I took an HIV rapid test here in Canada. Fingerstick blood sample. The test is approved by Health Canada for detection of HIV-1/HIV-2.
I took the test at 85 days. Last exposure was December 20, 2010, and I took the test March 16, 2011.
Is this enough time?
Am I conclusively negative?
Do I need to take another test in the future? (i.e. six months?)
The only time I would need to test again is after an unsafe sexual exposure (unprotected vaginal/anal sex), correct? Otherwise, I'm free and clear and can move on with absolutely ZERO worries and a 100% confidence that I am negative?
If someone was to ask me my HIV status, I could tell them with confidence that I am negative, correct?
Thanks. I appreciate the assurances.
