reinfection - can it affect the window
Nov 6, 2005
Dr. Steve, this is a quick question, if I already took the test after 12 weeks, but had sex with my partner during that period, could it be that this reinfection that you mention sometimes, affected the window period and that 12 weeks was not enough time? Thank you very much in advance BTW how can this donations be made to your foundation?

Dr. "Steve?" Hmmm . . . actually I'm Dr. Bob. Dr. "Steve" is the tall fiercely handsome expert who runs the Tratamientos Forum.
I'm not sure I completely understand your question. To know if you have acquired HIV or not, you would need an HIV test 12 weeks after your last possible HIV exposure. So if you had unprotected sex with your partner or anyone else, you would still need a test 12 weeks after the last potential HIV exposure. I hope that answers your question. If not, write back, O.K.?
