The Window Period in Michigan
      #16150 - 03/03/01 12:18 PM


Hey All!
I just took an anonymous test through a service in Michigan and they give out generic booklets telling you about the disease. The counselor there told me that the window period information was dated in it and told me the that current Michigan standard is that....
MOST people will test antibody positive by 21 days
ONLY IN RARE instances people will take up to three months to develop antibodies

Straight from the State!
That's probably why most people here are convinced that the three month window period is sufficent!
She also showed me the current research regarding transmission probability (going from memory here)
Receptive Anal 3-5 in 1000 will seroconvert
Insertive Anal 3-5 in 10,000
Receptive Vaginal 1 in 1000
Insertive Vaginal 1-2 in 10000
Shooting Drugs .78% (Highest)
Oral Sex-- No documented cases but evidence suggests that it is possible recieving, only theoretically possible inserting...

That's all she wrote! God Bless everyone here...

Thank you for sharing your information. Just one question, was the anonymous test through the Department of Health or a private center?

Not that it matters but I just wanted to know if that is the standard for the State of Michigan or a private testing center.

Thanks again for sharing the information you received with us here.

God Bless you too!

Regarding the "no documented oral sex transmission", there have been documented cases. About two years ago there were two, but they were, indeed, very rare. One involved a sadomasochist relationship, and the other one I cannot remember.

Oh, and there is no conclusive evidence on HIV. Some people will tell you that 21 days is enough, yet others will tell you to test again one year after the probable infection, but most will select the 6 month test. Now, it is my opinion, but since it is my health, and my life, I would preferably go, at least, with the 3 month, and preferably, the 6 month. It is a matter of opinion.

That the window period is now non-existent. She said that the true meaning of a window period is the time when you start abstaining from the last period of a sexual encounter so the HIV virus (if found) can be traced back to specific incident. I'm also in Missouri. Why would my counselor say that??? I'm confused about the window period now.

I've read this a couple of times, and I'm having a hard time understanding it. Can you re-phrase this to make it a bit more simple to understand? In addition, it does take a certain amount of time for the body to produce antibodies ..... and this "amount of time" is called the window period.

If you are going to put someone down, you would do well to learn how to write and spell properly, otherwise you just look stupid.

The idiot who can't spell and yet insists putting everyone down is here to enlighten us with his knowledge.

Should have expected it since they are having a snow day in the Northeast! School is out.
