Hepatitis theoratical question

If someone had hepatitis c for about a year and then became infected with hiv would that person take longer to test positive for hiv? Or would that persons window period be the same as someone who is hcv negative?

As I'm sure you have been told else where, no it does not.

Re: Hepatitis theoratical question

Dear Apollo123, the same question for you, I had hepatitis B for long time ago and then if I became infected with hiv would I take longer to test positive for hiv or not?

I had HBV long time ago, My test result came back negative after 3,5 months from the exposure.
- 3 months: Determine Hiv 1/2: negative
- 3,5 months: Elisa as Doctor instruction (but I see in the result document is Determine Hiv 1/2): Negative: 228/1212 <--- What does it mean?
I still worried about my hiv status.
Thank you and happy new year.

Hiya. Well those numbers dont make sence because the index value that defines your status is is for eg < 0.7 for a negative status or a postive is greater than 1. So somthing may have got confused in translation. The clear thing is you dont have hiv, so thats good news. I will explain about co infection on the next post.

Any test at 3 months and after is conclusive. Co infection or having hep does not delay production of antibodys. The only 3 causes are, medication fir organ transplants, aggresive chemo or your a long time iv drug user and although these cases are rare, it may require a 6 month testinv period, but nothing else would effect your test results.
