HIV Transmission and Education >> Am I Infected?


Window period
      03/31/00 03:04 AM

One aspect of the hiv conversation which can be so confusing is
the length of the "window period", or the amount of time it may
take for someone to test positive for antibodies to hiv. Five
months and almost two weeks after a possible exposure, I have
tested negative with the ELISSA. This follows a negative
PCR(-qualitative) test at two weeks and another PCR at 4 weeks
after the same possible exposure. The information I have received
from at least one doctor is that I'm fine and I should forget
about this and move on with my life. However, I have heard
conflicting information about this window period and am entering
into a relationship and dont want to put anyone else at risk.
Does anyone have any information about this topic or, more
specifically, any opinions about how one would feel after my test
results? Thank you so much in advance...
