I;m an RN trying to help
      02/02/06 12:58 AM

hello there. i am a 24 year old nurse who is writing a graduate paper on teens with HIV and their mental health. I stumbled upon your question and would liket ohelp you if i can.... I have extensive knowledge in HIV and what i can tell you is that HIV tests are accurate but the virus itself can take awhile to show in some people. I am not saying you may have it or not, i am just saying that it is great tha you tested negative at 3months but it is best to check again at the 6month mark and then at a year. the 6 month mark is a great and perfectly good guide to go by... meaning if you are negative at that time you are almost definetly negative completely. I hope that you retest at 6months just to make sure and until then, if you do have it now is the time it is most active in your body and you should prtect yourself and others during sexual activities.

hope i was able to help

RN from NYC
