    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yes, you can trust these results.

    The window period is 3 months. HIV tests after three months are conclusive and reliable.

    Antibiotics do NOT affect antibody production or HIV test reliability.

    If you had "full-blown AIDS" you would be too sick to post on the internet. You'd be in the hospital right now.

    You can put these concerns behind you and move on with your life. You do not have HIV.

    Hi Crazybobbo,

    I'm so happy to hear that your results came back negative and you can now put this fear behind you. Use the safe precautions we've been taught, and you should be on your way.

    It's great to see that our community has been helpful to you. The best way to "donate" is to give back to the community. You can do that by checking in every so often and sharing your experience and how you overcame your fears with others going through the same thing.

    That's what's so wonderful about communities...everyone is sharing real life experiences that they learned from.

    Thanks for sharing yours with us! I hope we'll be seeing more from you on the other side of the fence from now on. :)
