you actually are taking someone who has "I spoke to doctors", which ones!??! seriously?

Tops is 6 months and that's extremely rare.

Go do a few searches. Much better than doctors somebody says they talked to.

HCV and HIV serology
By Joel E. Gallant, M.D., M.P.H. (10-Sep-2001)


Dear Dr. Gallant,

I would like to know if CHRONIC Hep C can delay production of HIV antibodies. Meaning, that HCV was already present in the body for a number of years before exposure to HIV.

Thank you


Chronic hepatitis C is said to delay seroconversion in some individuals.

Do you have chronic Hep C? This would be classified as an infection that is already established in the body. Not a new one. That means that it can be determined if you have it with a test.

It says CHRONC Hep C COULD (as in might, maybe could be), delay seroconversion, but if you already have HEP C one would hope you already know that. If you don't and you think you do. Get a damn test for Hep C.

I really don't think you would get HIV and HEP C at the same time. My personal experience with Hep C is this. My husband has both. I got HIV, but after 10 years of certainly not CASUAL CONTACT I still test negative for Hep C. It's my understanding from my doctor that you don't get it from sex.

So is your question because you are already infected with Hep C and in that case, your doctor can keep an eye on all this...or are you just looking for another reason to freak yourself out?

In addition, that question was posted to the good doctor in 1991. In further studies it has been found that the delay in conversion if a person is battling HIV and hep C co infection at the same time,(as in they just were infected with both in one sexual act)only delays the time it would take to test HIV+ by days, not months if actually infected. The conclusive amount of time is 13mo unless, you are on drugs to keep you from rejecting an organ donation, are undergoing chemotherapy or on PEP then it is 13 weeks after you are finished with it. Instead of showing HIV+ on a standard antibody by week 6 you may show by week 7 if actually infected. If you had read, back through past posts and the 100’s of times this question has been posted you would know the answer but I guess we are here to play mimeograph and answer the same question over and over.

The conclusive amount of time is 13mo (was supposed to be weeks, not mo) unless, you are on drugs to keep you from rejecting an organ donation, are undergoing chemotherapy or on PEP then it is 13 weeks after you are finished with it.
