Tested neg after 11 wks 2 days, conclusive?
      #235180 - 01/12/08 06:43 PM

Hi all,

I had a rapid blood HIV antibodies test conducted today, tested negative (YAY!) and it's been 11 weeks + 2 days since my last exposure (protected vaginal, insertive unprotected oral). Can this be considered conclusive? I know the recommendation is 3 months, so I've jumped the gun by about 12-13 days.

Should I test again in 2 weeks? Today's result was a great burden lifted off, but I'm still wondering about the little bit of "wiggle room" I left open during my window period. I wanted to test after 3 months, but the anxiety was just too much for me to handle.

Thanks everyone.

EXTREMELY unlikely for your result to change, and you never really had a risk to begin with...
