So your saying?????

Apr 4, 2013

There is no way to have hiv with a 6 month negative hiv antibody test?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi There is a chance of a test result coming back at 6 months as positive but that is in about 1% of the population, but again with the sensitivity of the testing increasing every day and with science we know that the majority of those infected will develop the antibodies within the first 1-2 months.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

too worried
Can I get infected without hard sex
