Do you really want to be like this?


Dear Dr. Gallant,

I realize that you hate WW questions but in your honest opinion why does it take some people a long time to test + on the HIV test. A friend of mine had an encounter with a sex worker in 1998 and 6 weeks later had all the symptoms of ARS as diagnosed by his physician, yet his test is still negative as late as October last year. He even had a quantitative PCR that was neg too. Any reasons why the test would show false negative at this point?

Regards,
Jack


The most obvious reason would be that he's not infected....(duh!)

50-80% of people that are infected have ARS symptoms fever and swollen lymph nodes are the 2 most common.
