HIV ARS vs. acute HBV
Mar 28, 2008

Hello. I am writing again over a possible coinfection with HBV/HIV. I tried 2 times before and check this forum for my answer for 3months now. I had an anal ejac exposure and all symptoms HIV related 5months ago. Then I also was recovering from an acute HBV I got from my ex BF and which was horrible for my body. I got tested 5 times for HIV past 8 months. Last test is a 4th gen Elisa Ag/Ab blood test took at 20 weeks post HIV exposure (17 of March). Result is non reactive , 0,35% reactivity. I am scared because I had another Elisa test, same kit, back on 5 of Dec. Non reactive, 0,25%reactivity. Do you also sense an increase in reactivity? Please, I am so scared and I am hopefully waiting for an answer for 3 months now and very scared. I had white tongue and aftas still, and has not cured in 5months, with treatment.....Please, I beg you Ms. Mcgovem....

Response from Dr. McGovern

Please post HIV related questions to the HIV forum.

It appears that your testing is reassuring. You should obtain testing out for six months after exposure.
