Where did you get your percentages? According to GMHC, New York Health Dept, the CDC, the Body, AIDSmed, etc over 99% of people infected with HIV will have tested positive by 3 months. The 6 month window period is those who have have a delayed response due to co-infection with HepC, taking PEP, or taking immunosuppresant drugs. I think you need to stop post inaccurate information because it only scarres people unnecessarily.

you are incorrect.

98.5% of all people w/HIV will test positive by week six, 100% of ALL HEALTHY PEOPLE with test POZ by week 12 or 3 Months.

healthy people = you UNLESS you have a IV drug habit for 2+ years, a recent organ transplant or advanced cancer.

12 weeks = 100%. case closed.

please do NOT test for HIV after 3 months as it is unneccesary and waste of valuable testing resources. we are in the middle of a global pandemic and people taking superfluous tests for an extra 3 or 4 months is not only selfish and frivolous but it costs money and perhaps lives.

if you test negaive for HIV 12 weeks after a possible exposure, you don't have HIV.

I noted one anon msg(12/7/04,10.51am) on the possible inaccuracy of the HIV test when there is immunosuppressant drug used and that test should be conduct 6 months.
I have been reading this lively forum and now I am concerned for myself.
I have an encountered and had sensory neuropathy(SN) immediately the next day. Did not think too much about HIV until I read that the SN could trigger quick immediately by HIV even within hours in some research articles. The whole autoimmune system could just go bonkers for neuro attacks as I read and believed.
Saw a GP and he thought it was Idiopathic Neuro. and prescribed Prednisone for me. Took it for a few days and it did not go away. So now I know it was an immunosuppression drug.
6 weeks later did an Elisa which came negative.
SN still exist and I fallen sick with low grade fever for 2 months. Have taken Prednisone now and then but I vaguely remember if I ever took it for more than a week.
After 8 weeks, I have all the HIV stated standard symptoms packaged with anxiety and depression. 10th week I had another fever.
After 19th week, went for Rapid Test and it came negative. I would have accepted it but large lymph nodes progressively start to show at the base and back of neck. 21st week I had another fever.
So now I am not too convinced I am cleaned even with the 19th week Rapid Test due to the continuing lymph nodes progression.
Reading your msg on the immunosuppression drug inferred that maybe the immunosuppression drug was affecting my results.
What do you guys think?
Jazz, if you can review this, do some research and give your advise wisely, would appreciate. Thanks. Wish me luck. Scared for family.
