Welcome to HCM.

There may be two reasons for your test interpretation.
1. When it is done a little early (before a full blown sero-conversion) , it may be like indeterminate. If you repeat the test after another 15 days you may be getting a positive test if infected.
2. Vaccinations also may produce a false positive result.

HIV DNA PCR may be helpful for you.
