12 month test because of coinfection?

Aug 15, 2001

Hey there. The CDC says that it has taken longer than 6 months to test pos. exactly two times in the history of hiv. So why, in the hepc/hiv forum are they saying that you should test at 12 months to be sure you are really negative? If the person I slept with had a coinfection, would it take me longer to produce antibodies to HIv or Hep C? Or is SIX MONTHS SIX MONTHS??????
