PLEASE ANSWER PLEASE.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

If in fact you have EB virus or CMV associated mono, it can take several weeks for the symptoms to go away. If a source patient were duelly infected with two viruses, it is possible to pass both on to someone else. A negative test at 6 weeks is good news, but not definitive to rule out HIV infection. You will need further followup testing at 3 months. MH
