I have tested negative for hepatitis acute screen .
Is there a chance that I might have HIV ? Do I still need to take HIV test ?
Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres
Yes .The tests for viral hepatitis are not the same .You can have the HIV virus positive and be negative for hepatitis. Go and do the test for HIV.!!!
