My girl friend and I recently took the clearview rapid HIV 1 and 2 antibody test. Her last unprotected sex was nine months ago. However, a week or two before she took the test, she was on a five day course of prednisone. Will this affect her negative result? Wii the prednisone cloak, mask or somehow rid the body of the antibodies for HIV? Should we test again or do an NAT test?

Response from Dr. Wohl

Prednisone will not interfere with the results of the HIV antibody test. DW

Oral, JO, Fingering and Truvada
Am I seroconverting?
