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.
As per experts advice, i am confident that I am not a victim of HIV and a good lesson learnt for the whole of my life.
But recently , I am offered a job in UAE and as a part of pre-employment check up, I need to undergo HIV test. So before putting my resignation at my current orgnaisation, I wanted to be sure that I don't have HIV. So could you please suggest me which is the best test to undergo, which will not return any FALSE POSITIVE test? Your help is highly appreciated.
I went to clink for HIV test as suggested by Joggen earlier as a part of my pre-employment check. But the doctor in the clinick had decided to a test named " HIV 1& 2 ANTIBODIES, COMBO TEST INCLUDES P24 ANTIGEN".
Looking at my situation ( as experts had told me I didn't have any exposure), whether this test would be good enough to MOVE ON! I will get the results by this evening.
I know.. i don't have HIV and thanks for your all help/advice/support..but this is for premeplyment check up..Members of the group advised for Elisa..but in the clinick they didn't have ELISA..and hence gone with COMBO.. As far as reliability concerned..both COMBO and ELISA are equally reliable..right?
