hpv or herpes affect hiv test?
May 30, 2002
hello and thank you, I had unprotected oral sex(no semen)but pre semen,With a high risk hiv person,so I got tested 5 mo. later and result was negative.I have hpv and possibly herpes. Could having those virus interfere with hiv test results? Also could taking in small amount of virus take longet than 6 mos. to detect?
Response from Mr. Kull
Being infected with HPV or herpes will not affect the accuracy of the HIV antibody test.
