Those 4th gen test are typical considered conclusive at 28 days so yeah yours 43 and 47 days are conclusive,wat was your exposure anyway?

Hi, thank you for the help! My exposure was a protected sex in a massage parlor.  But I'm really worried because we both checked the condom if it was broken but we're not sure about it (including me because I was drunk), then we immediately  stop from there.
If you had protected sex, you didn't need to test. Condom breakages are absolutely evident, there's never a situation where you would have to guess. You would have most definitely known. The fact that there is guesswork going on means that you never had a risk.
That is not an exposure. If a condom fails it rips down the seam and hangs in tatters from the ring and is hard to take off, so it is a waste of time doing water tests and close inspections. Nove on from hiv and no need to waste your time with more tests.
