AidsMeds also states 3 months post exposure is when you can obtain a conclusive negative test result just like this website.
I appreciate it. My focus is more on ARS, not the window period of infection. From what I have gathered, the prevalence for ARS can account for 40%-60% of the time. Symptoms, or there lack of, are nor always indicative or viable for HIV infection (that is understood). I guess my overall introduction may have been too convoluded. Overall, I am curious to know if persons who do indeed undergo symptomatic HIV ARS, what is the timeline? From what I have gathered, both in JAMA and online resources, and have become more interested in online articles and professional interactions, ARS timeline with regards to symptomatic HIV infection occurs roughly within a- 2-4 week timeframe (IF symptomatic HIV infection does occur). Thoughts? sites? any good journals (medically affiliated would be ideal).
and for persons who use IV drug use, would ARS be delayed likely to the use of these IV drugs?
