Hi doctor my name is alex I'm gay well my problem is that I had anal sex with an hiv+ poz guy he never told me about his status till we saw each other for the last time well we had sex like 4 times he never come inside me so when I was in the window period I test my self 3 months later of hiv expouse and my results were negative and I re-tested again after 5 months and my results were also negative and then I've got the las results after 6 months got the rapid hiv test and it was negative at 6 NAAT test on me and I've got the results in a week and it was negative do think I'm still in danger to comeout poz because I've talk to so many doctors n nurses about this and they tell me that it could be dormant in my body that's why it doesn't show up in the blood test yet that I got to continue doing follow ups cause it could come out in 8 months or years later that I was exposed to hiv and that I need to be doing follow ups till 10 years to see if I didn't get infected

Response from Dr. Frascino


Your repeatedly negative HIV-antibody tests out to six months plus your undetectable NAAT are conclusive, definitive and WOO-HOO-able. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No, HIV is not lying dormant. No, HIV cannot "come out" months to years later. No further HIV-related testing is warranted. The information you received from "so many doctors and nurses" was wrong. You can read much more about HIV-diagnostic testing in the archives of this forum and elsewhere on this site. Have a look.

WOO-HOO! You're HIV negative!
