HIV Prevention and Testing > Am I Infected?

Need Advice



I was just wondering, If i had co-infection of Syphilis & HIV, will the formation of syphilis anti-body delay in the formation of HIV anti-body.

my test results came out +ve for VDRL but -ve for HIV in week 4.


No, syphilis infection will not delay HIV antibodies or have any effect on an HIV test.

However, there is still a 13 week window for HIV testing. Your test at week 4, though promising, is not considered definitive. I assume you had unprotected anal and/or vaginal sex?
