Testing window question...
      #260851 - 02/02/12 08:24 AM

Hello all-

I had a scare early last year and was tested twice, once at 2 months and again around 4 months from my risk of exposure. Results both times were negative, and from all the information I gathered on this site and the resounding advice of the experts and users I assumed this was conclusive since I tested negative after the three month period had elapsed.

My question is: why when I was at the health center getting tested did the person administering the test tell me there was a 6 month window? This was early 2011 and I live in the middle of the U.S. Does anyone know? Just hoping someone has some input.

Thanks.

And just to clarify-- both my tests were blood draws with a two week waiting period for results.

Well if you add up the time frame of your 2 tests it comes to 6 months. And you say its been two years? , why are you still fretting .

windows are six months for cases in which the immune system is comrometido by ejemlplo people who have undergone organ transplants, cancer patients or injecting drug users, these cases are those that rely on immunological window six months, if your immune system was probably committed to six months if you are a healthy people and good habits, do not understand why you said that, however Realize tests at three, six months and then a year to leave of doubts and relieve your fears
