Dear Sir. How are we ever going to eradicate this disease when we cant even come up with an adequate test to diagnose it. You know well if any of these people who are convinced they are infected and are, continue to test neg, eventually someone else is going to be involved. so how are we going to cure what we cant even find. At first I had read that the chances of testing neg well after the window period was as likely as hitting the lotto now I find out its more in the line of peelin off free fries at Mcdonalds monopoly game. there needs to be truth told and for the most part you do an excellent job but in some cases you dance around the truth like a lawyer, maybe thats because of the fear factor but for those that may have been exposed and are not testing pos they need to know the facts straight up so this [censored] can be stopped in its tracks. Im sure some of these people have other significant ones in their lives. Please don't take me wrong doctor you should be praised and commended for the time that you put to this cause, others on this site wont even answer am i infected question, and I could understand that if false negatives at 6 months were 100%. i mean 1 in a thousand chance is like seeing a motorcyclye on a summer day amongst 999 other vehicles. Dont mean to ramble on doctor but you need to see our point.

Dr. Holodniy's Response:

I take your point. But we all need to remember that this forum is inteded for viral load and resistance testing and not diagnostic questions. Second, there is just not enough data to answer the questions you all are asking about testing accuracy...
