      #252996 - 11/08/10 10:58 AM

after suffering the very well known symptoms, the rash, sore throat, oral thrush, fever, headaches, chills, loss of appetite etc, i took my second hiv test at 7 weeks after possible exposure. this came back negative. does this mean the test i take in a few more weeks will also remain negative??

3 months elisa antibody test is the current standard. That said I have been on here for years and have never seen anyone with a 6 week negative test turn positive at 3 months I would say it is a VERY good indication hat you are HIV negative
