Reliability of 4th generation RAPID test

I had protected sex (condoms in tact in all the exposures) with multiple sex partners over the course of 1 year. Out of anxiety, I did 4th Generation alere RAPID test 2 months after the last exposure and the result came negative. Can I take the result as conclusive? Is the rapid test as accurate as lab test?

Thank you

The 4th generation rapid test is accurate at 28 days so yes, definitely at 2 months.  Glad you are negative. Buy some condoms to protect yourself.  People only get HIV from unprotected vaginal or anal penetrating sex or sharing IV drug needles.
