IF PARTNER DIFFERENT AND HAVING NO LATEST HIV REPORT THEN SHE OR HE MAY BE POSITIVE DUE TO UN SAFE SEX BETWEEN THIS PERIOD SO MOSTLY THERE IS NO DANGER OF GETTING HIV INFECTION IF PARTNER IS NEGATIVE BUT IF PARTNER IS MIXING WITH MANY AND THEN EVEN FOR 06 MONTHS SIMPLE HIV TEST NEGATIVE DOESNOT MEAN HE IS NEGATIVE FOR HIV IT IS APPLICABLE ONLY IF BEFORE THE DAY OF MEETING HE HAS UNDERGONE HIV DNA PCR AND IT IS NEGATIVE MEANS NEGATIVE.

Hello.

Thanks for writing to us.

Having a non reactive result for HIV does not suggest that person has not contacted a fresh infection in last six months. If he was involved in unsafe sex then there is every chance of him getting an infection and then transmitting it to you. Get an ELISA test done to know your present status.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Regards,

Dr. Praveen Tayal
