Special characteristics of outliers in medical studies
May 26, 2012
Hello, I'm quite intrigued over wether or not there are special characteristics that describe people who take longer than the usual window period (2 to 3 weeks), to develop HIV antibodies. If there are and have been identified as statistically significant differences, it would be very helpful for people as me that are so afraid and uncertain of being infected while still testing negative on typical HIV antibodies testing out of the window period.
Thanks a lot, Jesus

Hi The guidelines for HIV testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 3 months, if both of these tests are negative then so are you.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
