    that test the ora-quick-advance HIV1/2 test is accurate at the 90 point post exposure, I myself took the same test, except they used the blood sample option which is one of three options for that test. Did you get this test done at a clinic or a hospital?

    the Window period is anywhere from 90-days too 6 months so from my own experince by what i have been told by my physicians that is conclusive, and accurate.

    Well its been several months past the window period I would take that as a conclusive negative result. What made you get the test done?.. I had actually several done due to a very cruel lie a past g/f told me. and a test at 90 days is considered conclusive, but OCD ,people like my self have been known to test at 6 months just for sanities sake :)

    JJYou...a test done at least 90 days past a potential exposure is considered to be both definitive and conclusive in terms of your status.

    You are HIV negative.
