hiv negative-positive
I have tested hiv negative ever since, and my husband of 4 years has just been confirmed positive with a cd4 count of 368. In those blessed 2 years of marriage, I tested negative four times. Even now after he has tested positive, I still tested negative. How do you explain this? Could it be true he is positive? I do not want to loose him. I do not want him to die. Please reply.

Madile, the chances of him testing positive twice in a row and still being negative are almost nil. If you want to stay negative, the best would be to not have unprotected sex. Good luck.
