    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.

    There is no need for further testing. You are HIV negative.

    For future reference, keep in mind that this virus is extremely delicate outside the body, typically living only seconds outside the warmth and protection of the human environment. Thus, you were never in any risk from this business in the first place.

    These levels mean absolutely nothing in terms of your HIV status.

    The only tests that can provide useful information regarding ones status are those specifically designed to test for HIV. Which you have undertaken several times with "non-reactive" (i.e., negative) results, indicating you are HIV negative.
