HSV Anitbodies Affecting HIV Rapdi Test?
Apr 28, 2012
If your HSV antibodies are building up because you are about to get an outbreak, would you be more likely to test positive on an HIV rapid test?
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi Being tested for HIV and having HSV does not affect the outcome of the test. The HIV test is picking up your body building antibodies against HIV and what ever is happening in your body at the same time will not affect the outcome of the test.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
