      #193217 - 05/26/06 01:59 AM

Hi,

I'm the one who posted HIV symtoms. I did a blood test on HIV and VDRL. The result was negative for HIV and 1:16 ratio for VDRL. My doctor says this can be cured.

My worry is that can HIV infection in early stage show +ve for VDRL test? Can someone help me. I'm now is week 5-6

your doctor should of told you that you should come back to be retested at 3 months to be conclusive for the hiv test, although your iniatial results are encouraging. so relax , play safe and get your 3 month hiv test and dont worry anymore. love and peace

the hiv test looks for anti-bodies that are only produced in the presence of hiv virus.

however, get tested again at 3 months.
