Hello doctor . Firstly thank you for the great service you are doing. I had a question regarding coinfection. With doubt of coinfection, negative hiv (antibody test) and negative (hepatitis c antibody) test can be considered conclusive at 21 weeks past exposure?
Response from Dr. McGovern
The official time frame that is always alluded to is 24 weeks. However, 21 weeks is certainly adequate, particularly if there was a low suspicion to start. Discuss that part with your physician.
