Q and A


Does a ‘non-reactive’ result mean I am HIV negative?

I am 24 years old. I had sex 9 months ago with my boyfriend and I am now going to get married to someone else. I was afraid of getting HIV, so I got myself tested at Ranbaxy laboratory Amritsar after 8 months, and the result was non reactive.

They performed rapid card test, but know i fear that they had used an already used syringe. They used the vaccum system to collect my blood sample. please tell me whether the this type of syringe can be reused and am i infected with HIV or is it just my fear?



Non-reactive means you are HIV negative.

However the blood was collected, you are still HIV negative. Ranbaxy labs would not re-use syringes.

  2. Hi Dhanalakshmi. This website is for people who are HIV positive. If you only have hepatitis B and not HIV, then please talk to your doctor. If you stop taking hepatitis B meds, the hepatitis can become worse and become very serious.Sometimes hepatitis B is curable, but only for a small percentage of people.

    I paid for sex with a call girl. After 5 days I checked my blood (after 5 days) and the result is Non-reactive it means I am HIV negative that is clear. What I want to know though is, “how long does it take to show the true result”. Or I will have to recheck my blood after some days?
