What type of HIV Test is more Reliable?
      05/01/01 04:43 PM

My doctor is going to draw some blood on Thursday because I am pregnant and she does all type of pre-natal testing. I may be at risk due to sharing a lancet with someone who is gay but I don't know if he is HIV (see "Am I At Risk" post below). What type of test should she use to see if I have the HIV virus? This incident happened in January and it is now almost four months later. I took a test in mid-February which was negative but now I want to set my mind at ease that I am truly negative. I have my baby and my husband to think about and I don't want to have to worry about this throughout my entire pregnancy. Do I need to wait three more months or will I get a valid test now and if so, what test do I need to take?

Thanks!
