Delayed seroconversion

Dear All,

Appreciate if someone can give me the coorect answer. I heared from CDC and different web-sites there is a chance for the production of antibodies will be after 6 months. ( 1 year , 2 year , etc...) and the reason for the
delayed seroconversion in someone.

If my result Negative after 6 months , still there is chance I have delayed seroconversion !!!!

I hope if somebody can help me or correct me ,plus if the PCR test can solve the problem.

Thanks and best regards,

No, delayed seroconversion is a myth. The window period is 3 months as you were told in your other thread.

What do you mean with a myth!!!

Some doctors said some cases may take more than 6 months!!

is this was old cases because no new generation of tests?

Thanks,

Some doctors are not up to date on HIV testing.

In my country we use Elisa test 4generation.

Is this enough after 3 months to give 99.99% accurate result?

Thank you for your support.
