BRAVO!!!!!......it about time we see some truth here on this subject. Of course those with the information chip on thier shoulder, will call the professional a liar.

"variability in the immune response (time to produce anti-HIV antibodies) which is different from person to person, limitations in the test's sensitivity and specificity (ability of the test to pick up all true positives or eliminate all true negatives), and clinical judgment. In addition, there are special circumstances where our general recommendations for testing might not be applicable. "

thats what people need to be told, followed by, GET YOURSELF TESTED...these half baked window number games are probably the biggest mislead info being posted. It boils down to the political bigwigs saying "oh no, this is gonna make me look bad"...."Poindexter, study 5,000 people, and make a report, i need something to tell the general public by morning" voila....a window period is adopted*

In closing the anonymous know it all who states "only a person with aids would post something like that here"...let me remind you, this is an HIV/AIDS forum board, NOT a mental health issue board, and for you to say something in that context shows that YOU dont belong here.Before calling the doctor a liar, or posting discrimenating remarks.. i urge you to post your own crudentials,and scientific knowledge that you base your information on. Doctors get thier knowledge by working with this first hand, but a person with HIV/AIDS learns the whole picture of it because they LIVE with it, thier Life depends on knowing. People coming and expressing FEAR is one thing entirely different than those who come look for diagnostic answers, or absessing. that you seem to think you are qualified to answer. The internet is no place to go for diagnosis, nor is it a place for anyone with fixated FEAR issues dominating thier life.

Getting educated on prevention/transmission and GETTING TESTED, is what needs to be told. they are the only things proven to work in stopping the spread of this.
