Re: can a full blood count detect the HIV virus

I don't know for sure if the test you are having will show it or not, best thing to do is have a HIV test. That way you will know for sure and you can stop all the worry. Rest your mind, just have the test to know for sure. If you are postive it is not the end of the world, you will continue to live you life. If you are negative you know you are negative and can stop worring about it.

Sorry this is not the answer you were looking for, but it is the best thing to do.

Good Luck!!!

Ipsey's Friend is absolutely correct. A "full blood count" (CBC) does not test for HIV. You need to get tested for HIV in order to determine your status. chris
