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.

The comments you speak about pertain only to the HIV Experts forum. Not on this forum. This forum goes strictly by the US FDA guidelines.

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.
