4th gen test conclusive?


I had unprotected exposure in February 2019, where I briefly topped a guy for a few seconds and stopped and pulled out immediately. I also had unprotected oral with him, and a few other men between February and April. In July of 2019 I had both a rapid hiv test and a 4th generation lab test done on the same day. Both came back negative.

Since I had a real exposure, was this conclusive? Should I need to retest? I also gave unprotected oral again to a guy in early July about 10 days before the test, now 6 months later I got a fever and sore throat so I thought maybe late seroconversion? I’m very worried.

ANY test you took 90 days after your last unprotected anal intercourse is conclusive.  The other events were not a risk for HIV and would not have any affect on your test.  You can forget about HIV from the February event (which was your only risk).  

Forget about "delayed seroconversion" - a popular, but unsubstantiated occurrence.
