Dr. Richard you are awesome!

Jan 29, 2013

I need your opinion and I figure you prolly will say 90 days, but I'm terrified of delayed seroconversion. I had one time unprotected vaginal sex and have been hiv 1/2 antibody tested out to 29 weeks from exposure. All negative but I still have extreme symptoms. I also tested negative for all hepatitis and htlv 1/2 at 28 weeks. Am I safe to have unprotected sex with my regular girlfriend who is totally clean or do I need at PCR test?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

You are well outside of the 90 day window. You are negative from this incident. If you are experiencing symptoms that have you concerned I would recommend a trip to your doctor. It is not HIV.

In health,


can saliva transfer hiv at window period.......when viral load is very high...?
