Window period for DNA PCR
      03/06/05 12:34 AM

Greetings,

I had possible exposure to HIV 3 weeks ago. In a week's time I am leaving for a place that doesnot have any discrete HIV testing facilities. I am tempted to go for a DNA PCR test.

It would help a lot if you can tell me what is the actual window period for a DNA PCR test. I have been told a whole lot of figures - right from 72 hours to 30 days. What is the correct - minimum period one should wait before getting a DNA PCR ?

Also, can a 4 week new-gen ELISA be treated as conclusive ?

I had unprotected anal sex with a low risk individual. I was the insertive partner. The episode was even more low risk because I could never achieve proper/full penetration.
