Syntoms without Elisa test positive
      #205082 - 08/27/06 07:54 AM

I have been reading some texts and i have read lots of times that there are people with HIV, that remain soronegative for long periods without Elisa tests get positive.
I don´t understand well, but is there any reason for this to occur, is there any justificacion???
Thanks

What you are reading must be written by people that are HIV negative and don't believe it.

If you have a negative result on the ELISA at 3 months or more, then you simply don't have HIV. If you are concerned about certain 'symptoms' then you need to see your doctor in order to determine what is the cause.

Many people think their symptoms are caused by HIV, totally overlooking the fact there are NO specific symptoms to HIV, so if their test is negative they need to be looking into other causes. That goes for you also if you have already tested negative.

In rare cases a person might not produce antibody or have a rare strain that will not be picked up by a regular antibody test. An example would be hiv1 and hiv2. The test are indeed accurate in detection antibody if present.

You're quick to say stuff, but no so quick to cite your sources. Just where did you read the condom percentage. Of course, anyone that's made it to 20 and believes that needle nonsense, isn't one I want to believe.
