I've heard that if you have been infected with HIV and Hepatitis

Customer Question

I've heard that if you have been infected with HIV and Hepatitis it can take upto 12 months for the tests results to be reliable. Is this correct? and can a symbicort turbo inhaler affect the results aswell?

This is Dr. David

that is not correct.

if you have been infected with HIV or hepatitis, antibodies to the infection usually show up in 3-6 months

an symbicort inhailer would not affect the results

it sounds like you have had HIV and hepatitis testing and were negative

but you are still worried.

if your testing is negative, you don't have to be worried about HIV and hepatitis

why are you worried about being infected with HIV or hepatitis?
