Almost 4 years after the last unprotected sex, I have have been tested negative many times by elisa and one pcr<50. My CD4/CD8 ratio, however, is consistently below 1 (around 0.89-0.94). I am very concerned. I don't know if this has anything to do with my gender (female). What should I do? Thank you.
Response from Dr. Jackson
This CD4/CD8 ratio is a little low but can be found in normal healthy people. It is nothing to worry about.
