Hi James, and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline. I understand you are concerned about your test results, and I will be glad to help.

Your 4th generation test at 50 days post-exposure is a very strong indication that your HIV status is negative. In fact, many HIV experts believe that a 4th generation test is "conclusive" as early as 6 weeks post-exposure, and you will not need further testing. Based on these standards, your HIV status is considered negative. However, here in AIDS Vancouver we follow the more conservative standards of the World Health Organization, which considers an HIV test conclusive after 12 weeks post-exposure. If you like, you can have another test done after 12 weeks for you peace of mind, which should very likely come back negative as well.

I hope I was able to answer your question. Please feel free to contact us again for more information.

Sincerely,

Ali
