Negative Test Results Print

Negative test results mean that there are no HIV antibodies detectable in the blood. Consequently, negative test results mean that the individual who was tested has not been infected with HIV at the time of the test.
However, negative test results do not mean that the individual is immune from the virus or that the individual will not become infected at a later time.
Whether the test results are negative or positive, it is always recommended to avoid putting yourself at risk of exposure to HIV. Practice safer sex by using latex condoms every time. Practice safer needle use by using clean needles every time.
