You didn't have any risk for HIV.  Any test you take at any time following the event you mentioned previously will be conclusive, and negative, since you had no exposure to HIV.

This is a conclusive result this is a 4th gen test and become 100% conclusive at 6 week.

Only way it won’t be is if you took PEP after encounter.

Sorry happened to re-read this. Noticed I got it wrong.

The 4th gen at 28 days easy 95% accurate.
Same with the 3rd gen at 46 days over 95% accurate.

For conclusive a new 4th gen now will be conclusive.
Dadz1990,thank you for your answer.
I want to known some question.
Is it(negative reslt) can be change after 3 months?
Nope a negative result at 3 months won’t change unless you are exposed again.
4th generation tests do not change in the real world past 28 days and that result at that time is considered conclusive. All other tests is 3 months. BUT, the most important thing here?  Your situation was no risk so you do not need to test.
Thanks for all answer.
Have A Nice Day.
