hi, browsing through a few of the Q&A's there seems to be a lot of people writing in with low risk exposure but with some or all the symptons of hiv.
my question is, wouldn't you expect the symptons to be more of an indicator of whether or not they've got hiv than the exposure? or does your actual experience of such individuals (even with convincing symptons) tell you that the level of exposure is the more determining factor?
in brief, what does your experience tell you?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
My experience tells me, people have symptoms and then they have positive antibody tests. I will not discuss timing or other tests.
