hi

regards from india

A HIV test performed at 12 weeks is accurate/definitive. Only under certain conditions, for example a person suffering from an auto immune disease , testing at 24 weeks may be adviced.


Goodluck

Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Love Ravi

Yes it could take a body longer to produce anti-bodies with a co-infection. Just common sence when a body is trying too fight two infections at once. That said, it also might not take longer. See all this dependes on the person. We are all different. DJ

what kind of auto immune diseases fall under this? The only 2 things known to prolong longer than 12 weeks is Chemo therapy and radiation therapy for cancer, and over 1 year of injected drug use on a daily basis.
Other things like Crones disease, IBS, palsy, and 100s of others that have been answered 1000 times in back posts(which you would have known if you had read through back posts) do not prolong the production and detection time for HIV because it is such an active virus and takes over ones body very rapid.
