Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the conclusiveness of the tests you received up to 101 days post exposure.

Most HIV specialists agree that 4th Generation Tests are conclusive at 6 weeks. Yet, official HIV testing guidelines recommend re-testing at 12 weeks with an antibody test (1). In your case, you have received three individual tests which exceed the 12 week recommendation for a completely conclusive result. With this in consideration, you can regard your test results to be completely conclusive.

Recommendation: No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a physician for other health related questions.

All the best,
AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Cody
