To whomever it may concern,

In some answers in this site I find that a HIV test can be conclusive after 12 weeks, somewhere I find 3 month or 90 days. I also find that after 3 month/12 weeks the 97% of the people has seroconversation (so 3% can be false negative).

My doctor told me, to be 100% sure I have to have a test after 6 month. But on this site I read that a result can be conclusive after 12 weeks/3 month.

I have a negative result after 12 weeks and I`m a little confused.

1. Exactly how long should I wait to get a conclusive result?
