Up to 5 years?
Apr 19, 2009
my ex husband said the doctor that he saw said " HIV may not be detected up to 5 years" Is this true?? I thought you can detect hiv within 3-6 months or at the most a year after being infected? was he misinformed?..what do u think
Response from Dr. Frascino
Your ex-husband does not need to continue HIV testing out to five years from the date of exposure! Rather your ex-husband needs to find a more competent physician!
You are correct: HIV is detectable within three to six months.
