Hello and Thank You for using the AIDS Vancouver Helpline as your source of HIV/AIDS related information.

You are conclusively HIV negative based on your 5 month Rapid test! Any HIV antibody test taken at or after the 3 month mark is conclusive for no current HIV infection. Also, most HIV specialists consider the DUO test conclusive at 6 weeks. When we talk about PEP (Post Exposure Prophylaxis), we are referring to medicine that is used to prevent an HIV infection, when taken 72 hours after a high risk exposure. In some cases. this can extend the window period to 6 months. The rabies vaccine will not interfere with the accuracy of your results or cause late seroconversion. I hope this information will help you to move on with your life and put this situation behind you.

Please feel free to write back at any time if you have any more concerns.
