|Symptoms at 7 months later, but HIV-???
Dec 31, 1998
Is it possible for a person not to develop ARS symptoms for say seven months after a highly likely exposure. And, to continue to test negative even 13 months after the same mentioned exposure (or six months after these symptoms appear). Or does a person test positive if truly infected at the same time as the symptoms occur?

It is possible for someone to become HIV infected and not have symptoms, or at least not have symptoms they can remember. If would be extremely unlikely that someone would become infected, have no symptoms, and also have NO evidence of HIV antibodies. Usually the symptoms and the positive blood tests go together. MH
