Anybody here knows the window period for HTLV?
      10/18/10 03:45 PM

The reason im asking is because i have been trying to get info about HTLV window period and most sites say 40 to 50 days is the average to turn positive but i have read cases of people testing far out to 4 months and comes back negative but later tests come back positives(nothing straight forward as with HIV which every where it says 3 months) ..my Dr ordered a HTLV test and i will be getting the results by thursday or friday im starting to think i might be infected with HTLV because the symptoms fit specially the white thrush w/ scalloped tongue (normally happens early with HTLV as oppose to a few years after with HIV) and the brain demyelination which i have as my MRI results show, both of the symptoms can happen with HTLV at a very early stage of the infection even a few weeks after you get infected and that's exactly how it happened to me so im thinking i have HTLV, i hope not but im almost sure that this is what it is, which it would suck big time because there is no treatment for HTLV available yet.
I know this is not the right place to ask this as this is an HIV forum but i thought i would give it a try because i cannot seem to find a straight answer anywhere else.
