Hey,

I had unprotected sex with a friend Late June/Early July and this past March was tested positive for a chlamydia infection as well as for HIV, HPV, Hepatitis C, Syphillis and Gonnorea.

The rapid test was negative as well as the lab results but I can't find the name of the test they used, with this information is possible that my status is conclusive?

Hello and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline. I am happy to answer your question!

With the information you have provided, it seems like you are concerned about the conclusiveness of your test and therefore your current HIV status.

You may be happy to learn that HIV tests, by Vancouver medical standards, are considered conclusive 3 months post-exposure for tests done in a medical facility. If you have had 2 different medical tests conducted 7 months post-exposure, you may consider your results conclusive as long as you haven't had a more recent exposure.

Please keep in mind that here at AIDS Vancouver, we recommend continuous STI and HIV testing for all those that are sexually active- so I'm very glad you got tested! Keep it up.

I hope I have answered your question and provided you with the appropriate information to move forward. If you have further questions please feel free to contact us again on this forum, phone us, of visit our website http://www.aidsvancouver.org.

Best,

Caroline
