Window period my asss

Window Period? What the hell is a window period? The human body doesn't operate according to a window period. If one wants to
test at 3 months and feels confident with the results, so be it. It's about 99% accurate. If one wants to test at 6 month, the test is
>99.9% accurate. That's all.
It doesn't matter what country you live in. No one is bad mouthing your nation's policies. The United States CDC is conservative. The
CDC would rather err on the side of caution. In other words, the 6 month window period is an overly exagerated time frame to catch
EVERYONE (even .1% that seroconvert after 3 months) that has been infected.
