Was a western Blot done at some stage?
not exatcly same , but i had exposure ,end of march 2007.
up to now 8 negative results.
yes I found out that some facotrs can affect on HIV test ,like driniking too much alcohol or some other antibodies for other disease could conflict and give fake or indefinite result as far as i know ofcurse.
why did nt u do confirmatory test by the time?
i was given the opt before to do western blot, but at that time i was so stressed,,,i just let it pass...I don't know i felt relieved,,,but i am currently under treatment for gonorrhea...but for sure i will do the western blot next month or january a 2008 year beginner for me...so weird right????i wish to tell this to everyone about some false positive,so they will not be too much stressed about it like i was befor...i learned my lesson..maybe this is a second chance given to me...is there someone here,who's hiv positive???
indefinite results????like you will have these kind of antibodies for the rest of your life???even it cross reacts with hiv test...so meaning hiv testing is somehow,,,i don't know what to say...inaccurate???
All positive tests have to be confirmed. If you have not had a conformation test then more than likely you don't have HIV. Once someone is positive they always have antibodies.
thanks teak....as what i heard you have HIV for 20 years, does it bother you that maybe you have antibodies other than HIV not the HIV itself???teak, this is a personal question, but how did you acquired it???through intercourse or through other routes???if you had contact with someone, you can catch HIV for only one sex encounter with that infected partner???
