Q.

How reliable is the Instant (Rapid) HIV test, especially in detecting sero conversion status within a 4 week period of exposure?

I was recently exposed to a person with HIV + status in the past 5 weeks. i did a Rapid/Instant test with a professional health practitioner and the test was negative. How reliable would the Rapid test be in detecting sero conversion within this period. I'm not certain what Generation the test is. Your advise please.

I would say 0, rapid tests dont detect acute infections well, even ag/ab, i would suggest you get a proper lab test
