Please help me I'm so scared
Jul 31, 2002

Dear Dr,

I've tested negative at 8 months following a high risk exposure with a HIV + male. I've testeed negative via ELISA. Does this rule out infection with HIV or do I need to test again. I'm hoping to get pregnant (with my HIV negative partner) in the next couple of months, do you think it is safe to do so?



Response from Dr. Jackson

I think that you are not HIV infected if you have tested HIV antibody negative 8 months after your exposure.


Pregnant & Curious...
HELP! My sex drive is gone!
