I recentley had a non-reactive test result for HIV 1/2 EIA AB Screen. My concern is that my possible exposure would have occured approximatley ten years ago. Would the body still be able to produce antibodies? Is further testing needed? Or is this it?
Response from Mr. Cordova
Once someone is infected with HIV, their body will ALWAYS produce antibodies. Three months after exposure, and for the rest of their lives, their body will produce enough antibodies that can be detected by an antibody test. You are negative.
