None really. I am trying to help a friend who’s asked me about the 4th generation combo hiv test window period.
He didn't have a risk either?

Yes, it would be conclusive.  HIV testing accuracy and timing has no relationship to the risk.

If your friend has other questions, he can make an account and ask.  We don't usually dive into detail for "by proxy" questions like this - "for a friend."

Thank you so much and apologies for asking by proxy. Now it’s my own interest to know on window periods. What’s the minimum window period for a combo 4th generation HIV Test? Thank you again for your previous answer.
28 days.   From your history here, though, it doesn't sound like you have ever had a risk for HIV.
