Hi I have recently had a high risk of HIV over a year ago I've been getting tested for the last three months now.. I purchase three hiv kit over the counter swab and all three came out negative also went to the HIV/Aids clinic they gave me a rapid kit and I also tested negative there a month later I went to a health clinic and tested for everything and that also came back negative.. I don't know what to do anymore one doctor to me I need to see a psychologist.. I recently went to the hospital to check my blood count and everything on the charts seem to be falling below normal.. what should I do?? Is it possible to have HIV even though you tested negative five consecutive times after a year of possible exposure??

Hi there,

Thank you for choosing the AIDS Vancouver Helpline as your source of information.

Based on the World Health Organization's guidelines for testing, HIV tests are all conclusive at 12 weeks post possible exposure. So, if your last test was taken at 12 weeks post possible exposure (or after), and the results came back as negative, then the results are an ACCURATE indication of your HIV negative status.

As per your doctor's advise, you can consider getting some support/counselling in regards to the possible anxiety and stress you've been experiencing.

In health,

Moe- AIDS Vancouver Helpline Volunteer
