Possible time of infection

Apr 13, 2008

Recently I rapid tested positive for HIV with a CD4 count of 243. My husband of 8 years and child born within that time have both tested negative. I am speculating therefore as to my possible time of infection. With a count that low at age 30, is there any way to estimate the time at which I may have been infected?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Unlikely that you would be able to know unless you had previous negative HIV tests.
