Please Help!!
Sep 29, 2001

I was tested for Hiv 8 years after possible exposure and it was negative and I recently learned that a guy I was with is hiv+.I am really freaking out Should I be worried even though I had a test 8 years after I was with him and it was negative.Is there anyway the test was a false negative after 8 years?

Response from Dr. Aberg

NO, if it has been 8 years since you had contact with this person and your HIV test is negative, you do not have HIV. You do not need to get another test.

please respond
hiv and the poos
