HIV positive or negative?

May 23, 2010

Hello doctor, I think i have been having panic attacks. I have not been able to sleep. I am very distress. finally i found someone whom i can ask anything without having appointment. you are my god!!!I have sore throat for 1 year now. is repeatedly positive elisa along with symptoms proof of hiv. My western blot is negative. I have had protected oral sex and vaginal sex with prostitutes. I hope you will reply back...

Response from Dr. Frascino


A repeatedly reactive (positive) ELISA with a negative Western Blot outside the window period is considered a negative HIV screening test. Your test results would indicate you are HIV negative.

Can I donate through Credit Card?
