I was just tested at the 4 week mark.  I know probably a little early, but I've been so worried.  I did the rapid oral test, and it came back negative.
How accurate are these tests at 4 weeks?

You have HIV specialist Doctors on here telling people 4 weeks depending on the risk is ok and you could live with that---and then you guys over here telling people that 4 weeks is ****---well I trust someone who is actually doing the test on me to give me the right info----I am done with this site. AIDSMEDS is fantastic--this place create anxiety! Andy on aids meds saod the VAST MAJORITY OF THOSE WILL SERCONVERT DO SO WITHIN 4-6 weeks then the rest is a very small number----HE DIDNT TELL ME YOU TEST ***** GET ANOTHER ONE____HE SAID CONGRATS!

3 months is when one can get a conclusive negative test. Period. If you don't like the guidelines write to your Congressman about it. You can't change the guidelines nor any doctor.
