I had a blood test HIV 1/0/2 Abs-ICMA which came back as non-reactive

Resolved Question:

I had a blood test HIV 1/0/2 Abs-ICMA which came back as non-reactive <1.00. Does this mean that I definitely have HIV-1? Should I be retested right away or wait. My exposure was 6 months ago.
Submitted: 5 years ago.

Hello,

Non-reactive <1.00 means the test is negative. So at this time there is no evidence that you have HIV based on this test result. If the exposure was 6 months ago, retesting is generally not needed after a negative test result.

Best Regards.
