Thank you.
I understand that I was in no risk situation.
Thank you.
Though I had a rapid test done on 8week mark which came negative.
Do I still get myself tested on the 12 week mark.
Thank you.
You both are Angels.

Hi there, thank you for contacting us again.

Unfortunately I cannot reread your previous correspondence with our helpline volunteers. If you would like to have a back and forth correspondence, contacting us via email is still anonymous and may be easier.

With respect to your question in your latest post, all HIV tests are considered completely conclusive at 12 weeks post exposure, so you may want to consider getting retested at 12 weeks. This is based on the World Health Organization's position stance. However, rapid tests are considered over 95% accurate at 8 weeks post exposure, so your test result is a very good indication of your HIV status.

I hope that answers your question, if you have any further questions please feel free to contact us again.

In health,

Arne, AIDS Vancouver Helpline Volunteer
