HIV Test Result false negative due to consuming vitamin tablets?

I am taking some vitamin tablets as I am suffering from vitamin deficiency. I took a HIV test after 6 months of risky behavior and my test result was negative. My question is that can my HIV test show a false negative result due to consuming vitamin tablets?

 

Dear Friend,

Thanks for trusting me with your question.

Taking vitamin tablets will not affect your HIV test results at any point. If a HIV test after 6 months of risky behavior (any activity that would put you at risk of contracting HIV virus) gives negative result, you are HIV negative i.e you have not contracted the HIV virus.

Remember, HIV/AIDS can happen to anyone. So protect yourself always.

Kind regards,
Dr. Punewali
