NO ONE HAS ASKED YOU THIS BEFORE
Dec 1, 2003

Doctor, Q1) WILL THE AMOUNT OF ANTIBODIES GO DOWN BELOW UNDECTABLE LEVELS AT STANDARD ELISA TEST AFTER 2 YEARS AFTER POSSIBLE EXPOSURE.(I had unprotected sex with a sex worker two years ago. i tested myself HIV thru an elisa test 2 months ago, the result was negative. i once again got a elisa test done last week, the result was negative).

Q2)Can i consider myself negetive for sure now? Please reply to my question. Thanks a lot for your time doctor.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello ARUN,

Actually, several folks have asked similar questions before. Check the archives!

1.HIV antibody tests remain accurate anytime after the three-month window period. No, the antibodies will not go to undetectable levels after two years (or 20, for that matter!).

2.Yes, you are "negetive for sure."

Congratulations! WOO-HOO!

Dr. Bob
