If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and want help to judge your risk, would like advice about HIV testing, or have questions about the effectiveness of condoms or risks associated with specific sexual practices, this is the site for you.
I have posted many times regarding my one time high risk encounter for HIV and the fact that I have had so many symptoms over the past two years in spite of negative test results. Please, do not ban me as I believe I have a legitimate question that I have not asked before two this point. I have shown in multiple testing to have a IgM deficiency, below the normal range connsistantly at least three times over the past year. Your IgM is your bodies first response to a virus and is responsble for creating antibodies, could this IgM deficiency call into question the antibody test results?
Teak, would the IgG would be detected even if the IgM was not making antibodies at the right rate? I have had re-occurring yeast infections, oral thrush, chronic nasal congestion, headaches, nausea, fatigue, sore throat, diarrhea. If your IgM which is the initial antibody reaction does not work properly, how would the IgG know to make antibodies?
