HIV test negative?
One year after my last sexual intercourse, I had HIV tested and it was negative. 6 month later I donated my blood and still showed that I was HIV negative. Am I still negative for HIV if I didn't have sex with anyone? Or I have to retest it? How long for the latent period to be able to detect if you are infected?
I am very sure your safe. But just in case we will wait 15 more seconds until more people post. If the post above mine is correct then I have to research for myself because to me that sounds a little odd. Might take 4-7 years to show signs but a test should probably detect it within 1 day to 1 month but thats just what I think.
you sound like you are in the clear. usually it is a 6 mth period. be careful, use protection next time you have sex.
It can take up to 7 years for your body to show signs but it usually will only take about 4.
Getting a test after 6 months after intercourse should be accurate. So if your last test (the donation, it sounds like) was six months after your last encounter... you should be fine.
It can remain undetected for up to 6 months. If you were still clean after a year, you should be good. Presuming of course you weren't participating in other risky activities, like sharing needles or whatnot.
You are absolutely, without a doubt, HIV negative if what you said is true.
The tests commonly used to detect HIV infection actually look for antibodies produced by your body to fight HIV. Most people will develop detectable antibodies within 3 months after infection, the average being 25 days. In rare cases, it can take up to 6 months. For this reason, the CDC currently recommends testing 6 months after the last possible exposure (unprotected vaginal, anal, or oral sex or sharing needles). It would be extremely rare to take longer than 6 months to develop detectable antibodies. It is important, during the 6 months between exposure and the test, to protect yourself and others from further possible exposures to HIV.
DAMN...no azz for a year. Dude you lie like a rug. "Just wrap it b4 you tap it" (don't steal my sh**). Wrap it b4 you tap it...I'm so genius.
if u had intercourse with an infected person then you have a 100% chance of getting it! And as far as your blood signs are showing itself negative you ain't gotta worry! Normally as soon as the virus enters the body blood tests will show positive within an hour or it depends with the viruses multiplying rate. I think you are safe.
It sounds like you are in the clear. What you need to do is get tested every 3 months for one year. Continue to protect yourself. Use condoms every time.

Nice long scientific answer above, but the answer is no, they are testing for two different viruses, and they are different enough to not yield false positives for one another....
