quick question please
Mar 21, 2008

Hi Dr. McGovern,

a quick question, please:

Can I be reassured that neither HCV nor HIV (simultaneous) infection took place when modern up-to-date ELISAs for both are negative at 9 month after risk ?!

And is it, according to your experience with patients, even in the presence of some strange flu-like symptoms for the whole period, having started about two weeks after risk ?!

Generally I have been a healthy person...

Farewell Dr., thank you very much.

Response from Dr. McGovern

Your testing was done at six months. You are in the clear.

HIV+ HBV+ & Pregnancy
HBsAg - Reactive
