EHIV making me wait
      #30126 - 03/19/02 01:17 PM

I have called the ehivtest.com about three times today and they keep telling me to call back in a hour. Well, that has been three hours now. Don't they know I almost have a heart attack each time they put me on hold? Geeze I want this to be over with. May your prayers be with me!!!!!!

JamieLee, you already found out that you are negative from your 3 month ELISA. Why are you worried?

I agree. PCR's aren't considered a good test to take for diganosising HIV anyway. You already have a negative antibody test.

Also did you know one of the reasons PCR aren't recommended is because they are so sensitive they are known to give FALSE positive results. Now wouldn't that be a bummer. I suggest you look back and find 'INFECTED's' old posts. He used a non-FDA approved test from Canada. He got a positive result. Turned out it was a false positive. I'm sure he would have preferred not to have to go through the hell he did because of a false positive.

Jamie Lee!!!!!! You listen to me my negative buddy!!!!! If I had a 3 month negative Elisa, you would NEVER hear me utter a word of fear again.........Get on your horse and ride! You are negative!!!!!!!!!!! Honey, if everyone says I am negative (after only a 4 week and 6 week test) then you are certainly NEGATIVE after a 3 month test.
Go out, have a glass or two of wine and celebrate life!

Trust me, as a person that has made worry an art form, it never seems to be worth the hell I put myself through.

Just keep reminding yourself that you have tested negative at the appropriate time and that means your test is conclusive. The PCR will just be icing on the cake.

When I called they told me to call back twice. I spoke with Jerry and she was really helpful. They had to call quest and have results faxed to them.
