if I have been tested HIV negative twice in the past 8 months, does that mean I have not contracted the disease? if I do not engage in further sexual activities, do I need to retest every so often to make sure?

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

HIV tests are considered to be conclusive when taken 12 weeks (3 months) or more after exposure. If you have taken a test after this time your results can be considered to be conclusive.

It is recommended to get regular HIV testing if you are sexually active for your health and to know your status.

For more information about HIV you can visit CATIE.ca or the AIDS Vancouver website.

I hope this information helps to answer your questions.
