Hiv testing question

I will be getting tested shortly, I have hsv2 and I was curious if I have a active outbreak, or the onset of one, if that could effect my results on a test. Such as a false positive or negative?


Thanks for any info.

Re: Hiv testing question

You never even had a risk of hiv, so nothing is going to effect this pointless test. Best advise, stop wasting your time and get on with your life jonny.

Re: Hiv testing question

Well I did have unprotected sex with a women and was tested at four weeks. I posted a thread about the reliability of test at four weeks. I was going to go for a follow up at 3 months time for conclusive results.


Since then, i had the thread I posted about kissing an oral sex. I'm not so much worried about them as much as my follow up test from before.

This is why I am asking the question about hsv2, as stress has done its job and made me break out.

Hope this clears the air, thanks for the fast response.

Hi,

The only reason for false negative results is if people test too early. Given that you appear to be testing at 3 months, this is not an issue for you.

There are many medical conditions that could and I stress the word could cause a false positive. As for your condition you should certainly mention it to the medical staff prior to your test and ask for their advice. It is unlikely to interfere with the result but any medical condition must be mentioned before any HIV test.

Kevin.
