Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello High Fear and Stress Iranian Guy,

You'll need to ask the laboratory that ran your test.

Your negative HIV-antibody test result at seven months is definitive and conclusive.


The window period is generally defined as the first three months after HIV primary infection. The CDC recommends HIV-antibody testing at both the three- and six-month marks in certain well-defined situations, such as occupational exposures.

Is your problem HIV infection or is it all in your head? I say "all in your head." Definitely all in your head.

It's time for you to stop worrying and start WOO-HOOing.
