    Raheem,

    You have certainly tested negative conclusively.

    Also, if your girl friend had a separate exposure and she tested negative with a finger prick at 6 weeks, she would likely need another final one at 8 weeks with the same test for a conclusive. However, if you decide to take a standard antibody test (lab test) at this point, it should give you a conclusive now. Please bear in mind that the above recommendation is only if she had a separate exposure.

    However, if you are only talking about an exposure where you are contemplating whether you have given her something, she doesn't need to test as you are negative and you can't give someone the virus when you don't have one.

    Good luck

    Mike
