HIV test accuracy at 9 weeks?
Hello,
I had a risky encounter in August of this year and I did my latest HIV test 9 weeks after exposure.
During this time the clinic did a Rapid and a NAAT (RNA) test. The rapid one said "non reactive" and the RNA one said "not detected". Basically I tested negative for both.
How accurate are these results? Can I expect to test negative at 12 weeks?
Thanks.

There are no tests that give a conclusive negative test earlier than 3 months post exposure.

This debate has been going on for a few years now about 28 days vs 90 days or DUO vs Antibody but the fact still remains that the official guidelines do clearly state that a negative HIV result is only considered conclusive at 90 days or 3 months post--exposure.
