tests to determine when one was infectef

Aug 18, 2013

I recently discovered i was positive in my fourth month of pregnancy and was wonderong if there are tests i can undertake to determine how far back i was infected.Upon my diagnosis in january my cd4 count was 254 and my viral load was 61000. However,my ex partner of 5 years is negative and the only other chance is my current partner since i have not been with anyone else.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

In general no, unless you have previous negative test results to go back to.
