Hello and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline. I am happy to answer your questions.

I am very happy to hear that you used a condom- but next time just use one at a time! Using 2 together can actually cause friction between them and lead to more breakage.

In terms of your test results, you may consider them conclusive because you took one after the 12 week window period. All HIV tests after this time, by BCCDC standards, can be considered conclusive. Furthermore the PCR DNA test is also very accurate as early as 2-3 weeks after exposure! Congratulations!

With regards to your symptoms, we do not use symptoms to determine status here at AIDS Vancouver. This is because some people show them, others don't, and they often get confused with other illnesses like the flu. For this reason I might recommend visiting your local healthcare professional so you can get those checked out and start feeling better!

I hope I have answered your questions and provided you with enough information to move forward. If you have more questions, please do not hesitate to contact the helpline again or visit our website at http://www.aidsvancouver.org for more information.

Sincerely,

Caroline
