If donated blood tests positive for HIV, how long after the donation date will the donor of that blood be notified? Thanks

If donated blood tests positive for HIV, how long after the donation date will the donor of that blood be notified? Thanks Dear Scarlett, In my own personal Experience I heard from the Red Cross in A month, they do test for Both HIV 1&2, plus a viral load that detects particles of the virus in the plasma also the P24 antigen.

Dear Lori, thanks for your response. Did the Red Cross notify you by letter? It must have been a shock for you and I hope you are doing OK. Out of curiosity, had you been tested for hiv prior to your donation? How long after a possible risk?

Dear Scarlett, It was 4 months After a possible risk, but I had tested neg. at 3months and the Dr. said I was Ok considering 95-99% would test pos. after 12wks. Plus boyfriend was also tested Neg. I figured I was ok so I donated blood though I was still a little worried because I had gotten so sick. Thank God everything came back ok and I'm sooo Proud of my donor card. I wish you luck, Feel free to contact me anytime. Take Care:)

Hi again Lori, are you saying that because you got a blood donor card back, you can be sure you did not test positive? Do you know how long it takes the blood bank to perform all the tests? I'm sorry to be such a bug but I cannot find the answers to my question. Any info you or anyone else out there has would be appreciated
