Response from Dr. Wohl
I am not completely sure I understand. Sound like:
At 3.5 months the Western blot was in determinate. At 5 and 6 months finger stick rapid test was negative But at 6 months blood draw ELISA positive.
This is concerning and if the Western blot is positive this would indicate infection with HIV. It could be you were seroconverting at around 3 to 4 months and the finger stick tests were not done correctly or were insensitive for some reason.
