Hi can anyone help with this!

My last exposure was unprotected vaginal sex with a male, on October 25th! I test negative at 12weeks for Hep B, do i need to retest?
When should i test for Hep C on a normal antibody test?

I dont know if to test for Hep C now, or wait till april (6month post exposure), incase antibodies havent developed?

1)Does Hepatitis A,B,C and immune disease make late seroconversion for HIV?
2)How far/long (how many months) do u have to wait to test for hiv if youve got either/both of Hepatitis A,B,C and a immune disease

This has got me worried? Can anyone explain it to me?

I found this at wikipedia and it got me worrying

Three instances of delayed HIV seroconversion occurring in health-care workers have been reported;[8] in these instances, the health-care workers[9] tested negative for HIV antibodies greater than 6 months postexposure but were seropositive within 12 months after the exposure.[10] DNA sequencing confirmed the source of infection in one instance. Two of the delayed seroconversions were associated with simultaneous exposure to hepatitis C virus.

Hello lizzy277.   Sorry we can not help you with your questions as this is a forum for people already diagnosed with a liver disease. 

The best place to get your answers is your physician.........

Take care.........
