Antibody test with NAAT tests, combo
Oct 15, 2009
I Posted a question and I dont know what happend to it, here I go again. Approxemettally 5 months ago I had a what if situacion. I can remember if I had sex with a lady I meet at the bar. There is no evedence that anything ever happend but, I freaked out about it. I had so many test I can even remember how many. Most of them I paid. The ones I remember follow like this,
- antibody test 10 weeks, 13 weeks, 16 wweks and one final at 22 weeks
- Naat test 12 weeks, 16 weeks and last at 19 weeks and they all came back negative, thank God
Should I go out and enjoy life and not ever test again?
All these test should be conclusive, right?
Response from Dr. Frascino
Your "so many tests that you can't even remember how many" out to 22 weeks, which included both HIV-antibody tests and NAAT, all of which were negative/undetectable, are definitive, conclusive and excessive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV testing is warranted. You've had way too much already.
Should you go out and enjoy life? Sure, but do it safely by using latex or polyurethane condoms for penetrative sex. And if you've got some extra time on your hands now that you wont' be spending so much time at the testing center, I recommend you consider taking a spelling and grammar refresher course! "Approxemettally," "situacion," "evedence," etc.
