fasting & delayed seroconversion
May 3, 2004


My question is could fasting maybe postpone seroconversion? I was fasting for 4 days 2 months after possible infection with a guy who claimed to be negative. I got negative test results in 11,5, 13,5 weeks and ~6 months time. Is there anything I should worry about? Thank you very much!

Response from Dr. Lee

Fasting will have absolutely no effect on the possibility of seroconverting or acquiring HIV infection. It is a good idea to have been tested, a better idea to use condoms and to better know the person with whom you are sexually intimate.

Be careful.
