Hi, Ive had a worry for so long its taking its toll on me. I'm worried about having hiv. Ive had 4 blood tests done,one with differentials, many urine tests and a biopsy done. Plus i had a full evaluation in order to be transfer to another hospital. I signed a few forms as well. Do you think i need to continue worrying?

You need to request for HIV antibodies test ( ELISA with western blot confirmation) specifically.

If this test is negative then you do not need to worry about HIV.

Chances are your test will be negative given other normal tests.
