Can I test Neg after testung +

Mar 22, 2007

I have a question. I was recently diagnosed + on Dec 28th, 2006. I have pretty much pin pointed to when I contracted HIV. Yes I known I made a dumb mistake and I take full responsibilty for my actions. Here is my question. My first test on 01/04/07 was 772 T-Cells and 9860 Viral. I just had my second test a week ago 03/05/07. with my numbers 860 T-Cels and 6850 Viral. My Doctor says I am in good shape and my own body is doing its best to overcome the virus. I am not on any medication. If I continue to improve can I ever be diagnosed with a HIV Neg Status?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Unfortunately no. Once you contract the virus, you will always be HIV positive. Well, at least until we discover a cure. I suggest you spend some time reviewing the wealth of information on this site. Begin with the topics that are easily accessed on The Body's homepage under "Quick Links." There you will find chapters, such as "Just Diagnosed" and "HIV Monitoring Tests," etc.

Good luck. Stay well.

Dr. Bob

Thank you note
