    Does hiv hide in the body?

    Dear all

    I've recently been diagnosed with HIV. I have been testing negative since 2013. All of a sudden my test results came back positive in March this year. I've always tested four times a year and all those tests came back negative until the March 2017 test which came back positive. My CD4 is 188. Is this possible people ?

    What kind of tests were you taking. And, what test confirmed you were positive?

    Why were you testing four times a year? Were your having high risk activity?

    They used an ELISA test and the Western Blot. I've always tested for HIV randomly even though I was not at risk. The last time I had unprotected sex was in 2014 and since then my tests were always negative. All of a sudden this March I tested positive

    If your last encounter was in 2014, and you have tested several times since then, your positive result is a false positive. That's the risk you run when testing way too much. There's no reason to be testing for HIV when you know you're negative and are not having any potential encounters with HIV.
