scared to death

Apr 29, 2012

I recently tested positive for hiv and my wb test was underterminate. I always had a negative test in the past, my partner is negative, and I have no new sexual partners I can not think how this is possible. I heard of false positives in women who have multiple pregnancies but this is my first I don't know what to do

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi There are false positives. I would make sure they did the confirmatory testing, Elisa Test and PCR RNA. If these come back positive then you are if they are negative then you are negative. I have not heard that multiple pregnancies increase false positives in women.

Find this information out first before you start tracing your past, especially with your partners being negative.

Once you find this out, send me a message directly and we can continue the conversation.

Be well, Shannon
