testing info
Mar 28, 2001

I AM A LAB TECH WHO HAS ACCESS TO HIV TESTING. WHILE PREGNANT I DECIDED TO DO MY OWN TEST. I USED MY PLASMA AND MY SERUM...JUST TO BE SURE. MY PLASMA ELISA TEST WAS NEGATIVE (REPEATED IN QUADRUPLICATE) MY SERUM TEST HAD THE SLIGHTEST BIT OF COLOR IN IT(DONE ONLY ONCE). I AM CONCERNED. JUST THAT SLIGHT COLOR WAS ENOUGH TO MAKE ME PANIC...ANY ADVICE...I DONT THINK I COULD LIVE THROUGH ANY MORE TESTS. THIS ONE HAS MADE MY LIFE HELL.

Response from Dr. Sullivan

You are most assuredly HIV antibody negative; you should not be testing your own blood; if you have continued concerns, you should discuss your situation with your physician;JLS.
