HIV Negative after 6 weeks

I had a hiv antibody test in canada after 6 weeks and they tell me that i have to wait 3 months before a conclusive test.   I want to know if I can rely on this test considering the latest technology 3rd generation antibody tests are used and naturally i do understand that the 3 months may be conservative.

I appreciate any replies as I am completely stressed out!

What was your risk?

3 months is when an antibody test is conclusive.

a guy slipped his penis in me for 1/4 second.  there was lots of lube and from what i thought was the riskiest thing ever, apparently the time factor has a lot to do with it.   It seems as though risk is possible but its a lower risk that a full session.
