Brief Answer:
Findings suggest negative HIV 1 and 2 reports.

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Findings suggest negative HIV 1 and 2 reports.
You have already very low chance of HIV infection as you had protected sex with condom.
Since you are in window period,you may need other tests like P24 antigen test or you may need repeat HIV antibody test after 12 weeks.
Production of antibodies varies with patient.
Fourth generation test is highly sensitive by 12 weeks period.It is almost confirmatory.So,you can go for it.

Hope I have answered your question.
Further queries are most welcome.

Brief Answer:
It is a antibody based test.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Sorry for replying late

It is a antibody based test.Production of antibodies varies with patient and 12 weeks(average) is expected for production of antibodies in majority of the cases.So,you may need repeat test after 12 weeks of exposure for confirmation.
