I found this on the FAQ of www.positifs.org, which had been mentioned by someone a few weeks ago. I translated using altavista, again.

"With this, it should be added that in certain cases, extremely rare, the appearance of the antibodies can occur beyond three months after a contamination by the HIV. the use of sophisticated ultra techniques, resting on the amplification of the genome of the virus, used in research laboratories, showed that this time can exceed one year, even more than three years."

Most other people that I talk to about this think I am mad, too. You're very generous to allow me one more test, thanks :-)

You know what, I don't think anyone here said it's impossible to test positive more than six months after an exposure. We're all saying that it is highly, highly, highly unlikely. Even after three months for that matter. But no one said it was impossible, because it definitely is, and it has happened.

The key here is to understand that it may happen to one in a billion people. I'm obviously not sure of that number, but I wouldn't be surprised if I'm close. You can't spend time worrying about that. If you think about HIV that way, you'll NEVER stop testing, because it may take years and years for it to show up in your mind. You'll never know when you're in the clear!

Stick to the window periods. If you're negative, then forget about it and stay safe afterwards!
