Postive Elisa, Negative Western Blot

Jan 21, 2011

I went for routine prenatal blood work and my elisa test came back reactive but my western blot came back negative. I just need to know if I'm HIV negative or not! I've been worrying and losing sleep over this.

Response from Dr. Frascino


A positive screening ELISA and negative confirmatory Western Blot is considered a negative HIV test.
