How conclusive is a negative result in a HIV RNA test 9 days after possible exposure?
I get confusing info about the window period and conclusiveness of this test, but I tested negative at 9 days low risk exposure and want to know the numbers

The soonest an antibody test will detect infection is 3 weeks. I think it's too early for you to get any conclusive / reliable results just yet. Wait another 4-6 weeks then get re tested. If you're still negative then I doubt you have HIV, but then HIV can take up to 6 months to give results on a test.
