Acute Hepatitis C and HIV
Mar 7, 2009

Hi Dr. McGovern I know you said that if a person has Acute Hepatatis C ..then and only then will sercoversion "might" delay HIV antibodies at 1 year? Like does that mean if I test negative for Hep C at 6 months that My HIV tests at 6 months will be accurate as well? Is that the definition of Acute hep c?

Thanks you

Response from Dr. McGovern

Yes, if you are negative for both tests at six months - you are done!!! Worry no further.

I need your opinion
