Drugs and window period hiv
Hi
For my own knowledge and perhaps others who read this could you please answer the following questions

1 Would weed alcohol and nitrous oxide have any impact on hiv window period?
2 Would not eating have any impact on a hiv window period?
3 Would drinking alcohol and eating not that well for 3 months  would have any impact on the hiv window period?
4 Would being underweight have any impact on hiv window period?
5 Would a mild seroconversion mean a longer hiv window period?

Thanks

As you should know, we ask clients to make only two questions on our Forums in any 6moth period.  this is your third, as well as your 24th overall post so far this month. Taken together this suggests that you are having trouble moving forward from your sexually exposures, even with the definitive negative tests you have had.  I will provide brief answers to your questions and that will be the end of this thread.  Then no further posted please until February 2013.

1 Would weed alcohol and nitrous oxide have any impact on hiv window period?
No.

2 Would not eating have any impact on a hiv window period?
No.

3 Would drinking alcohol and eating not that well for 3 months  would have any impact on the hiv window period?
No.  Severe, malnutrition might lightly hamper antibody development but not meaningful. Further, other manifestations of the severe malnutrition would have to be present before this could even theoretically occur

4 Would being underweight have any impact on hiv window period?
No.

5 Would a mild seroconversion mean a longer hiv window period?
No.
