As u guys know, my PCR is at 132 copies. Dr Bob, says that if i am already 220 days negative (elisa test), the PCR test is not needed. My doctor in my area is trying to put my mind at ease, and is now requesting me to take the PRO DNA test. According to him, this test is to test for HIV infection on new born babies. How does this 2 test differ?which is more accurate and sensitive? Also, i notice that my hairy bottom is now less hairy. Is this also a symptom of HIV? my palms are also sweating. What are the chances of me becoming a late seroconverter. I took the PCR test one week after my elisa test is negative. Do u guys think that after a space of 1 week, things could change just like taht....from a neagtive status to positive status?My left eye is really twiching like hell.....for is considered bad really afraid!pls advice accordingly!

thank you

regards from india

Your porblem is NOT HIV, however consistent anxiety and fear pertaining to HIV. I would advice you to address your anxiety and fears, rather than a disease, which you DO NOT have.


Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Love Ravi
