Anything is possible, right...??

Jan 10, 2011

Hi Dr. Bob!

I will keep to the point for ya.

What are the possibility of having 6 negative ELISA tests out 2 years post exposure?? I'm under the belief I'm the rare breeed of "non producing antibodies". I'm a healthy 30 year woman. But have had many changes inmy heath after my exposure to my HIV poz EX boyfriend in Jan. 2008.

I just want the raw deal facts here... I know nothing is ever 100% when it somes to illness detection. But in the case of having direct HIV exposure how many negative tests can be reliable???

Please advise.... Thank you!!

Response from Dr. Frascino


Since you kept to the point, so will I. You are HIV negative. Your six negative ELISA tests out two years from your last exposure are definitive, conclusive and WOO-HOO-able!

If you were "the rare 'breeed' of 'non producing antibodies,'" you wouldn't be "a healthy 30 year woman."

Stop testing. Stop worrying. Start WOO-HOO-ing.

Dr. Bob
