There is a lot of information going arround on the net, regarding, HIV, Tests, Window period. I have done the following resume, for everybody, her we go!!. Afetr a risky situation, Antibodys are present, in avarege, after 6 to 8 weeks. Elisa, must be done after 3 months mark to be conclusive. If the risky situation has been done with somedody, known to be HIV +, you must retest, at 6 months, if not, 3 months is ok. Qualitative Polimerase Chain Reaction (PCR) are very sensitieve if done, after 30 days of the risky situation, but to be conclusive, you must also test elisa Neg, after 3 months mark.
