4 weeks or 6 weeks or 12 weeks?

With the upmost respect guys why do you say 4 weeks is conclusive or Hive and nearly every other expert say 6 weeks?
On the Hiv forums they are on the conservative side and say a test at 6 weeks will rarely ever change but do it at 3 months to be conclusive.
Words like rarely are not particularly comforting to be who have great Anxiety, do you guys not worry saying 28 days is enough but everyone else saying Something different, or are you 100 percent sure?

I hope you can finally move past your event that we have expressed many times was NOT a risk for HIV. Your test is negative because you never had a risk which means it will never change. Duo tests are conclusive at 28 days. It is time to let this go. You do not have HIV

You were already answered about this on your own thread.  But yes, 4th generation tests do not change after 28 days and beyond.
