Now i still dont have hungry and all the time feel sick(hcv symptoms dont go away) Is it posible that hiv wont see in test because i have hcv too?? Thank you for answer!!

Response from Dr. McGovern

The quickest way to settle your anxiety is to get testing for hepatitis C since it has been 3 months since your exposure. By 3 months, most antibodies will become positive; retesting at six months, will be definitive.
