HIV+ or Negative?
Mar 16, 2014
In 2011 I was pregnant and went for HIV testing which came out positive, I then proceeded to take med's to ensure my child doesn't get infected. After my daughters birth I decided to take out life insurance and then tested Negative (thorough lab testing) a few months later I tested again at the same clinic I tested when I was preg and got a +/- result in one sitting. They then did another lab test which came back negative. I then decided to do another test and it came back positive (swab test) and am planing on doing another lab test to be sure.
My question is, why am I getting different results every time I test? Coincidentally every time I do a prick or swab test I have the flu or get sick with flu shortly after, is that perhaps the reason or is there a double gene at play? Please help

You don't indicate what specific tests were performed at each interval and what the specific results were. I suggest you consult with an infectious disease specialist to review the results and determine whether any additional testing is warranted.
