i have been with my partner for 4 years and had unprotected sex. he just took the test at the same time and came back negative. however, i slept with someone elase once about 3 months ago and the condom broke.. this was only risk encounter and my partner doesnt know about it. please let me know what my chances are of being negative to hiv.. i have a 5 year old daughter and i don't due any drugs..i am also on the depo prevera shot to prevent pregnancy...i don't take any other medications and i took the flue shot about 6 months ago.. please help. my elisa test came out reactive a week ago with the western blot being interminate with p24 and no bands... i then took the hiv 1/0/2 abs. qual and it came out non reactive with index value <1.00 specimen reactivity relative to the negative cut off.. why did i have to take the hiv-rna test if i might be negative and i read this is only when positive to read the advancement on hiv virus?? i am waiting on this test aND I am very nervous..
The test you've listed the HIV panel 083824 is negative, which is very sensitive, meaning that you have an extremely unlikely chance of being positive. It sounds like the RNA and other PCR tests are your doctor's attempt at being very careful because so far the most helpful tests have been non-reactive which means that it is very very very likely that you are HIV negative.
I hope you can get some reassurance with this and best of luck wtih the test results.
