about the accuracy of your negative result.

Recommendation: Since you have already accessed HIV testing outside of the window period, no further testing is required. Refer to a healthcare professional for other health related questions.

Regards,
AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Marie
