tested negative today

hey there i jus tested today with an elisa test 6th generation, and i got a negative, ive heard that 8 weeks can be considered conclusive but we north americans tend to lean or the error of caution, just want to know what you think, can i move on, the main thing is im married to a man, and i dont want to risk giving him anything. so im assuming im fine, the rapid test i took was like the 6th generation, i think, they took 2 vials of blood one to do the test and one to send to the lab in my province to confirm, anyways they took it and she showed me how it works, one blue dot for negative 2 for positive. can you give me your feed back, thanks

Re: tested negative today

Well in the UK, 12 weeks is conclusive, albiet i belive that will be reduced to 8 weeks in due course. The elisa test is considered conclusive on 8 weeks by many experts. Did your doctor recommend any other testing?, if not then take it as conclusive.. If you do test at 12 weeks for peace of mind then dont be surprised when the results are negative..
