If you're tested negative, does it mean you don't have hiv?
Jun 9, 2012

Hello. I have a test after one year of having unprotected sex. I went for the rapid test in a GUM clinic and it came out negative. However, during that time, I was taking antibiotic. Does this affect the result? Is rapid test reliable? If you're tested negative, does it mean you don't have hiv virus?

Response from Dr. Young

Hi,

Antibiotics do not affect HIV test results. A negative test after 1 year is definite. You're negative.
