Please help, not getting satisfactory answer re: test results
Oct 2, 2005
In June 05, my HIV test results were indeterminate, I tested again in July 05 and in August 05 and received the same results (with Western Blot showing same one strand). My Dr. determined I was positive based on a viral load of 33,000. The last time I had unprotected sex was no later than July 04 and I engage in no other risky practices. Is it possible that this is actually a false-positive or am I still seroconverting?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Sounds like you need another screening HIV antibody test and confirmatory western blot.
