HIV's window period
Feb 20, 2002

What is the window period for HIV? I've heard anywhere from 4 weeks to 6 months

Response from Dr. Feinberg

The window period is typically several weeks, usually 2-8. There are some outliers for whom the window period is longer, but this is not common.

Re: Antibody Question
Metronidazole, Nasnonex, & Thrush
