P24 antigen and antibodies

Hey everyone.
Would be so grateful if someone could clear this up. Some places state 4 weeks duo test is conclusive, but I was wondering if anyone knows about the p24 antigen. I understand that it disappears after a while so it's undetectable, I was wondering if anyone knew the approximate time span of this?

Other than that, I know 3 months is considered conclusive universally, but I was wondering, say someone serovonverted at, I dunno a month and half after exposure, would the rapid tests test positive at this time? So someone could test before 3 month with the 3rd gen rapid tests and get a positive result?

Thanks!
