Hello sir! I am in 6th month of pregnancy from IVF cycle. I was tested HIV antibody negative before my IVF. But, 1 year prior to test and in the time of test i was using herbal tablets of herb Peruvian maca. I would like to know, is there any chance that consuming this tablets 1 year prior to test and in the time of test can make false negative results? Thank you sir!

Response from Dr. Wohl

There is no risk of any herb making the HIV test falsely negative.


Dr. Wohl could you please read this and help?
