Common Questions and Answers about What is hiv negative mean

hiv

Avatar m tn 1. does it mean that a positive person would come out negative on an antibody test? I am a bit confused.
Avatar m tn ANY value less than 1.0 for any HIV test taken 3 or more months after a risk event is a conclusive, negative result. The value will change every time you test, but if it is less than 1.0, you are negative. Your value WILL NOT rise, because you tested conclusively negative at the appropriate time. You do not have HIV from this event. If you have questions about other diseases, please post in the appropriate forums. You can click on the "communities" link at the top to find those.

Ive just been recently diagnoised and due to the shock (still in shock) i have not been back to the clinic for any advise, counselling or information. Only what I have read on MedHelp...all this is still new to me so please forgive my ignorance.
Avatar m tn as part of my checkup there was a test done which i did not ask for and it said MEIA, lgg- Negative. What does that mean ,what did i get tested for without my knowledge .
Avatar n tn Negative...conclusive. You don't have HIV.
Avatar m tn What are you actually asking? Does negative have the same meaning as undetectable? Someone is HIV positive but has an undetectable viral load? Can't answer your question without knowing what you mean.

Avatar f tn They should be offered a 4th generation laboratory HIV test and advised that a negative result at 4 weeks post exposure is very reassuring/highly likely to exclude HIV infection. An additional HIV test should be offered to all persons at 3 months (12 weeks) to definitively exclude HIV infection. Patients at lower risk may opt to wait until 3 months to avoid the need for HIV testing twice.
Avatar m tn from your experience, is there any chance that the later test couldn't detect the virus due to cut off patameters? No, you said you tested after 3 months, which means the result would have been conclusive. Also, would this weakly reactive fall into the category of 'false positives'?. I read they are very rare... I would guess it was more likely a testing malfunction of sorts.
