ok,lets start.
1.you tested neg at six months.you are neg.
2.ive only come across one person in our clinic in 8years,
that took longer than 6months to seroconvert.
that was because they had advanced aids,
and they had seroreverted.(no antibodys)
you should see your doctor,for a full checkup!.dr d ryan.

I agree...Something fishy going on here. You stated that only one case took longer then 6 months to seroconvert and that was because they had advanced aids and seroreverted! You have got to be very proud of this amazing case!!
How could you know he converted later then 6 months if it was due to seroreversion? or "advanced" aids?
according to your story not only did this person late convert(rare) but went on to advanced aids and seroreversion (remakably rarer) in an unheard of unbelievably short amount of time.


Or am I missing something?
oh, I also think a Doctor would know how to spell-antibodies

if you want to help please do but remember the doctors oath

ok,i will try to explain,somtimes we see a patient with full-blown aids,sadly some patients leave it for so long
to seek medical advice that they are in a very late stage.
now when this happens their immune system is so low that any antibodies they have are gone.so if we tested them,
they test neg.now when we put them on combos(anti hiv- drugs)their immune system improves and BINGO!the antibodies-
are back.(seroconvert)....dr d ryan.
