Hi there and thank you for reaching out to AIDS Vancouver with your questions. We're happy to help!

To start off with, protected sex is considered a low risk activity, meaning that there have been a few reports of infection attributed to this activity, but usually under certain identifiable conditions (i.e. the condom breaking). Using a condom effectively greatly lowers your risk, as it acts as a barrier against the transmission of body fluids. In terms of your testing, here in Canada, all tests are considered conclusive 3 months after your most recent exposure. Therefore, your most recent test on May 12th would be considered conclusive, as it was taken after the 3 month mark. Congratulations!

If you are looking for more information regarding HIV testing, please read through this link from CATIE, a reliable source of HIV related information: [HIV Testing](http://www.catie.ca/en/fact-sheets/testing/hiv-testing-technologies).

I hope I was able to answer your question, and feel free to contact us with any further concerns.

Regards,

Sierra, Helpline Volunteer
