|Sex with HIV Positive Women
Mar 22, 1999
Doctor..Thanks for caring and helping so many people. I was in a relationship for 3 months with HIV (unknow to them) and our relationship ended with this HIV positive news. I have have both HIV EIA tests and RNA PCR tests at 6 weeks and 12 weeks past know HIV exposure and both where non reactive and no HIV found.
Can I rule it out..no symptoms other that stress. What should my next step be in trying to detirmine my status?

Given the fact that both antibody and HIV RNA tests are negative at 6 weeks and 3 months, it is extremely unlikely that you have HIV infection. Given the fact that you have had serial RNA tests, the recommended HIV antibody test at 6 months is probably not necessary. Unless it's for your piece of mind. MH
