6 week/ massachusetts

We discuss it a lot but here is the actual link from mass government's website. Hopefully it gives many reassurance and hopefully no one's negative at 6 weeks changes. God bless.

And previously the following was already posted by someone else:

Mass will not give anyone a conclusive test result for a real risk at 6 weeks. They will advise you to come an at 3 months for a conclusive test result.

I just call the Mass hotline and they told me that for them 6 weeks is conclusive for most cases, but if someone have real high risk (anal vaginal sex with o known positive partner out of meds) they will encourage the patient to test again at 3 months just to be extra sure, but they dont have any documented cases of someone turning positive after a 6 week negative test.
