My ex had a rapid test and the results on the paper was reactive negative/non-reactive. He told me that the doctor said the result was positive. I googled and on your feedbacks say that it is negative – I am confused and scared now. Can you please clarify this for me?
What do reactive negative/non-reactive results mean?
A non-reactive results means HIV negative. A reactive results means HIV positive. An indeterminate results mean the test results was unclear and needs another test.
There is no such thing as a reactive negative result – this could be a communication lad error and you need to refer back to the testing clinic for clarification.
