I have read about 1 person he seroconverted at 4 months after a 3 month negative.
Seems he had a co infection of Hepatitis
I have read that a co infection of Hepatitis can cause a delayed serology.

Can U handle the truth???...;) new

If you want the truth, I'll give it to you...and can also provide links to info from all the major institutions
and various groups conducting seroconversion studies.

Here's the deal chap:

The below ONLY APPLIES IF YOU'VE ACTUALLY BEEN EXPOSED TO HIV...so save the
HATE threads.

In most cases 96-99% of the cases with the 3rd generation ELISAs (been used since 95 therefore
they're not that new, but THEY ARE the latest that are approved. 4th generation tests are in the
approval process right now) can detect antibodies within 8 weeks. At 12 weeks you're at 99% and
higher. The anger people have here is that they think it's the fault of the CDC or scientists that there is a
1% margin for error. The fact is it has nothing to do with the CDC or anyone else. The culprit is
NATURE...everyone has a different immune system, with different genetics and kinetics...HIV is an
imperfect science and so is its diagnosis. There are people that can take longer...BUT THIS IS VERY
VERY RARE. Many factors need to be in place for this to happen...poor immune system, possible
co-infection, very low inoculation from virus etc.

So if you've had a low risk exposure: getting a BJ, sex with someone of unknown status etc...a 3 month
test is enough. If you've had sex (unprotected) with someone who has HIV, is gay, IV drug user or sex
worker than a 3 month test is enough EXCEPT you need to make sure that you follow up with a 6
month confirmation.

Maybe its posible if you get Hepatitis C, but Hep C is not transmitted in a sexual intercourse. Is possible to get Hep C that way but only teoetically. Hep C is transmitted via blood and in that case HIV too. But we are talking about BLOOD. So, if you had a sexual encounter one time with a woman you ignore his HIV status, the 3 months or even 6 weeks could be enough. Go with a doctor, they are there to help. Just ask him his experience with HIV (urologist, infectologist, etc.)

I can assure you I'm not Shane, although he's a nice chap. I use kinetics quite often and maybe he's picked it up from yours truly...I in outside your borders, but I think our friend Sahne lives in the States.

Co-infection means, infection with another virus such as Hep b,c,d,e,f,g. Nut this would still be rare that it would take past three months.
