Has anyone donated blood for the first time while on suppressive therapy? I didn't take my zovirax for 3 days prior to donating (per red cross after 9/11). I got a letter back stating inconclusive results regarding HIV
antibioties. That i needed to get tested for HIV. Scary!
They have a sentence in there that states almost all of these cases, individuals with these inconclusive results are found later not to have the infection at all. A lot of good that does for me going into a holiday weekend
Has anyone else had this and not been infected? I've had hsv2 for 12yrs or so, did have a hiv test around that time and it was negative. Even if i am *negative* I can't donate blood because of the rules. I can only donate to myself.
I don't remember.. how long does it take to get a hiv test back these days? is it still best to do it anonymous? cash vs insurance?
