|Time between contraction and positive test results
Apr 26, 1999
How much time will pass between contraction of H.I.V. and receiving a positive test? Or, if I conducted in high risk behavior, how long should I wait before I get tested?
| Response from Dr. Holodniy
Antibody tests are usually positive within 4-12 weeks after exposure. MH
