Good work team,
Recently a medical practitioner told me that the delayed reactivity of a standard antibody test possibly up to 3 or 4 months window period may be determined by strongness of one's blood group. She said that those with blood group O may delay to react in case HIV postive, I am blood group O' Rs+ and have tested -ve in last 8-9 weeks. Is it possible if the result remains the same at 12 weeks, i might have to wait for atleast a month due to my blood group, from Uganda

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) after exposure. The results of a test you take at 12 weeks after exposure can be considered to be conclusive regardless of your blood type.

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.
