|False positive HIV tests
Jul 22, 2012
I was recently was diagnosed with HIV. This is my third pregnancy, the first one was in my tubes, second one I had a miscarriage and now I'm about 3 months. I've had a flu shot and also strongly believe this is twins. Also, my partner that I've been with for 10 months is negative along with past partners! I tested negative 10 months ago. Is this a false positive.

You don't indicate what HIV tests were performed, and whether confirmatory testing was performed. If only a screening test was performed, without a confirmatory test, a diagnosis cannot be completely established.
