Returnable?
« on: April 12, 2016, 03:06:01 pm »
Kind of confused still about this.  I tested positive about two years ago. I was then sent to a specialist to have extensive blood work done a couple days later and the results can back negative. I was told I had positive antibodies but my complete test was negative so my body cleared it on its own. I have since then had two more tests done and they were negative with positive antibodies.  I am just curious if it can come back (with no needle use) but if I drink alcohol or am taking meds. Also curious/worried cuz my small child used my tooth brush a couple times (my gums bleed sometimes) just hoping for any info. Thanks!

You do not have the virus in your body so there is nothing to return. The initial exposure cleared so you will always have antibodies to the virus. This situation is more common than most think. In fact the overall numbers that naturally clear is very debatable. It is assumed that 25 percent who are exposed to the virus in one way or another clear but this number might be on the low side of what real numbers of those who clear the virus without having the disease ever reach a chronic stage that the body cannot clear.
