Re: Testing for Hepatitis B
Ok, I understand usually people do not get worried about hep too much, as the main concern is usually HIV right, as far as STDs are concerned? As you say, most people can get rid of the hep infection after few months (with some exception). So six weeks is still too early for Hep B testing correct?
In regards to hiv, say if you started to seroconvert around 5 weeks.. would a test pick this up straight after the onset, or would there be some time - say a week - between the onset of seroconversion and the earliest this would be picked up by the antibody test? And if you start seroconversion, does the body still produce the antigen which can be picked by the antigen part of duo test during seroconversion? Or would seroconversion affect the duo test and create a window period for duo test?
