Longer then a year
      #205256 - 08/28/06 05:57 PM

Does anyone have any articles to post about the cases where people didnt produce any antibodies to detect and has it happened recentely or is it just in the 80's these cases occured ?

When you say you took five months to test positive, how often did you test before the 5 month mark? Did you test negative at 3 months or later and then seroconverted at 5 months?

Listen 3 months conclusive negative. No one takes longer with a few exceptions in MILLION AND MILLION of cases. Ive done a lot of research and in the past year I have not seen a proven positive test after 6 weeks never mind 5 months. HIV isnt ur problem move on.

There are cases that still take longer than prescribed window period to test positive. Its rare but does happen.

He's saying he has a 5 month NEGATIVE. This is the same kid that thinks that either his gf or that needle he says he sat on is going to give him HIV. He's just a troll, trying to start up the whole window debate again.

SIGH**** It sure will be nice when school starts and they have better things to do.

There are cases where people never have an immune response to the virus. What you have to remember is that everyone will respond differently to the infection. Not being an expert, I assume that most will seroconvert within 3-6 months. But I also realize that terms like MOST do not mean everyone. There is a posting from 99 that discusses a woman with symptoms but no antibodies. Its not the test that failed to detect it, but more of a biological failure, and her body failed to produce the antibodies. Good Luck.
