Nothing. You don't have HIV.

thanx for ur assurance but may i know why these variations in index values despite being tested at same lab

Your results will never be the same. You can take the test in the same lab five times in one day and they will be different. It's because the tests pick up other contaminates  in your blood and scores it. All you have to ever concern yourself about is that you are below 1.0.....

i guess that 12 months should be conclusive then and i need to move on.
