Hi! In answer to your question, your hepatitis status should have no bearing whatsoever on your HIV status. They are separate diseases. I understand your wanting to be cleared ASAP, but it does sometimes take longer to get a definite positive or negative result. You would be doing yourself a disservice to get it sooner. Wait the 4 mos. and have it done again. If you are negative then, you can be pretty sure that you did not contract anything. It usually takes decades for hep C patients to experience symptoms. So if you DID contract hepatitis, you can be treated very early in the disease and should do well. Just have a little patience...then you will know for sure.
