The CDC says 3 months might not be enough?! Help please!!
Apr 25, 2012
I know you say that 3 months is conclusive, but the CDC says that only 97 percent of people will produce antibodies in that time. What are the other 3 percent? People with bad immune systems? Please Help!!!
Response from Mr. Cordova
The other three percent are people with certain auto-immune disorders (you would know if you had one), or someone who was infected with Hepatitis at the same time as HIV, and was experiencing symptoms of acute Hepatitis infection. It's not for people with "bad immune systems"
Bottom line: For the general public, three months is conclusive.
