Please Answer

Apr 3, 2012

I had sex with a female prostitute , where my condom slid off. I contracted genital herpes from the incident. Had a negative HIV antibody test at the 20 week mark. Can I consider this test conclusive

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hi there-

When it comes to HIV testing, three months (12 weeks) is considered conclusive. Sorry to hear about the genital herpes though. Take care,
