My exposure was protected vaginal sex ( possible expired condom & slipped off), with receiving unprotected oral sex, I tested Negative with Hiv Duo test ( 10th,13th, 25th, 28th, 42nd day) however from where i stay guidelines advise me to take a test post period of 6 months, so i took a test after 8th Month mark, the test name was - HIV 1 & 2 WITH p24 Antigen - Method - CMIA , the test results came back negative. i'm worried if this test check for both antibody and antigen since the report read - ( HIV 1 & 2 with P24 Antigen - CMIA Method), Kindly help

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

The results of HIV tests are considered to be conclusive when taken 12 weeks (3 months) following exposure. This means that the test you took at 8 months would have conclusive results. There is no need for further testing unless there is another exposure or it is recommended by a healthcare practitioner.

I hope this information helps to answer your questions.

For more information you can always visit the AIDS Vancouver website or check out CATIE.org.
