Question: Hi Sir,
I am a 35 Yr old female.

I was in a relationship till July 2017 which ended abruptly by July end.
Now I am getting married. So as a precaution, to be on safer side, I screened myself for Hiv as I am entering a new relationship.
The result has come out as "Non Reactive".
I am glad to see the results but wanted a confirmation from you that I can confidently proceed with my new relationship.
Since I have anxiety problems, wanted to get an assurance from you on the same.

Brief Answer:

Non reactive means you are negative!

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

I have gone through your query and I can understand your concerns.

HIV non reactive implies you are free of the disease and no need to worry. You can repeat the test from another laboratory for your own reassurance.

Hope I have answered your question.

Wishing you good health.

Sure thanks!
That's a great relief.
I am confident about the laboratory I went to. So I don't want to repeat the test.
Hope I can proceed with unprotected physical relationship with my spouse after marriage.
