bit scared

Jul 15, 2005

I had a test after 4 months of being with anyone bar my bf. It came back inconclusive. The doctor said to take a retest after 2 weeks which came back negative for viral load, p24 and antibodies. As I had left 4 months they said it was fine

Is there any chance it might have been a seroconversion? should I get retested? Ihave a new bf, and he has been great, we use condoms but for his sake, will I test again now its been a few months since the last test? yours british lass

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hey British Lass,

An "inconclusive" test followed by negative antibody, p24 antigen and viral load tests means you are conclusively and definitively negative. No, you are not seroconverting. No additional HIV testing is warranted, necessary or recommended, unless you've had another potential exposure.

Congratulations on your negative HIV status and your new stud-puppy boyfriend!

Stay safe. Stay well.

Dr. Bob
