Concerns no possible exposure

Apr 21, 2012

Im just very scared for false posivte results do to so many things i read here i tested negative in my pregnancy have never been exposed and terrified of false positive this is freaky what chance is that?

Response from Ms. Southall

HI If you had no possible exposure then HIV transmission is not possible. Though having unprotected sex is an exposure. Being tested during your pregnancy is good. The first test should be 3 weeks from the day of exposure and then again in 3 months. If these test are negative then you are negative from the exposure.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

PLEASE- Clarification Needed!! HIV/STD from Pelvic Exam (new mother)
Can I trust these results?
