I tested "non-reactive" at 15weeks. I understand this is the same as negative. However, I was wondering what is the result of a positive test. I ask because if a positive result come back as "reactive", this could be confusing and lead to some typo mistakes.
Someone with a reactive test could get a non-reactive and vice versa. Anybody has a clue?
That is exactly how it is written: "Non-reactive" is the same as Negative, and "Reactive" is the same as Positive. There would not be a typo, furthermore a "Reactive" or Positive result is always confirmed with a Western Blot. Congrats on your negative result!
