Hello and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline. We are happy to help answer your questions.

It sounds like you have received a Rapid Test for HIV, however we are not clear as to how long after your exposure this test was carried out. We want to let you know that auto-immune diseases like eczema and psoriasis do not affect the window period of your HIV test, and, if you carried out your Rapid test between 4 weeks and 12 weeks post-exposure, then the results provided is a good indication of your HIV status.

Here in BC, the results of all HIV tests are considered conclusive at 12 weeks post-exposure or later. We suggest following the guidelines from your local healthcare professional (if they differ) to achieve conclusive HIV test results.

Lastly, it is very unlikely for an individual to acquire HIV from receiving oral sex. For this activity, further testing may not be required. Here in BC, there has never been a confirmed report of HIV being acquired through this activity, here's why:

* the urethra (in the penis) does not provide direct access to the bloodstream when it is not contained inside the body (e.g. inside vagina, or urethra)

* saliva is not a bodily fluid that transmits HIV, and contains an enzyme that helps stop HIV transmission from happening

For future reference, you may click [here](http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/risk-assessment-chart) to learn about the risk of acquiring HIV associated with other activities.


We trust we have answered your question and hope we have given you a clearer idea about the results of your HIV test and risk associated with your activity. Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.



Sincerely,

Marta
