Does anyone know the truth about being coinfected with HIV and Hepatitis C.

My situation: I am a heterosexual male. I was drugged and raped by a man. I believe the motel where I was brought to is the same one where lots of drug users go. I can't prove whether I was or was not injected with anything while I was unconscious.

I tested immediately after the incident for Hepatitis and HIV--both negative of course. I tested negative for HIV at 3 months. My doctor won't test me for HIV for a few more months for some reason (I think I'm only allowed to do it every so many months).

My problem is I've been through a tremendous amount of stress and I want to be done with all this.

I went to the HIV forum and they sent me here. If you people don't know the answer just say so:

QUESTION: If I was injected with anything, do you know if I would require antibody testing out to 6 months or would 3 months be sufficient? Would Hep C inhibit by ability to produce HIV antibodies by 3 months?? If you don't know, just say so.

Thank you.

thesubterraneans, I sorry we couldn't answer your questions to your satisfaction, non of us are medical professionals. You really do need to get the answers from your doctor.

This is a forum for people already diagnosed with a liver disease. Not about the testing for it.

Good luck............
