    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..?


    THANK YOU SO MUCH and APPRECIATED
