hiv testing accuracy at 9 weeks
I posted before but I have another question regarding testing accuracy...

I took an hiv test at 6 weeks and another at 9 weeks after I had a possible exposure.  I was told the testing used the latest technology.  I think they called it 4th generation or something?  Anyways, the test came out negative.

However I have been reading that conclusive tests are really 12 weeks after exposure.  Should I get retested?

FYI, my exposure entailed genital to genital rubbing and fellatio. No intercourse.  

Thanks.

You didn't have a risk and didn't need testing in the first place.

Thanks for quick response.  I ended up running blood tests for all stds and I did come up positive for hsv2.  That is why I was so concerned about hiv.  Considering I contracted hsv2 should I still be worried about hiv here?

No you don't need to worry about HIV. HIV is not transmitted in that manner.
