Hello Dim,

Thank you for the question.

HIV can occur in people who have had risky behaviors, for example having sex with partners whose sexual history is not clear, mutually changing sexual partners, or exchanging needles that are not sterile. For each of the perpetrators of these actions, HIV testing is highly recommended so that the disease can be detected earlier, so that treatment and prevention efforts can be transmitted early.

In general, HIV testing can be done in a variety of ways, including through serological tests to detect antibodies to the HIV virus, as well as the way the One-step HIV test you performed previously. As long as it's done the right way at the right time (at least 3 months after risk behavior), the accuracy of this test is actually quite high (reaching 99%). Moreover, if judging from the results of other examinations that you have lived and the results are negative. So, most likely you do not have HIV.

When in doubt, you can consult further with your doctor or internist at the nearest health facility.

Hope this helps ...
