All HIV test can give you an ACCURATE result at 6 weeks. Except some HIV test can do it more CONSISTANTLY than other.

HIV test that are more likely to have an ACCURATE result at 6 weeks.

* 3rd Gen ELISA test
* OraQuick Rapid test

Test that can possibly give you an accurate result at 6 weeks but most likely to be completely ACCURATE at 13 weeks.

* 1st Gen ELISA test
* Orasure Oral Swab test
* Orasure Oral swab Rapid test.
