|Please slap me !
Apr 18, 2006
hi , doc. i tested non reactive for HIV ( Elisa ) at 3 months, 6 months, 7 months , and one and a half year . Recently i starting to worry about the testing results. i understand that even CDC said that the maximum of window period is 6 months. however from what i search from the internet, there are a few cases that some people will have 1 year or 2 years window period. is that posible that these people may have contact with the virus during the window period ? nobody knows right ? Now i am very confuse, honestly i know that my negetive results are VERY VERY convincing , but i am still worry. i am not 100% comfirm, and so did the expert are not 100 % comfirm about the window period. they only will say MORE THAN 99% , but not 100% . so can you give me a slap and tell me that i am 100% safe? what do you suggest me to do ?

I suggest you rent the movie "Moonstruck" and then you play the Nicholas Cage part and I'll be Cher. I then walk up to you and give you a major bitchslap while yelling "snap out of it!"
Dude, HIV is not your problem. How you choose to live with that quite wonderful news is totally up to you.
