Late symptoms

Mar 11, 2003

Hy, Sorry about my english, but i didnt found a forum in mi lenguage,

First of all, thanks helping all us with our worries, I have to questions

Q1 Is possible to develope symtoms after 18 months of a low risk exposure, symtoms of seroconversion, like anomalies in the skin and mouth, and swollen glands in the neck.

Q2 I tested negative after 12 months, whit a second generation ELISA test, can I live without worring about relating symptoms with HIV


Response from Dr. Frascino


Let me answer your second question first. Testing negative 12 months after an exposure is conclusive: You are HIV-negative.

I'm assuming that answers your first question as well. Right?

Stay well.

Dr. Bob

not a "worried well"
Would love to hear a WOOHOOO!
