Glad the delivery went well. I'm sure the womb was much more cozy. May Hannah have a great, happy, and fulfilled life.

Welcome to the forums, even though it does suck you have to join us. But, it is good you tested and are now in care. I look forward to hearing more from you.
All the best,
Welcome to the forums. It is good you know your status and are getting care. As for how long, that would be very difficult to determine. If you've had previous negative tests, that can give a timeline. With your two negative results, it would appear the infection occurred sometime after that.
The good thing is you know now and are in care. All the best and keep in touch.

Andy Thank you so much!
Today i was talking with this guy who really told me that he was really healthy, i asked for him to do an elisa test, but he don't want it, cause he say that he's pretty sure he doesn't have anything and he said he used condom like the whole time... Im still not sure if i should leave the PEP, should I?

Scary stuff. Interesting how they are flying those two folks over here. I still wonder how they can fly that small plane all the way to Liberia.
They are conveniently being flown to Atlanta. I would personally be more afraid of becoming a lab experiment of the CDC. I am reminiscent in the early '80s when some were calling for people with AIDS to be quarantined. Hopefully they will find antibodies/vaccine for Ebola. Scary indeed.

Welcome to the forums. Sorry you're here but glad you found us. The short answer about your numbers is that they are good. Especially since you're now on meds. The question of when you got the disease and presumably whether you've passed on the virus is harder to answer. You might have been positive since June 2012. There's nothing to feel guilty about if you have not knowingly transmitted the virus. and you wouldn't be alone. This epidemic is largely driven by positive people who do not know they are positive!
