HIV testing Period
Apr 24, 2001

Someone said; Some cases will not test positive at 6 months, That case was in Africa at 2 years and If later, some cases will test positive over 2 years, Is this wrong?


Response from Dr. Dezube

Six months is the appropriate time to get the final test after an exposure. It is not necessary to be tested after that.
