I I am going for my 100 day HIV test today I am going to a clinic which I have never been to before I heard they have rapid HIV test so I am planning on getting a rapid test I heard they often produce false positives should I be sure that if I get a positive that it is false because of my 3 month negative HIV test?

Unfortunately they said I don't qualify for the rapid test because this is my first unprotected exposure so just took an elisa lab test now I get to wait in stress for 2 weeks I think I  tested again because I tested 2 days before 12 weeks so maybe just anxiety but I'm praying it comes negative so I can move on

Thanks but one more then I read that even a test at 6 months is only 99.99% accurate then what about the renaming the 0.01% does it mean I will always have 0.01% of serconverting after 6 months

You are not taking chemo, you are not taking antirejection drugs for an organ transplant and you are not a chronic IV drug abuser. You are conclusively negative.

Promise this is the last one , someone asked on a other form that his doctor said that HIV can be dormant for 10 years like inactive, is this response correct :

5. Any virus, can become dormant, and the disease process can be inactive. But this does not mean that the virus cannot be detected by serology tests. Even if the virus becomes dormant, it will still be detected by antibody tests.

So even if HIV is dormant it will still create  detecable antibodies?

Reread what you just typed, and you will find that you just answered your oen question. What this means, is that someone who has HIV, an HIV controller for example, eill have undectable viral loads without medication. Some would say the virus is dormant. However this person will still have antibodys and will still test positive. Your test was three months post exposure correct? If so, you are negative. Unless there was additional exposures in between. Do not worry about 0.1 percent. Nothing in life is 100% for sure, except two things. Dying. And having to pay taxes. Ha! Stop worrying, and start woohooing.

We've already told you (MANY times) that your test is conclusive, that you don't have HIV and have NO need to test any further.

There's nothing more we can tell you and we're not going to keep repeating ourselves.

Yes your test is conclusive. You need to move on with life. Do you think thr body has an internal timer that sets itself to three months, and a person is going to test negative 83 days and all the sudden be positve on day 84?? Not going to happen. Period.

You do not need pep. No they are not going to give it to you because YOU NEVER HAD A RISK. You didnt even have sex!!!! You rubbed your penis against someone with a condom ON!! You need to ask your parents to grt you a therapist. Seriously.

You need to learn how HIV is transmitted. UNprotected anal and UNprotected vsginal sex, sharing needles. It is not transmitted by touching, kissing, high fiving somrone, using toliets etc. your sad because of some mental health issue.not a physical one. You need to keep your penis in your pants and talk to your parents about seeing a mental health professional. Thats yoyr problem.

What part of NO risk, are you having trouble understanding? You have already had a conclusive test. Period. You need to visit the anxiety and or ocd forum.

You did not have another exposure. Nothing you did put you at risk for HIV or any other disease.

Going back and forth is not going to help.  You were told you didn't have a risk.  You need to stop experimenting if you're not going to believe you didn't have a risk.  I suggest you educate yourself, and seek some professional help.

No more we can so for you....enough for this thread.
