Brief Answer:
It depends on what time you had done the test.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXX,

Welcome to HCM.

The HIV testing kit is for the detection of antibody against HIV virus so it's reliability depends on time after exposure the test is done. It is highly reliable after one month and 100% conclusive after three months so give more details to clarify further.
