Question

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?

Answer

Yes.

Non-reactive means you are HIV negative.

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

  3. Hi Dhirendra, the Elisa test shows you are HIV negative but this is something that your doctor or the test centre needs to explain.
