    I got two tests done for HIV already and they both came back Negative, does that mean that HIV doesnt develop later on? I was under the impression that HIV even though not found during a test could develop over time, or is that AIDS, and im confusing the two?

    Also does that mean that i should get tested everytime im at the DOCTOR? what if im abstanant?

    you should probably check out with key words HIV TEST in order to get more information on this topic :)

    btw for Lighter... the easiest way to fix a computer would be through the use of cellotape and super glue... works wonders for me...

    hiv is the virus that causes aids.

    having antibodies for this virus, is the most popular test to see f you have the aids virus.

    there is a period of time where a person can have contracted aids, but the antibodies have not formed yet, so the person can test aids...even though he does in fact have aids.

    I believe the false negative period of time is 6 months.

    in general, if you've gotten two tests, further apart then 6 months, and no additional behavior has been performed that can cause aids in this period of time, then you are free of the virus
