Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I'm sorry to hear about this
Can you list the results again for me to interpret?
HIV 1/0/2 Abs, Qual Repeatedly Reactive Abnormal Reference Interval-Non Reactive Lab 01
The Western Blot says Negative and the antibodies all say Absent
The Abs-Index Value is 2.23
Okay, this means he does not have HIV even though the antibody test is reactive, the western blot is the confirmatory test and since it is negative it means he does not have HIV
We just took another test today and the lady said that if the numbers show up at 4-5 tomorrow and Antibodies are present then he does have it. As you can see we are nervous and distraught since we were trying to have a baby doing IVF. Is there a chance that tomorrow the Western Blot test might show up Positive?? I ask because he swears he has not had any exposure recently, he thinks if he contracted it it was from 20 years ago. My test was negative and we have been married for 12 years. I guess my last question is, if he has been carrying the disease, from back then, I should be positive, is this correct?
Yes, if he has been carrying the disease for 20 years, you should have it as well
It is unlikely his western blot will show up positive tomorrow
Since it has already been negative
Thank you!! You are an Angel!!
