When did I Get Infected?

Oct 2, 2005

Good Evening,

I Tested HIV-positive in the beginning of August. I got my Tcell and Viral load results today (Sept 26, 2005). My Tcell count is 845 and Viral Load 1200. I know that these results are good. But does this mean i recently got infected or have i been infected for years? I don't ever remember seroconverting, and I have never been sick to the point where I cannot get out of bed (Thank God).

Thank You.


Response from Dr. Holodniy

Unfortunately these results cannot tell you anything about timing of infection.

can u explain this #3
