Seroconversion varies from person to person. Some can convert in a week, some take 6 weeks, and some with severely comprimised immune systems can take several months.

That being said, the "average" time to seroconversion is 22 days or so.

From the Centers for Disease Control:

"When a person has been infected with HIV, an antibody appears in the blood. This can be detected by a simple blood test; the person is said to become HIV-positive. It may take from three weeks to three months for a person who has come into contact with the HIV virus to develop a positive blood test. This is called the window period . In this time a person can carry the the virus and still have a negative blood test"

According to your eloquent post, the window period is 8 weeks. This is not the case currently.

Cheers

Jazz
