hello to all need help i got my self tested for hiv 45 days after exposure via CMIA test and the result was non reactive now i am considering a 3 month test that is on 17 of march but the problem is it may sound bizarre i got a rabies vaccine on 4 th of march now i am concerned can a rabies vaccine show a false positive? if yes then what should i do?WOULD BE GREAT HELP
Do the 3 month test to get a conclusive result as that is the only way to confirm if you got infected or not. Teak helped me through my anxiety and i am sure he will tell you to wait the 3 months. March 17th is very near so please hang in there buddy as i know how nerve wrecking it can be.
thanks a lot ....i agree and i am ready for the testt getting to know your status is probably the best i can do after begin so dumb But my real question is wether i can get a HIV false positive if i am taking anti rabies vaccine as i ave to take 5 shots and the dates are as 3 march 8th march and so on ????Coz the doc here says a 6 week result is final and i tested twice that is 5th day and 45 day
the TEST was 4th gen duo test cmia method using abott architect .I understand that CDC guidelines are a 3 month conclusive but here in India the doctors are off the view that a 6 week negative doesn't require any more testing.The 3 month test is my personal choice
