Pep
May 30, 2014

How PEP affects window period? After 7 months from exposure i tested hiv negative with a rapid test/ finger prick. Is this conclusive or PEP extended my window period? please help.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi PEP would not extend the window period. The testing guidelines for HIV are to be initially tested at 3 weeks post exposure and then again at 90 days. As long as there are no other exposures happened during this time frame than the results are conclusive.

You can consider yourself HIV free from the needle stick incident. Which coincidentally only carries a less than 3%.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
