Repeated exposures
Mar 29, 2006

I found out my husband is HIV positive. We have had unprotected sex through out our marriage. I have tested 2, 4, 12 weeks post last exposure. These tests were all negative. Do I need to continue to test or is the confirming my negative status. My first test was via donating blood - I was not aware that my husband was positive at this time. Is it true that the blood bank uses a very specific test? My last test at 12 weeks was an p24 and elisa both neg. I am still worried. It was a big surprise with his diagnosis - not expected as he is a healthcare worker and probably got it from a patient. How is it that some get the virus and other's don't? Thanks for a reply.

Questions related to HIV transmission, prevention, safer sex, HIV testing and risk should be sent to Dr. Bob at his "Safe Sex and HIV Prevention" expert forum.
