Hep Coinfection? Gman?
      12/26/02 09:48 PM

I have a quick question I would love to get some knowledgeable people's help on. I had protected sex with a prostitute where the condom broke. I got really sick about three weeks later (bad night sweats and extreme fatigue and other symptoms!). I had elavated liver enzymes so my doc thought I might have hepatitis. He tested me for HIV, Hep A B and C and I came back negative on all of the at three weeks and Hiv at 90 days (he didnt do another Hep test). He also ran a DNA PCR because I told him I heard Hep can cause a delay in antibody production. I came out negative on the DNA as well... what a total relief!! Now I'm freaking out again for two reasons:
1) Does Hep cause the DNA test to be false?
2) The DNA test doesn't test for HIV2 and the girl I was with was from Tiland. So could I have HIV2 (I tested Elisa at 3 weeks and 90 days for it and both were negative)and the Hep is causing it to delay antibody production.

thanks in advance
