False positve pregnant women
Dec 24, 2007

I am 10weeks pregnant I had the ELISA test done they came back positve, the WB test came back positve with a p24, gp160 and gp40. I had given blood 5 months ago, was negative, I have been with my husband for 10 years, we are both 110% faithful. After we recieved the results, we went to get new test done today to verify and are waiting on the results. We also went that same day to get a oraquick bloodtest done, which we were both negitive. Does haveing herpes and being pregnant give a false positve? We are both extremely low risk. The only exception is might be routine blood work done at the medical facilities in the last 5 months from the red cross testing. I have had accuputure done in the last two weeks before the elsa/wb test. However, accuputre was also done at a reputable medical facility and I am 90% sure the are new clean needles. what are the chances of getting hiv or is it a false positive. thanks for all your help.
