Hiv Test Non Reactive Means
Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more
I did 4th Generation HIV test after around 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15 weeks of an exposure. Is this 100% conclusive? Can I get back safely to my wife
Sero-conversion: The whole concept of delayed sero-conversion dates back to old & sloppy tests. PCR testing now will show virus in the blood with or without antibodies. If you need to cling to the old adages...at 6 months. 99.99% of the population will have developed antibodies after an exposure. Thus the 6 month window. I believe a colleague of mine Lyssette Cardona, MD is in Dubai. She's one of the best!! ...Read more
My friend who is 27 years old, got the HIV test done and the report says HIV : non reactive. What does it mean?
In general: Non-reactive means no response to the test. That is a good thing. ...Read more
Does getting a non-reactive result on an HIV test mean negative? Even with that result can you still be infected?
Yes,: Yes, non-reactive is negative. But you need to know a little more. There are two main ways of looking for HIV infection--by looking for the body's response to the virus (antibody tests) and looking directly for the virus. In the case of antibody tests (such as elisa and western blot) it may take 6-12 weeks to become "positive" (or rarely up to 6 months), so you can be "non-reactive" shortly after catching the disease, but still be harboring it. The test for the virus itself becomes positive much earlier in an infection, but is not generally described as "non-reactive" when it is negative. ...Read more
Does having non reactive HIV test 1 year after high risk exposure means im not infected with hiv? I used condom.
I have one red bump in my neck and I did anal sex before month and half is that mean I get hiv I did hiv test after 5 days and it was non reactive als?
Get a HIV nucleic acid test, if the result is negative, repeat the test in 6 months.
If you intend to continue having sex with men, talk to your doctor about taking pre-exposure prophylaxis.

I took a 5th gen Ag/Ab HIV test 39 days post possible exposure. Result was non-reactive. Am I ok?
Conclusive HIV test: "Fifth generation" for an HIV test is marketing hype -- the manufacturer calls their new test 5th gen, but it's still bacially the same as all other 4th generation tests. Results of 4th gen HIV tests are usually conclusive after 4 weeks and always by 6 weeks (42 days). But 39 days is close enough; for sure you didn't catch HIV. ...Read more
I had low risk hiv exposure I was tested with rapid hiv test at 6 month mark and 2.5 year mark both non reactive is it conclusive?
What does non-active on HIV test mean does it mean im negative or do I have something that's not showing up? Please answer
Negative: "Non reactive" means negative. Do understand that you could still have infection. It can take up to 6 months from date of exposure to "sero convert" to show up as positive on a test. You need to practice "safer" sex with the use of condoms for any intimate contact to minimize your risk of HIV or other transmissible diseases. ...Read more
After sex if I was douftfull and I went for HIV test after 1 month, 3 months and after 6 months 10 days -all were non reactive (negative) am I safe?
Hiv: Hiv- elisa will be negative for first six months after exposure. Therefore, checking 'hiv-pcr viral load' will be the correct option for you, to clear doubt with certainty. Good luck! ...Read more
My HIV test report say Non reactive by RIT Methods are mentioned. 1) Rapid immunochromatographic test 2)ELFA Why RIT mentioned specifically in result?
It is common,: Especially in HIV testing where there are several methods, to indicate which method is used. There are at least 4 generations of HIV tests....each successive generation provides more accuracy and earlier definitive results. The two methods mentioned in your question are earlier generation tests; final follow-up testing at least at 3 months after exposure, and possibly 12 months, may be recommended ...Read more
My wife is pregnant at ninth month, her HIV test result is 0.27 s/co "non-reactive", what is the meaning of this result?
Negative: It means negative.Get a more detailed answer ›
Not entirely: What test did you get? Antibodies to hiv, the usual test, take variable amounts of time to develop in different people. If you are antibody negative one year after exposure that would be more or less safe. Please consult your doctor for getting nucleic acid test that turns positive sooner, of one is infected. ...Read more
Likely you don't.: This window apparently can vary with the individual seroconversion. The recommended testing of patients is at initial exposure, at 6 weeks, at 3 months, and at 6 months. Many specimens positive with screening elisa are indeterminate on western blot, and so can be tested by immunofluorescence assay (ifa) more than one month later. If you are still negative after 1 year you likely don't have it. ...Read more

I got a HIV test yesterday after 12 months of the risk. The test said: HIV Ag/Ab Nonreactive. What does this mean?
What does it mean if an HIV test don't show either positive or negative after a repeated teast? Are those people positive? Any other test to check?
There are several ways to detect the HIV virus. The first is by antibodies. This includes eia (enzyme immuno assay). The rapid HIV tests are these types. The second way detects proteins on the viral coat (western blot). This is a gel plate electrophoresis. Thirdly there is pcr (polymerase chain reaction). This detects and amplifies dna allowing a viral ...Read more
