Acute HIV infection may hinder Antibodies?????

Does this make any sense????

First of all Acute HIV infection does not mean that you are Seroconverting in the sense that when we say seroconversion means when we start to develop antibodies.

This is what i read.


"A person may, or may not, show positive on the test during (or shortly after) the Acute Viral Syndrome.Many people will start producing antibodies after the Acute Viral Syndrome (AFTER), but I cannot say if most people will be antibody positive 10 days after this syndrome".

So is it that if someone has an Acute HIV infection it makes them different from the the person who did not develop these bad sysmptoms. In Terms of Seroconversion timing with us saying how 8 weeks is a sufficent indication since Acute HIV infection symptoms can last longer any we may not show positive untill the acute stage is gone. Which i understand can be past the 12 week before antibody detection.

1. so if i have an Acute HIV infection . i jus have to wate past the 12 weeks. so my eight week 5 days negative was just encouragement and i am far from out of the wood since i might be experiencing Acute HIV infection .

since Antibody production is basically after the infection stage is over(not Saying that we cant develop antibodies wwith in the 12 weeks. but Acute HIV infection may change the timeline of seroconversion and we develop after 12 weeks.)

PLZ!!!!! can i get some input

Thanks Alot .

Does Any of this make sense????????

Buddy I have read your post 3 times now and no it makes no sense whatsoever.

To clarify what is a very simple situation and one you seem intent on complicating. Seroconversion takes, on average, 22 days. Seroconversion is the process of going from HIV negative to HIV positive. After this period an HIV antibody test will detect the presence of HIV antibodies and you will test positive.

Given the fact you have had an HIV antibody test at 8 weeks (56 day, nearly 3 times the average length of time for seroconversion) it is extremely unlikely you will later test positive.

Buddy, yes, it really is this simple!!

Kevin.
