Non reactive means negative test/
That means you do not have HIV.
That is a normal result.
Th disclaimer is a standard for HIV test.
A negative HIv test is more than 99% accurate.
So I am okay?
However, if you have any risk factor like multiple sexual partners, unprotected sex with new partner with unknown HIv status, needlestick injury, the test should be repeated after 10-12 weeks for confirmation.
That is what the lab disclaimer means.
Yes you are perfectly ok.
I'm married and have only him as a sexual partner. His result came back negative, I just wanted to make sure.
ok --then do not worry .
Should I make an appointment to get more blood work done from my doctor just to be sure?
your result is very accurate.
that is how a negative HIv test reported by every standard lab.
Okay, Thank you. I really appreciate it.
