Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Zahid,

If indeed you have absolutely no HIV risk factors blood transfusions, unprotected sex, sharing IV drug needles then your recent HIV screening test may well be a false-positive. What should you do? Have your test repeated. If positive, you'll need a secondary test (Western Blot or immunofluorescence assay) in order to confirm the preliminary finding.

I'll send you my very best good-luck karma that your follow-up tests confirm what I suspect: that your recent test was a false-positive!
