12 week negative
      #257308 - 09/06/11 10:20 AM

First thanks for the knowledgable people out there, you have helped me a lot.

I took a oral test at 12 weeks, this follows my other test that I previously posted about. It came back negative. What causes someones immune system not to produce anitbodies until 6 months? I will probably follow up in 3 months with another test? I believe I am negative, but still there is that lingering concern that just does not seem to want to go away. Any suggestions to help me move forward?

On a better note, this whole experience has made me want to get more involved with HIV. I am going to start volunteering for local HIV/AIDS organization, I think I can make a difference and I want to try.

This site has been a gift from god, and I believe I owe to others like me, that just want help and advice.

Thanks.

odds,

your test result seems encouraging. I also encourage you to get a blood test to ease your mind.

I am so thankful for this site for its greatful information and support by everyone. I am too inspired to help others online and in my local community regarding HIV.

Good luck!

Rusty,

If you really want to help people, then STOP encouraging them not to believe their conclusive negative results.

Odds, unless you are on immune suppression drugs, chemotherapy or a long term IV drug user, you are absolutely negative.

12-week negative test result is conclusive! no more testing required. six months is an older standard. you are negative and will continue to test negative. no need to worry or test more.

I am not telling you to not to believe your test result of negative. Nor am I trying to scare this poster. I am just encouraging him to get another test to get a peace of mind. I do not mean any harm. Please know this.
