    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.

    You took the appropriate HIV test after waiting the appropriate time...and the results came back as "non-reactive" (i.e., negative). Thus, you are HIV negative at this time.

    Are you at risk? Well, not from this exposure. Have you had unprotected exposures since the previous one?

    No doctor....... but I had weight loss, fever and swollen glands after 5 months of SAME exposure. Then doctor sent me for Elisa and found Negative. I don't really remember was there any kind of flue or fever after 2-6 weeks of exposure.

    Is Elisa tests in India are reliable doctor..?
