OraQuick conclusive?

Hello! I am seeking advice as to whether I should continue testing based on the following results or if these can be considered conclusive. These tests were all taken after being on the receiving end of unprotected vaginal intercourse with a partner of an unknown status:

2 weeks - negative HIV serology
6 weeks - negative OraQuick in-home oral test
9 weeks - negative OraQuick in-home oral test
12 weeks - negative OraQuick in-home oral test

Today at 13 weeks I have a sore throat. This couldn't possibly be delayed ARS or seroconversion?

The 12 week test was conclusive, no more testing is needed.

No.  ARS would never occur that late.

Time to put this behind you, you didn't get infected...from now on, use a condom.

Nurse girl,

Just one follow up questions before I can put this behind me (finally!)...

You said my 12 week was conclusive - so in your opinion, you consider my OraQuick in-home oral test that I performed on my self accurate and reliable at 12 weeks? I only ask because I've read on other forums that OraQuick, especially when self-performed, is not definitive.

Ready to move on so again, I thank you for your selfless dedication to this forum!

Had you read the instructions that comes with the test kit it explains it and so does the video. You are conclusively NEGATIVE.

As long as you followed the directions and did the test correctly (which is not hard)..then yes, it is definitive and conclusive.
