How long after having intercourse does it usually take for hiv to show up when tested?I know sysmptoms may not show up for a while but will tests still determine if your are posititve or not
Response from Dr. McGovern
After a significant potential exposure, testing is usually done up to six months after to be certain. However, the three month test is very reassuring.
Could i have been infected this way please?
