hey sarraayc..

U know what. I seriously doubt it. I'm also paranoid, I search the web often but I never ever seen that 3 months negative turned out to be positive in six months. Basically 3 months is long enough to test for HIV.

I would give all to be in ur position right now. I am waiting for 3 month mark test now, pls dont make everyone nervous.

As far as I know.. ppl might get delayed accurate test result because of severe compromised immune system which is caused by either chemo or IV drugs. Of course when u had other exposure within the window period u might get it as well.

Btw, Teak thanks for responding to my case. Yes I'm seriously trying my best to convince myself. But u know anxiety got the best of me. It's only natural to test as a closure. Just for a peace of mind. :)
