I am freaking out my doctor told me that my test for hiv came out as non-reactive,but the problem is that i live in Quebec and i don't know if non-reactive means negative.a nurse told me that non-reactive depending on terminology means you have to do it again!!!am i negative,i dont know anymore. (my last risk was taken 2 years ago)sorry for my english ;)i see that you speak french can you answer in french please

Response from Dr. Frascino


Il n'y a pas de raison pour laquelle tu as besoin de t'excuser de ton anglais. Je t'ai compris sans problème. Toutefois, n'oublie pas que tu peux m'écrire toujours en français.

Bon, ta question et ta réponse . . . en français bien sûr. Quant à un test de dépistage du sida, non réactif veut dire négatif. Peut-être cette infirmière pensait à non réactif dans un autre contexte. Bien sûr, sur le plan de l'amour, non réactif peux vouloir dire qu'on doit le faire encore une fois, mais comme le résultat d'un test VIH, jamais. Non réactif est négatif, un point c'est tout.

Bonne chance. Bonne santé.
