What does 'grey zone reactive HIV' mean?
Q: I am a 23 years old boy and have taken a second HIV test after 7 months from the date of exposure to the risk. The result was grey zone reactive (>/=1 Reactive). What does grey zone reactive mean? Am I safe from the risk or not? My first HIV test was non-reactive (<0.90 Negative). Please advise.
A:Your test result is negative which means there was no evidence of HIV infection in your blood when the test was done. The mention of grey zone reactive refers to a level which is not definite negative nor definitely positive. This level does not apply to your report, as your test result is non-reactive or negative.
