Hiv antibodies detections

Apr 29, 2012

Hello! I had unprotected sex one year ago.3 months later I had an ELISA test which came negative.then after six months another one-same test- which was also negative...and one more now negative again..i've heard that some people may never produce HIV antibodies! is that true? also could the fact that last year I had mononucleosis affect the results?should I have another test like the one using the PCR method? Thank you for your time! :)

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi You are HIV negative! Mono will not affect the outcome of the test. Everyone will test negative or positive after 6 months from exposure.

There's no need for any further testing.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
