late seroconversion after neg ELISA?

Good afternnon! I have done test after 6 weeks, Elisa CMIA, 4th generation, negative. In the 11th week after exposure I loose my hair and I notice maybe I have ligter gums, I had problems with rashes from the third week until the 11th week post exposure, and I have sometimes burning sensation in my face and legs. In spite of these symtomes what do you think, can I believe that my test was not false negative? I fear so much??? Can the late seroconversion caused my symptomes? Please, answer me. Trinity

You need to test after the three month point.

Take the HIV antibody test three months post exposure, that will tell you if you are conclusively HIV negative. If you continue to feel sick, test for HTLV and other infections.

Best wishes.

And those doctors are on the same forum that enforces and advises the three month HIV antibody test - so apparently you selectively read what you want to read.

Everyone should get routinely tested for HIV antibodies, don't listen to anyone who tells you otherwise.

Well they're wrong - the gold standard for HIV antibody testing is three months.

Apparently the word 'conclusive' isn't in your vocabulary.
