i had a hiv test 93 days after a mutual masturbation incident with a girl where i think i got some of her vaginal fluid into my urethra! The test was negative! However i have a skin condition called psoriasis however i was recieving UVB light treatment at the time to clear this skin condition and im not sure if this light treatment would surpress my immune system and therefore it would allow me longer to produce antibodies to the hiv virus if i was infected! Therefore is my hiv test after 93 days accurate? Also will i need to repeat the test because i had this light treatment get back to me please. I was tested in an England Clinic and i think they use generation 3 hiv tests for antibodies

Response from Dr. Frascino


This forum is dedicated to fatigue and anemia problems. Questions pertaining to HIV transmission, prevention and testing or safer sex should be sent to the expert forum dealing with those issues. Consequently, I'll only respond very briefly to your question and refer you to the other forums for additional information, OK?

UVB light treatments will not affect HIV test results.
