Duel Infection Window Period?

Sep 26, 2007

Say someone had unprotected sex with someone that was superinfected, two types of Hiv, would the window period still be 3 months? would it take longer to show? or earlier to show? I searched in the forums for an answer and found nothing. Considering you don't know the status of that person?

My mistake was a one 45 minute roll in the hay, back in Jan. 2006. Unprotected, stupid I know, first time other than spouse that I had sex outside of marriage. Heat of the moment thing. Usually I am pretty smart, cautious and a thinker. I tested May 2006 Elisa neg, RNA ULTRA QUANT Non-dectable in June 06, all STDS NEG and HEP Panel Neg. One year and four months later, had Hiv 01/0/02 and all stds, Hep panels neg.

Your help would be appreciated, you crack me up, I love to just read your replys, you are so funny, sometimes I laugh till my side hurts...You are an angel! Take care and be well!

Response from Dr. Frascino


The window period would be the same for dual infection.

Your repeatedly negative HIV tests out to 1 year 4 months from your extramarital mattress mambo are definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how.
