Well you can test now with a 4th generation test like a combi or duo and the results will give a very good indication of your status. False negatives, dont worry they dont happemn. False positives ive seen a few times here, but ive not seen a false negative.

No Idea what test he was talking about, you should have asked him, but a test at 50 days will be as good as 4th generation at 30 days. The 4th gneration tests just tend to detect HIV 1 week earlyer, so just go back at 6 weeks and take any test if you cannot wait 3 months
