Is my test conclusive?

I took rapid HIV test fourth Gen. at 58 days – is this test conclusive? Or I should follow up?

Hi Worried warrior. I am so sorry but I am unable to comment on the accuracy of other tests, for more information I would recommend asking the place where you purchased the test/was tested. A fourth generation test would look for antigens to the virus as well as antibodies. A second generation test (like the BioSURE HIV self test) would only be deemed conclusive 12 weeks post possible exposure. Kindest regards Francesca Bard, BioSure (UK) Ltd
