You are reliably HIV negative.

You do not need to retest.

The person who you quoted was also negative.

The poster you referenced received a false positive. While rare, they do happen. HIV tests are geared to lean towards sensitivity instead of specificity - which is why a positive ELISA test is ALWAYS followed up with e Western Blot test.

His further testing proved that he had NO HIV infection.

But rather than discuss HIS case at length, why not discuss YOURS?

You tested multiple times. You tested reliable and accurately at the appropriate time. There as no mistake, no error, no false positive. Your tests were negative.

You do not have HIV.

But 2 test architect combo ag ab of 40 days, 42 days result reactive then without a Western Blot test, no a Western Blot test because I tested in private hospital, I was scared and came back my home.

Then I was very worry, I didn't to work anything,...I was crazy, :((

At 8 week in another hospital i tested 3 test: Murex Ag/ab Combination, Sedodia 1/2 rapid test, Determine Ab 1/2 rapid test, result: negative

At 11 week, i tested determine 1/2 rapid test , result: negative

At 3 months, i tested determine 1/2 rapid test, result: negative

At 11weeks, 3 months i still test rapid test which less accurately than architect ag/ab combo.

I'm very worry but I don't have any symptoms

I protected for sex by combom but this comdom is hers, i don't sure it is new comdom. Comdom can slipped in 10s to 15s.

anh,

YOU DO NOT HAVE HIV!!!

It doesn't matter that you had a FALSE positive result at one point or that no WB test was run following it.

What DOES matter is that all your more recent test results have been negative. You are conclusively hiv negative.

You had protected intercourse and that means you weren't at risk in the first place. Condoms have been proven to prevent hiv infection.

Stop worrying because the woman provided the condom. She did that to protect herself, so she wasn't going to give you a bad condom.

YOU ARE HIV NEGATIVE. Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection and remain hiv negative:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED FURTHER HIV TESTING AT THIS TIME, anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!
